Cuba residents get their first computers

Posted by Media Outrage on May 3, 2008

This is a very interesting story. Cuba just received a mass influx of computers that were made available to the public yesterday. So yes Cuba residents have never had computers which was a complete shock to us. But the thing is that most of the residents will not be able to afford them. We also found out that the country not too long ago received their first cell phones that were made available to the public.

In this day and age of digital everything, it is completely mind boggling to imagine entire countries and nations that are devoid of technology. We understand these nations exist but when you live in a country that has the best of everything, your mind tends to forget that this lavish lifestyle is not being enjoyed everywhere. We say everyone who wakes up each morning especially if you live in America should have a heart full of gratitude for having access to the abundance of opportunities. We know that Oprah Winfrey said years ago that each night she takes some time to quietly reflect on her many blessings and say thank you. We all take so much for granted until you see the conditions that others actually live in. So take a little time to be grateful.

Bill Gates has a message for black people!!!

Posted by Media Outrage on November 28, 2007

Bill Gates

Via Eurweb:

“Apparently prompted by a recent study showing that less than 10 percent of the graduates of computer science programs are Black, Microsoft founder and Chairman Bill Gates last week urged African Americans to become computer technology professionals.

Gates was speaking last Friday at a conference sponsored by the National Society of Black Engineers at Microsoft’s headquarters in Redmond, Washington.

The study prompting Gates’ comments was released by the National Science Foundation. It showed that fewer than 6,000 of the 52,500 computer science graduates in the United States in 2004 were Black.

Gates said the nation is facing a shortage of technology professionals.

“The United States is not turning out from any group as many of the great engineers as there will be jobs for.” He added, “Blacks are particularly underrepresented in the tech industry.”

The Black engineers group named Microsoft the top employer for Black engineers. Meanwhile, Gates said Microsoft would partner with NSBE to enable it to hire and promote more Black engineers.”

That’s a good message from Bill Gates. And we are all aware that there is a ton of money in the technology sector.
