Low-cost Computing

Two recent stories: one on Simputer (MSNBC, Slashdot thread) and another on BBC. The Simputer story is about the lack of investor support for the project, which has slowed manufacturing. The BBC story is about “Computer on Wheels trials, a technician visits villages on a motorcycle, carrying a laptop computer. The villagers can then look at pages which have been downloaded from the internet.”
