INVENTOR SEES WIND-UP COMPUTERS FOR THE DEVELOPING WORLD

By CBR Staff Writer

Trevor Baylis, the inventor of the clockwork radio has now found an enthusiastic supporter for his latest dream of putting a wind- up computer in every mud hut in Africa. Apple Computer Inc is keen to follow up the idea and a spokesperson was quoted in the Guardian as saying the company was very excited about the prospect of working with Mr Baylis. While the idea of bringing information technology to parts of the world that lack even a mains electricity supply is commendable, cynics will see in Apple’s move a recognition that mud huts are probably the only place left where Windows NT hasn’t scored a complete victory.
