    I am so amazed by this that I can't even think of something snarky. Instead of giving out laptops (in this case solar-powered tablets) to schools and have kids get instructed in their use, they dropped off a bunch of sealed boxes and waited to see what happened. Well what happened was the kids taught themselves and their knowledge exploded with incredible speed.

    They should hand out tablet computers in South Florida.
    Everyone would be speaking English in, oh, seven years?
