Negroponte Puts Up

Kudos to Mr. Negroponte:

Nicholas Negroponte, chairman and founder of MIT's Media Labs, says he is developing a laptop PC that will go on sale for less than $100 (£53).

He told the BBC World Service programme Go Digital he hoped it would become an education tool in developing countries.

He said one laptop per child could be " very important to the development of not just that child but now the whole family, village and neighbourhood".
Next up: voice-activated PC wristwatches. Dick Tracy, we hear you!
