One Laptop Per Child And Intel

Intel has joined forces with the non-profit One Laptop Per Child foundation, which aids children in the developing world. Here is a snippet from the BBC in regards:

The agreement marks a huge turnaround for both the not-for-profit One Laptop per Child (OLPC) foundation and Intel.

In May this year, Nicholas Negroponte, the founder of OLPC, said the silicon giant "should be ashamed of itself" for efforts to undermine his initiative.

He accused Intel of selling its own cut-price laptop - the Classmate PC - below cost to drive him out of markets in the developing world.

"What happened in the past has happened," Will Swope of Intel told the BBC News website. "But going forward, this allows the two organisations to go do a better job and have a better impact for what we are both very eager to do, which is help kids around the world."

It is good to hear that these companies have decided to work together for the betterment of children around the globe. When I first heard of the $100.00 laptop I thought it was a fantastic idea, and it can only just keep getting better with chip-making giant Intel now on board. I believe that these laptops will be a key in providing education to some of the world's most poorest children. Excellent news!
