The guy is a do good romantic. He's refusing to sell the computers to regular people in non-devloping countries, and then he wines about not having the three million dollar orders that he needs.

Making $75 bucks from poor people is a sin, imo.

I think what is needed is not cheaper computers, or cheap cybercafes and more computer school labs.

There not making $75 profit, the price has "gone up" by $75 from the original media releases that put the price tag at $100.
Seems they could not get the sponsors they hoped for the project, nor anyone to build them cheaper.
