More than one laptop

Posted 10 years ago by Adam Gautsch

The WSJ has an article about how Intel and Microsoft are competing with the One Laptop computers. The sub-headline is How a Computer for the Poor Got Stomped by Tech Giants. Which seems a lot unfair. Intel and Microsoft were spurred by competition to drop the price of computers in developing countries and now those countries have more choice.

I found the key quote to be

"I'm not good at selling laptops," Mr. Negroponte has told colleagues. "I'm good at selling ideas."

Well, Microsoft and Intel are good at selling technology. Why not let them do it.
