Is Intel trying to torpedo the OLPC?Larry Dignan in ZDNet Blogs:
Nicholas Negroponte, head of the One Laptop Per Child project, blasted Intel for trying to usurp any momentum his effort is getting.I watched 60 Minutes last night and I have to say, I found Negroponte far more credible than Intel's CEO. Clearly, Intel, which had belittled the OLPC project repeatedly, later jumped into this market solely to prevent Negroponte from selling AMD-based hardware to third world countries. Meanwhile, all Intel has really accomplished is preventing Negroponte, who is clearly and blatantly acting solely out of charity--OLPC is non-profit--from fulfilling his dream of spreading computing around the world. Intel should be ashamed of itself. This is an outrage.
