I recently watched a documentary on Andrew Carnegie, where they said steel workers commonly worked 12 hour days, 84 hours a week. So it doesn't seem there are any innocent parties in this process. Personally I want everybody-all-at-once to express more simple and human conditions for everyone so we don't destroy the planet or exploit the poor.

I'm also rooting for the $35 tablet, which will be sold in India, to jump-start mobile devices to the next billion internet users.
