$10 laptop – dumb and dumber !

After posting the information of so called $10 laptop in my previous post and now the details (??) have come out via Times of India that mentions the following,

“ The so-called laptop actually turned out to be a storage device containing megabytes of data info which can be accessed by a user by connecting this device to a laptop. It meant that unlike the internet, this device can display that information that has already been stored.”

sakshat  This is really a shame for people who have so aggressively made the world believe that they are actually unveiling a laptop.  This looks nothing but a USB drive hopefully capable of some computing itself.

Not sure what the guys in IIT, Vellore University and IISc thought when they publicised this as a laptop. 

This looks nothing but a pre-election gimmick done by government to woo the mass people who have little idea about IT !
