It’s nice that Google is doing this. But a program like this shouldn’t have to rely on heavy subsidies and/or donations. The demand is just too great for even a company the size of Google to meet.

So, why wouldn’t a low-cost tablet with a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse be just as effective? I mean there are already tablets under $100 retail, and cheap KB+mouse also exists. They can’t do a lot, but it’s a lot better to have SOME access to computing than none at all? It doesn’t hurt that we’re probably talking quantities approaching billions, either?
