Believe it or Not. Cubans Are Now Allowed to Have Computers!


Cuba's Communist leaders finally figured out there are normal people in the world with computers. The decided to let their people legally buy a computer. Here, from Wired Magazinge "Cubans are getting wired. The island's communist government put desktop computers on sale to the public for the first time Friday, ending a ban on PC sales as another despised restriction on daily life fell away under new President Raul Castro.A tower-style QTECH PC and monitor costs nearly US$780 (505 euros). While few Cubans can afford that, dozens still gawked outside a tiny Havana electronics store, crowding every inch of its large glass windows and leaving finger and nose prints behind (see picture above)."
