One Laptop Per Child Laptop to Cost Only $50 in Less Than Two Years


You know those $100 laptops part of the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) program? You know, the ones that are supposed to generate clean water and optimal living conditions with the turn of a crank? In less that two years they’ll only cost $50, according to the initiative’s CTO. Good news, everyone.

I’m not even going to pretend to know anything about non-profits. So I will sit here, quietly, and applaud the OLPC group for at least trying to improve the lives of needy people around the world. Happy feel-good Friday!
