On Thursday FedEx home delivery dropped off a mystery box. I opened it, failed to recognize the logos on the cover sheet I saw on top of the contents, then dug deeper and saw this:
An early Christmas present! Here’s what the unit looks like booted up.
Two initial reactions that point to the almost-finished nature of the OLPC:
- The WiFi network I normally connect to has a WEP password. Those aren’t supported quite yet, though there is a longer workaround that I didn’t try.
- I closed the device and waited for it to go to sleep. In vain. No sleep mode yet.
I’m looking forward to playing more with the unit. It needs a name, too. Will think on that.
