Ultra-low cost revolution Part 1: Android multi-user and cultural impact
0. phoneArena posted on 03 Aug 2012, 12:46
Recently, there were some bits of code found in Android that seem to point to the system allowing for multiple users on a single device. The immediate thought of many (including us) upon hearing that was that it would be great for tablets, but not so much for phones...

A revolution that would be in World History textbooks in the near future.

Personally, I think its great they are getting access to low cost communication options. However, shouldnt companies like Google be helping these communities in Africa, by, I dunno, wells, irrigation, agriculture, so that they can have FOOD and WATER, and education, before throwing tablets at them. Soon enough, Africa will be flooded with cellphones and tablets, and people trying to eat them because they are starving to death. What's this world come to?
