PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless It all started with Apple/TechCrunch blogger M.G. Siegler making a huge fuss over something he didn't understand, and while that in and of itself isn't particularly interesting, one of the outcomes of this little internet drama is a comment on Google+ (the tenth one) that so perfectly encapsulates just how important Android is for the world that I felt the need to share it with you. It's the holiday season after all.

The problem in many poor countries is that they are not poor at all. War, corruption, dictatorship makes things nasty for the people.

For example there is a lot of food in Africa, the problem is the logistics. Just try getting food from A to B while dogging rebels, gangs and corrupt officials.

Perhaps Google maps on a cheap android phone will help finding an alternate route, but I doubt it will solve war or corruption.

When there is safety and no more or much less corruption no doubt easy and cheap Internet access can contribute in education.

But we've had this before with the Linux movement. Someone makes up an idea and it becomes a dogma. These ideas often don't take in account reality and other factors. People who make up these ideas often have no clue what people want and people need. Steve did and became rich selling expensive and restrictive stuff (as some people here claim).
