These displays can be used in high-resolution black and white in bright sunlight—all at a cost of approximately $35." msgid "faqa4a" msgstr "Second, we will get the fat out of the systems. Today's laptops have become obese. Two-thirds of their software is used to manage the other third, which mostly does the same functions nine different ways." msgid "faqa4b" msgstr "Third, we will market the laptops in very large numbers (millions), directly to ministries of education, which can distribute them like textbooks." msgid "faqq5" msgstr "Why is it important for each child to have a computer? What's wrong with community-access centers?" msgid "faqa5" msgstr "One does not think of community pencils-kids have their own. They are tools to think with, sufficiently inexpensive to be used for work and play, drawing, writing, and mathematics. A computer can be the same, but far more powerful. Furthermore, there are many reasons it is important for a child to own something—like a football, doll, or book—not the least of which being that these belongings will be well-maintained through love and care." msgid "faqq6" msgstr "What about connectivity? Aren't telecommunications services expensive in the developing world?" msgid "faqa6" msgstr "When these machines pop out of the box, they will make a mesh network of their own, peer-to-peer. This is something initially developed at MIT and the Media Lab. We are also exploring ways to connect them to the backbone of the Internet at very low cost." msgid "faqq7" msgstr "What can a $1000 laptop do that the $100 version cannot?" msgid "faqa7" msgstr "Not much. The plan is for the XO to do almost everything. What it will not do is store a massive amount of data—but it will have network access to a server that can." msgid "faqq8" msgstr "How will these be marketed?" msgid "faqa8" msgstr "The laptops will be sold to governments and issued to children by schools on a basis of one laptop per child. We have been in discussion with Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, Central America, Ethiopia, Libya, Nigeria, Rwanda, Pakistan, and Thailand. An additional, modest allocation of machines will be used to seed developer communities in a number of other countries. A commercial version of the machine will be explored in 2008." msgid "faqq9" msgstr "When do you anticipate these laptops reaching the market? What do you see as the biggest hurdles?" msgid "faqa9" msgstr "Our schedule is to have units ready for shipment by mid 2007. Manufacturing will begin when 5 to 10 million machines have been ordered and paid for in advance." msgid "faqa9a" msgstr "The biggest hurdle will be manufacturing 100 million of anything. This is not just a supply-chain problem, but also a design problem. The scale is daunting, but I find myself amazed at what some companies are proposing to us. It feels as though at least half the problems are being solved by mere resolve." msgid "faqq10" msgstr "Who is the original design manufacturer (ODM) of the XO?" msgid "faqa10" msgstr "Quanta Computer Inc. of Taiwan has been chosen as the original design manufacturer (ODM) for the XO project. The decision was made after the board reviewed bids from several possible manufacturing companies." msgid "faqa10a" msgstr "Quanta Computer Inc. was founded in 1988 in Taiwan. With over US $10 billion in sales, Quanta is the world's largest manufacturer of laptop PCs; the company also manufactures mobile phones, LCD TVs, and servers and storage products. In addition, Quanta recently opened a new US $200 million R&D center, Quanta R&D Complex (QRDC), in Taiwan. The facility, which opened in Q3 of 2005, has 2.2 million square feet of floor space, and a capacity to house up to 7,000 engineers." msgid "faqq11" msgstr "How will this initiative be structured?" msgid "faqa11" msgstr "The XO is being developed by One Laptop per Child (OLPC), a Delaware-based, non-profit organization created by faculty members from the MIT Media Lab to design, manufacture, and distribute laptops that are sufficiently inexpensive to provide every child in the world access to knowledge and modern forms of education. OLPC is based on constructionist theories of learning pioneered by Seymour Papert and later Alan Kay, as well as the principles expressed in Nicholas Negroponte's book <i>Being Digital</i>. The corporate members are Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), Brightstar, Chi Lin, eBay, Google, Marvell, News Corporation, Nortel, Quanta, Red Hat, and SES Astra." #: map.html msgid "map" msgstr "नक्सा" msgid "green" msgstr "हरियो" msgid "red" msgstr "रातो" msgid "orange" msgstr "सुन्तला" msgid "yellow" msgstr "पहेंलो" msgid "mapp1" msgstr "(हरियो) those countries we plan to pilot" msgid "mapp2" msgstr "(रातो) those countries we plan to include in the post-launch phase" msgid "mapp3" msgstr "(सुन्तला) those countries who have expressed interest at the ministry-of-education level or higher" msgid "mapp4" msgstr "(पहेंलो) those countries who are currently seeking government support"
