Intel There's nothing like allegations of predatory conduct to bring two organizations together. Nicholas Negroponte's One Laptop Per Child project has decided to bring Intel on board as a partner and a possible future supplier, just a few months after Negroponte went on 60 Minutes and essentially accused the chip maker of trying to destroy his low-cost PC project. Intel has agreed to join the board of the OLPC and work with the organization on possible "collaborations involving technology and educational content," according to a press release Friday morning.

I think Intel is doing this just to ultimately get the OLPC to switch to Intel everything--processors, video, chipsets, etc--that way they'll be getting money from their competition and the Classmate--and they'll still have an education-laptop revenue source if the Classmate fails.
