I have suggested a $50 educational PC might be more useful 
But this is not going to be of great interest to profit driven 
companies or first world gadget freaks, so I have proposed it could 
also be made inter-operable with the Microsoft Ford Sync car computer 
It could then be used for playing music and video from a mobile 
device as well as operating a mobile phone remotely. This could be 
built into a car dashboard, used in the home or made as a portable 
The ANU IT students might be building a prototype as a group project.
