Bridging the Digital Divide in BRIC
Off the AP wires yesterday, it was announced that "Dell unveils new PCs targeting emerging markets." While the computers are designed for small-business users, it is one more way the [inter]net is being cast wider, and thereby, health messages can reach more people via this medium. The particular emerging markets Dell is focusing on are Brazil, Russia, India, and China, a.k.a. BRIC. After this computers will still yet become more and more affordable for countries beyond BRIC.
