Intel Pledges 1500 Laptops, WiFi For Hurricane Katrina Relief

Intel Pledges 1500 PCs, Wireless Access Points, Technical Support For Hurricane Katrina Disaster Relief Efforts

I hate to just link to/quote from a press release, especially from my own employer, but I’m glad to see some tech help (in addition to the $1 million contribution), after I wondered about what the tech world could do to help:

Intel Corporation today announced it is coordinating the donation of 1,500 laptop personal computers to the American Red Cross for distribution to shelters in support of Hurricane Katrina disaster relief efforts. In addition, Intel will donate 150 wireless Internet access points to enable wireless local area connectivity in all permanent shelters and is providing fifty Wi-Fi transmitters for installation in the New Orleans downtown and airport area.
