      It’s time to outsource your R&D to entrepreneurs!

      It's time to outsource your R&D

The person saying this was the chief operating officer of his company. I will tell you who in just a moment.

      The notion makes a lot of sense.

        Seven months ago, the notion of a 1GHz, fully functional computer selling for under $10 would have seemed crazy. But back then, no one had seen PocketCHIP, the $9 portable computer from China, or the $5 Pi Zero, from Wales; the world’s cheapest computers.

        Then suddenly last week, before you could blink, all available inventory of these devices was sold out everywhere, within hours.
