The equipment uses Linux and consumes five times less energy comparing to a common desktop, in accordance with the director of marketing of TWT, Rawlinson Peter Terrabuio. “The equipment was specially created for the schools reality”, said. “We create a cabinet with material resistant to shock,” Terrabuio compares it to a palmtop. “It synchronizes with the schools server and stores only 10 MB in the flash memory”, explains. According to the director, the equipment does not function anymore if it does not connect to the server. “With this, we eliminate the problem with robbery”. (K.A.)

  15. 15. Opinions “The Brazilian software industry is robust and strong. It has the capacity to grow and to conquer the external market, but clearly it has necessities of incentivesquot;...quot;The window of chances in the area of semiconductors for Brazil have closedquot;...quot;If Brazil wants, in fact, to include itself with the great ones of the world-wide economy will have to invest very strong in the knowledge. Education is the base of the generation of jobs and money for a Country“ Craig Barret – CEO INTEL CORP. quot;The social impacts of computer science, conquest of science and the technology, are capable to take to a bigger transformation that of the gas machine. An established society each time more in the exchange of symbolic values, from money to the information, goes to change the axle of the economy, finish with the current concept of work, to value more than everything the knowledge and the learning. In this scene, the excluded ones will be each time more excluded - with the power concentrating in the virtual spheres (with deep control in the real spheres) - not to be that if they implement efficient and massive actions to promote its digital inclusion.“ Carlos Seabra – Scientific Coordinator of the Center of Digital Inclusion and Community Education of the School of the Future - USP.
