I am now in Singapore after a long and relaxing holiday back home. Home sweet home, I start to miss it now. :)
As a first article for all of you during this uncertain 2009, India seems to have good news for the world's poor people: a 10-buck laptop. That is right, a laptop for ten US dollar and they (the Indian government, and a few Indian colleges) claim this laptop has 2GB of RAM, WiFi, Ethernet, and even expandable memory. Articles on this news abound, but the following two are interesting (and short). Click here and here.
What sets me wondering is why they stopped at the price, they can go on and claim this laptop is insanely powerful, and even can end world hunger and bring peace to the middle east.
I am quite saddened and disappointed by their humbleness this time.
