A Blog of my students daily thoughts about a different technology subject

March 17th, 2010 Sponge

Do you think the invention of the $10 computer from India that only gets on the internet and does BASIC computer tasks is a good idea or a bad idea? Explain at least 5 reasons why and why do they need something like that in India and not America? (You must do 8 complete sentences or you will get ZERO CREDIT)

  1. it is a bad thing.because it only has internet. you cant put music on your ipod.

  2. i think this is a very good idea only 10 dollars and it does alot of things !

  3. Well its really cheap for the people that need a computer. And I think its a really good idea cause most people dont really get on nothing eles but the internet. And it needs to be in both India and America. Cause we can use a really cheap computer. Instead of bying a two hundred dollors for a good computer.

  4. it is a bad thing.because it only has internet. you cant put music on your ipod. you cant put pictures on it. you cant watch movies. you can only get on the internet. you cant change the back round of your computer. you cant print pictures. it is a good thing that it only cost 10dollars.

  5. I think Its a dumb idea. Its going to be like being off-line. It will limit you to 1-4 ( If your lucky) websites. You wont be able to chat on line with friends. Or family. You will have to set up a Microsoft email to stay connected to friends and family with out waiting days or weeks for a letter in the mail that might not be delivered. Its an okay for the less fortunate. But the fortunate do not want to have limited web sites. At least have a couple social websites. It would be very popular then. It would probably sell out fast to.

  6. I think it is a good idea because not very many people in India get a computer. India is mostly a technology free country. Only a few very rich people in India has a computer that will do basic computer stuff. This way people who are making computer’s and selling them gets what they want and India gets what they want. So it’s a win-win situation. Then the people in India get’s to have a little bit of what America has every day. And the people can learn new stuff like how to type. Or the teacher’s in there school’s can take it easier by typing the name’s of who’s at class and who’s not.

  7. I think it is a good idea because even though it just does the internet and the basic it is still a good deal because there are some children in other countries have no schools no one to teach them. but with the
    XO Computer the students have a chance to learn what they have to learn.

  8. THAT IS COOL AND LITTE KIDES NEED SOME THING LIKE THAT BECAUSE MY LITTE BROTHER LIKE LAST NIGHT I WAS ON IT DOING MY HOME WORK.FOR YOUR CLASS AND HE WANT TO GET ON GAMESSO I THANKE THAT HE CAN MAKE A FORTINE OUT OF THOSE. IF I HAD ONE AND IT WAS GOOD TO PLAY VIDYOW GAMES ON I WOULD DO IT FOR THE SAKE OF BEING BORD. AND HOW DO YOU CHORS IT? THAT IS ONE OF MY QUITINS AND HOW CAN YOU DOWN LOLD MISCE AND OTHER GAMES?

  9. this is pretty good because you could take it any ware but mostly because hes give the computer to kids that need or us it ye is goo because it has internet game to kip the kid entertain in not bore

  10. i Think iT is bad because you may have To do more Than whaT The compuTers aLLow.i Think iT is bad because iT wouLd be a cheap compuTer. aLL cheap compuTers cause probLems. i aLso Think iT is bad because Those Type of compuTers wonT seLL as much as The good compuTers. Those wouLd be bad for TechnoLqy buisnesses aLso.one reason i Think They shouLd be on india Than america because americans have aLoT more work than india does. we americans probabLy depend on TecnoLoqy more Than The peopLe in india. we are more up To daTe in TechnoLoqy Than india if They onLy wanT HTe basic compuTer feaTure. There shouLd be a cerTain Type of compuTers jusT for Them and a separaTe Type wiTh more feaTures for us americans.

  11. i think it is cool cause it cost $10 bucks.

  12. good idea because everyone can afford it.

  13. I think it is a good idea because India has such a big population that it would be hard to put a big computer in such a crammed spot in such a little space. I would just do my work on the computer. not play on it because i do not need to.

  14. IDK

  15. i think its a gr8 idea cuz India iz a poor country nd they dont have lotz uf munay, soe zis iz a way that they can do stuff without it having tu cost alotz uf munay! ( psssst… meh uncle waz born n raized in India! hes full Indian Baybee!!)

  16. i think its a gr8 idea cuz India iz a poor country nd they dont have lotz uf munay, soe zis iz a way that they can do stuff without it having tu cost alotz uf munay! ( psssst… meh uncle waz born n raized in India! hes full Indian Baybee!!) 😛

  17. 😛

  18. I think that it is better because it cost less then normal computer.it does the same things. but its funny looking. but i like the old ones more because i looks better. with the old compters you can do more things. but seens india is poor i think thats good. at least is better then nothing. i still like the normal ones.

  19. I think its a great idea because people from india need that kind of stuff. Plus they dont have alot of money. so they need stuff that are cheap. They also need things like computers for school. so thats what i think. (:

  20. I THINK ITS A GR8 IDEA CUZ INDIAIS A POOR COUNTRY AND THEY DONT HAVE LOTZ OF MONNEY, SO THIS IS A WAY THEY CAN DO STUFF WITHOUT HAVING TO COSTS ALOT OF MUNAY.

  21. I don’t think its a good idea because what you gonna need to get on the computer for and it costs less than a normal computer.

  22. I THINK IT WOULD GET INTERNET BECAUSE IT HAS THE THING ON THE TOP OF THE COMPUTER AND IT ONLY COAST 10 DOLLAR I WOULD LIKE TO BUY ONE

  23. that is a wast of 10$ because you can just look on the internet and it looks really ugly to.

  24. i think peopel in india need thing like use

  25. ithink it would be a good idea for little kids who neeed computers for reserch and stuff. because a lil kid dont really need that much memorie and to do all that stuff the newest high tech computers do. but at thhe same time its not good because it probebly would break easily .

  26. GOOD BECAUSE IT WOULD PREVENT DEATH TO YOUNG KIDS

    LIKE THIS BUNNY

    /)\)
    (X X)
    C( ) ( )

  27. I THINK THEY NEED IT BECAUSE IN INDIA THEY DONT HAVE COMPUTERS AND LAPTOPS. I THINK THE COMPUTER IS A GOOD INVINTION SO THAT STUDENTS CAN LERN MORE AND GET MORE INFORMTION THAT THEY NEED

  28. i think its good india beacuse they dont have much tech stuff

  29. i think that its a good idea. Helps the, learn more. They in india can have a luxerie to learn. Also it helps them see some goods in america and more things like that. Its cheap and is a good learning expirance to learn about things other from book knowladg. Also giving them chances to look around about other countries other than us and them.

  30. I think that it is a great idea because it can help people in africa because if ou win one then one kid in africa gets one so it is a good idea and it is only $10.00 so yes that makes it a even better idea because it is so cheap so a lot of schools are going to be using them because it is cheap so a school can afford a lot of them so they are going to have them so they are going to make a lot of money off school because they can realy use them at elmartary schools because they can put school program then they will use them so yes I think it is a good idea.

  31. i think it is an okay deal. first off u have to think sometimes cheap stuff dont work that good. second of off that it is a good idea because you have internet that allows you to get on. the third reason why is because it looks like it can work and looks kool. and the country is tight on money and it might help to put on $10.00. and the bad thing is tht you cant listen to music unless you go to youtube because it does have internet and you probably cant download your music

  32. Ibeca think its a bad idea use most cheap computerss like that dont always work wright . plus we use technology more than them so it would problably be better for them an not us . most people like technology with more qualities an this new computer dont have it all . It wouldnt be good for people who work at busineses either , you just wouldnt be able to do the things you could do on a regular computer with this one !*

  33. by the way i was not here yersterday i was in ess so i sould not do my sponge yersterday

  34. I think it’s because we have great computers. Third-World countries aren’t as advanced. It’s cheap so everyone can afford it in India. With them being behind us, they won’t get our computers for 30 years or more. America is doing fine on technology. Why shouldn’t they get something we don’t have. It could benefit India. I think they’re great.

  35. These laptops are in India and not America because they need it more than us.We might have people on the.Cheap so most people in India should be able to buy it.These laptop/computers are more needed there we might have unemployment but the most kids their don’t eat every day.They should get it anyway because we are more advanced.

  36. I think it’s both. If you want something that is cheap and easy access it would be good. If you only needed to type something or research stuff well that’s also a reason for you to buy the computer. I think it’s a bad idea because maybe it’s to cheap. It has internet and basic things every computer does. It’s too cheap if it wasn’t that breakable it would be higher if it wasn’t so easily ruined it wouldn’t be as cheap.

  37. i thing that the computer would be a could idea. for people that just need the internet only. but if you need things like word and power point and other word documents.

  38. its a good idea because its cheap and

  39. I think it is a very good idea due to the poorness of most of India’s population. With the available computer for a cheap price of ten dollars, it would be fairly easy to obtain. Even if some of the abilities are limited compared to more modern computers in the U.S…it is still a fair offer for those who do not need the excessive abilities and capabilities. The United States would most likely not “need” to put out an item like this into the public because of the average well-being of each of us economic-wise. We can somewhat easily afford computers that have many extra things than just the basic internet & programs. And the reasons for these extra programs is the placement in which we are technology wise. The United States, as well as many other countries, have released products that are capable with the standard computer. However, India is not as advanced in the technical world. Therefore…the basic programs would be suitable.

  40. i think its a good idea because everyone mainly gets on the internet other than normal software like, word, and desktop processes. most people only get on the internet to get on their e-mail, myspaces, and facebooks. maybe even games or educational websites. so to me its a good idea.

  41. THAT STUDENTS CAN LERN MORE AND GET MORE INFORMTION THAT THEY NEED

  42. i think it would be a bad idea. because the computer is cheap. and most cheap stuff is just crap and useless. so instead of buying a cheap computer you could just go buy a better but expensive computer because they would last longer and be more reliable then a cheap $10 computer.

  43. I think it’s a good idea to make $10 computers because they will become more available. It won’t be fast or as good as the computers we have now but they will at least keep information on many things. It could be used to keep information about schools like grades and things like that. This will make more “third world” countries have more access to the public. We might be able to help them more through the internet. If a poor “third world” family is given a computer it will benefit them. If a child gets sick they might find the cure through the internet. They might also have a bigger voice in their government and be able to call help if something happens. I think this will benefit most of the world.

  44. I think it isnt a good idea. Because yeah people get on the internet. But people also get play games. And sometimes people have to type things and save it on computer. So if you only have a computer that gets on the internet you arent going to get to do things things that you really need to be done. And you are going to have a lot of vireses.

  45. i think it is a good idea because when people buy labtops or computers people worry more about paying the cable bill, or the water bill. And after people buy the computer/labtop they no longer have any money.
    i think that they need something like that in india and not america because,
    1.not many kids there have something fun to do
    2.we have enough tecnology
    3.kids here dont do anything but play on the computers
    4.kids dont care about their education
    5.their kids dont have much for their education.

  46. i thank it would bad because that is really cheap. but i thank it is also good because. some people cant get the high one so they can buy the cheap one. but they might brack because they are really cheap.but me i would not get it because. i can get on on my phone. are just get on my mamas lad top. are just dont on at all you no what iam sayin. but it might be good for some one gettin the first computer. like a ten year old.

  47. it is a bad thing.because it only has internet. you cant put music on your ipod. you cant put pictures on it. you cant watch movies. you can only get on the internet. you cant change the back round of your computer. you cant print pictures. it is a good thing that it only cost 10dollars.I thank it would bad because that is really cheap. but i thank it is also good because. some people cant get the high one so they can buy the cheap one.

  48. Its pretty good idea. because people that dont have much money can buy it. its good for doing homework. now you dont need to buy a laptop. they should have them at home. but its bad because you cant put music. you can put internet to do work. here we can afford more stuff.

  49. i think its a bad idea because who want a computer that only has basic computer task and only has internet.and its really cheap and wrong.it is a good thing that it only cost 10dollars but it can at least have some stuff on it.people dont always want to get on the internet sometimes people have to type things.

  50. i think it is a good idea because they don’t have a lot of money. They don’t even get to really watch t.v. so this is a really good idea to me. The people in America don’t need it because we have more money. We are a wealthy country then them. so we don’t need it. This is a really good thing for India. this is just what they need. this is why they should have it and we should not.

  51. good because india is very poor and they need some technology

  52. I THINK IT IS A GOOD IDEA FOR LITTLE KIDS NOT ADULTS OR TEEN ADULTS CAUSE SOMETIMES THEY NEED TO GET ON MORE THAN JUST INTERNET CAUSE SOMETIMES THEY HAVE A FACE BOOK AND SOMETIMES A MY SPACE BUT I DON’T THINK IT IS A GOOD IDEA FOR ADULTS I THINK IT IS A GOOD IDEA FOR LITTLE KIDS LIKE FROM 3 GRADE AND LOWER.

  53. i think its a good idea because India is a poor country and is a better way to find and research information for homework. and they can afford the cpmputers.

  54. I think its a good idea because if u don’t have a lot of money then u can buy this for cheap.its good for doing homework.now you dont need to buy a laptop. they should have them at home. but its bad because you cant put music.

  55. i thank it is a good idea. it don’t cost a lot. they just need it. and they need to know what is going on around the wold.and they need to know the new technology. so they need to get them.

  56. i think that it would be bad because it is cheap and it will cause problems but then it is good because if people dont have the money to buy the higher and better ones then they could get them so i quess it is okayy.

  57. i think its a bad idea because who want a computer that only has basic computer task and only has internet.and its really cheap and wrong.it is a good thing that it only cost 10dollars but it can at least have some stuff on it.people don’t always want to get on the internet sometimes people have to type things.good because India is very poor and they need some technology.The people in America don’t need it because we have more money. We are a wealthy country then them. so we don’t need it. This is a really good thing for India. this is just what they need. this is why they should have it and we should not.

  58. i dont think itz a bad thing. the reason i say daT iz because it only has internet and da internet is usable. i like to u se it all da time. it might be cheap but u can use for da internet. dats jus my opinion.in plus i know dat people would buy it all da time because people use da internet most of da time. i think it iz goin to become a big hit. cuz sometime people use all dat microsoft word, windows, and all dat. i dont use it like dat cuz its borin and bull. well dats all i really got to say about da xo computer. in plus itz a beta upgraded computer 2 use. in plus it only has internet which iz cold as heck. well c u later nd holla at chu. i got more buy now. i am goin to try to buy cuz it looks cool to me. LoLz smiley.

  59. because its helpful to people.and you wont have to pay a high bill.and because kids dont have nothing to do they can get on the computer.and most kids only get on the computer.and its like cheap.computers here or laptops cost alot of money.and because kids can get info.thats why i think its good

  60. ~*i think that the $10.00 computer is dumb because if u buy a computer from best buy or Walmart then u got to pay like 200 dollars or more*~

  61. i think dat tha ten dolla computer is a good thing.it is a good thing cause its cheap.its good for kids who hav nothin else to do.most pl dont have enough money for a computer.some kids dont hav toys or anything lik dat cause they cost too much. internet basically is wat ppl mostly get on tha computer for.many ppl would luv to hav dis computer cause dey dont hav internet on their high piced computer. this is good for india cause they hav a low economy.ppl in india cant afford highpriced computers any way.our economy is not low.this would be bad for us because tha manufacturers wouldnt be makin enough money.then we would get nothin bac.dats juss mi opinion tho.

  62. I think that that computer would sell the most because. its cheap so it would sell more in the toph econamy. and you could by it for kids. or it could be a inexspensive gift.

  63. i think it is a good idea. because it is cheep.and all i do is get on the internet.

  64. i think the $10 computer is a great idea. because India doesn’t have a lot of money. and lets face it America is the master of tech. kids can afford it. adults can afford it. pretty much anyone with enough money. it can go on the internet. there is so much you can do a $10 computer.

  65. ok i dont think this is a good idea.whats the point of it. i dont see why you wou ld want a computer that only has basic things on it and probably limited things you can do. cheap or not it is dumm. once people start buying them they will relize that it is worhtless and makes no sense to have it. would you really want something that hardly has anything on it and limits you to what you can do. i wouldnt so agian why buy something that will most likely be worthless to you. i dont know any body that would buy it because even though it is cheap it hardly has nothing on it and you wont have hardly any storage space and all the things you need on a computer!!!!!
