Expensive computers can be hacked.
The more you pay, the fancier the components that allow additional attacks. KISS Keep it Simple Stupid.
Cheap simple computers can do most of what people need to do on the internet without the bloatware that makes hackers and crime possible. Free software is better – “open source” if done right.
Next Thing Co. recently announced a $9 micro-PC shipping in 2016.
The secret to Chip’s low price is one part business plan and one part component costs.
To cut down the price, Next Thing went with a ARM-based 1GHz processor from Allwinner, one of the largest suppliers of processors for low-cost devices.
To keep the price so ridiculously low, Next Thing also plans to order Chip components in large quantities and thus get discount pricing from suppliers.
It also has built-in 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0
microUSB port for power,
camera sensor support.
composite connection for video,
adapters available for HDMI and VGA.
