$100 Laptop Starts Mass Production, In Kids Hands October 2007

A major milestone in the OLPC saga has just been reached. After hyping it for five years, the "$100" laptop is finally ready to hit mass production, and should be in kids' eager paws by October of this year. Unfortunately for said kids, the porn sites that they're so looking forward to browsing will be filtered out through software, meaning the only thing they're going to be pulling is the charging string.
