MIT's $100 laptop CNET News.com
MIT released images of it's $100 laptop design. For our purposes, think of it as a hand-crank-powered Flash player. It's much more than that, of course - even includes tablet-pc type functionality with handwriting recognition. But add this device to cell-phones, PDA's, ever-cheaper commercial laptops, and TV/DVR's with a computer-in-the-box--and you see that we are designing apps for a world much different than the banks of educational-PC's-in-a-lab and family-home-computer-on-the-desk.
