Ethiopian kids get tablets, hack NORAD

Evan Ackerman for Dvice:

What happens if you give a thousand Motorola Zoom tablet PCs to Ethiopian kids who have never even seen a printed word? Within five months, they’ll start teaching themselves English while circumventing the security on your OS to customize settings and activate disabled hardware. Whoa.

OK, just kidding about the NORAD part. Regardless, it’s a pretty remarkable story. Just don’t read the comments, most of them totally miss the point.
