In the midst of the OLPC tax deduction discussion commentary, Aaron Peterson altered me to an interesting way to buy the One Laptop Per Child Give One Get One XO laptop for $100: sell your HotSpot access.
Let's do $100 laptop math:
- Buy an XO laptop via G1G1 for $400
- Sell your T-Mobile HotSpot access code for $300
- Your XO laptop final price: $100
Repeat a few hundred times and you've made your bank for Christmas shopping and helped spread technology to children worldwide. In fact, I say that T-Mobile subscriptions will pop up on eBay in 3... 2..
