Laptop Riot

CNN reports: Panic Ensues In Rush For Cheap Laptops.

Okay folks, this is pretty good proof that people want technology to be more affordable. The next time a school system sells its used laptops off ($50/iBook), PLEASE CONTACT ME so I can research what the people DO with the darn things. I’m dying to know if they’re playing games or reading news or creating Blogger accounts.

At least now I know where to go to get old laptops for the experiment. Just find all the early-adopter school districts that are upgrading their computers, try not to mention the people hitting each other with folding chairs, and voila: instant research.
