New Delhi, India (CNN) -- India has unveiled a $35 computer prototype as part of its program to provide connectivity to its students and teachers at affordable prices.
Kapil Sibal, the country's human resources development minister, displayed what he called a low-cost computing and access device in New Delhi on Thursday.
The ministry said the price would gradually fall to $10 a piece.
A 10 dollar computer? Holy crap. You know what a 10 dollar computer is going to do to HP, Dell, and the rest? Won't kill 'em, but it will put a serious dent in their business, if these new computers make it to the US.
But I am looking to the future. What will it bring? How about every citizen in the US having online access through their cell phone service? No more need for newspapers. They all go online. Same with many magazines. And goodbye USPS. No need for you either. How about real-time online universities? The possibilities are endless. IMHO, a revolution that brings us 10 dollar computers is going to be....... um, what's the word?.... Oh yea....
A revolution. LOL.
