Mobile App team bottle rocket borrowed an XO for a few months to play with it and test out their apps on it. Â They recently sent it back along with a donation from their amazing staff. Â Their founder Calvin Carter writes:
â€œRecently I was having dinner with a client. Â [H]e had his OLPC laptop with him. The waitress recognized the laptop and started asking him questions… While my friend was proudly demonstrating the newest model to her, I was reminded of one of Bottle Rocketâ€™s core beliefs: exceptionally innovative technology not only enhances the way we do things â€“ it redefines the way we live our lives. I realized that these laptops can truly change lives. What a perfect way for Bottle Rocket to give back. The next day, four laptops were on their way to tease out the imagination and ambition of their new owners.â€
That’s a great photo! Â I wonder when some of their apps are going to appear alongside Batovi‘s in the Sugarlabs Activity center…
thanks for sharing it for us…
