Google Glass will SELF-DESTRUCT if flogged on eBay

Locked up

Google have this locked up in the wordings. If you buy teh device and use it then you cannot sell it on. Ifyou buy it as a gift you cannot use it before you would give it to that person. The device can only ever have one owner from new. Unless authorised by Google. So selling USB cable with with free google glasses doesnt work either as it will already be registere. Yes this is wrong and I do not agree with it hence not buying one ever unless they change this. Plus you can only own one device ???

Brown offers free laptops to deprived UK schoolkids

The three r's

Since when did a laptop become essential to teach the three r's. Reading 'riting and 'rithmatic. Also I have seen my daughters school website it looks like it was designed 5 years ago and the teaching tools on it are also laughable.

Surely its easier to teach a kid morales and get them to go to school. This is where the issues may be for under priviledge kids. They are not being taught morales. This is the underlying failure with society today. Its nothing to do with technology.

Other question I have is when these laptops break or the software corrupts who is going to fix them ? More cost to the tax payer im sure. Id love a free laptop for my daughetr as mine is currently with PC world where it has been for 3 months as its still not repaired !
