Have you heard of the $100 dollar laptop yet? It’s “spillproof, rainproof, dustproof and drop-proof”.
It doesn’t run Windows or OS. And it doesn’t have any drives. Interesting technology.

This is one step closer to everyone in the world having access to the internet. Once that happens, what will that mean for education and the whole idea that information and knowledge comes to the masses through professionals and teachers?

So, anyone gonna get one? (Or two?)
