This is the Kind of Thing People Say About "Disruptive Innovations"

Teemu Leinonen (via Stephen):

I am afraid that the Aakash design team did not have anyone thinking about the pedagogy. The main aim has been to deliver a cheap tablet. Maybe that is what is needed, but from research (or innovation) point of view, I do not find it very interesting. Aakash is just a cheap tablet.

Not that "disruptive innovations" are inherently better than "sustaining" ones. People like their new iPhones!
