Susan,

Just so that you're aware, www.olpcnews.com is an anti-OLPC site according to some source, who also say it's possibly a bait from Intel and Microsoft (astroturf blogging)..

re: "some source"

If you don't have proof, why are you presenting such gossip? You're as much a "baiter" as your theorized Intel or Microsoft.

In that light, I have a source that says he knows someone that talked with someone who had a email from a very reliable source that told his neighbor at a very well known sledding hill that all Unoobtu users have an IQ of a retarded Spider Monkey (I think I also might have seen that story on either FOX or NHK news), so I guess with all those facts it must be true.

However . . .

After reading some of the articles and postings at the site, I think Schestowitz's third cousin's aunt's boyfriend might be right on this one. The site definitely has that Intel/Microsoft stink about it--either that or those posting at the site genuinely want to take a taste of the I/M drug.

You are what you preach

I saw the postings myself, not just told by others who are highly familiar with the OLPC story. They also slag off other Linux items like the Eee PC's Linux (they cited me on Xandros UI and 'patent tax').

This site might be like IP-Wars, possibly backed by SCO. It'll have to change its way to earn confidence.

I made my own wearable computer with a Raspberry Pi, and it was almost too easy

Ever since I read about the crazy wearable pioneers back in the ‘90s and early 2000s, I've wanted a wearable computer of my own. I had two major requirements, however: it had to be a computer, and I had to be able to wear it. Smartphones, for the most part, have supplanted most people's interest in or need for a wearable computer. They're great, I highly endorse smartphones. But you can't really "wear" them in any functional way. Read more
