Ethiopian kids hack OLPCs in 5 months with zero instruction

Dvice - What happens if you give a thousand Motorola Zoom tablet PCs to Ethiopian kids who have never even seen a printed word? Within five months, they'll start teaching themselves English while circumventing the security on your OS to customize settings and activate disabled hardware. Whoa.

The story is too old to be commented.

All I can say is - Brilliant Kids!! Think if they can get proper instructions, or guided to those things.

This is awesome. For the Price of a teacher's yearly salary, you can just buy kids these and they can teach themselves.
