Six Degrees of Crunchation Contest: No Entries = My Dog Gets the Q


It was only last week that everyone reported the One Laptop Per Child project’s first laptop changed its name to the CM1, which stands for Children’s Machine 1. But now their official wiki has removed all references to CM1 and replaced it with “2B1 – The Children’s Machine”. Does “2B” stand for “to be”?

In any case, the laptop still has a 7.5-inch, 1200×900 screen, video/still camera, three USB ports, SD slot, VoIP capabilities, 400MHz AMD Geode processor and 128MB of RAM. The price has gone up from $100 to $140, but it’s still cheap for everything that children will be getting.
