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.

Amen, Laptops are a nice addition to quality education, but when there are worse things at hand in these developing countries, I dont see how it would help out. Famine, warfare, aids as fizzled mentioned above. I would rather see those get attention, then the very few that attend school to get a laptop.
