Breakthrough deal


After fears
that the OLPC might not pique the interests of third-world governments, Peru has just announced that has ordered 260,000 units.

Nicholas Negroponte, an MIT professor and founder of the project, revealed that Mexican billionaire and longtime friend, Carlos Slim, had ordered 50,000 units for distribution in Mexico.
