Submission + - MiiPC: Everything That's Wrong With Kickstarter, Andoid PCs (itworld.com)

jfruh writes: MiiPC's Kickstarter pitch was simple: a small, affordable Android-based PC that gave parents controls over what their kids could do online. On this promise, they raised $175,000, three times their goal. The end product demonstrates the limits of both what a Kickstarter can really deliver and how well Android works as a desktop OS. Shouldn't a keyboard-and-mouse driven PC UI be completely clear of menus that urge you to touch or tap on things? And shouldn't a PC sold explicitly to help parents guide their children's Internet use include Web controls?
