Court grants Filipino hacker probation after guilty plea
Although Giner was sentenced to serve one to two years of imprisonment and pay a fine of 100,000 pesos, he applied for probation. The court granted him this during Wednesday's arraignment, which means Giner will not go to jail. He is required, however, to report to a probationary officer on a regular basis.
The conviction of Giner is now considered a landmark case, as he is the first local hacker to be convicted under section 33a of the E-Commerce Law or Republic Act 8792, according to DoJ Secretary Raul Gonzalez and Chief State Prosecutor Jovencito Zuño.
MIT's $100 Laptop
The machines, which will run on a version of Linux will be Wi-Fi and cell phone-enabled, will include four USB ports, and will be able to share a single internet connection with similar machines.
Negroponte said the idea is that governments will pay roughly $100 for the laptops and will distribute them for free to students.
