    Peru's President Alejandro Toledo was at Microsoft Corp. (nasdaq: MSFT - news - people) headquarters on Monday, where he signed a deal to put the Internet into the Andean nation's schools and modernize its government.

    Microsoft pledged support for the plan, which so far has provided about 100 schools with Internet service and teaching tools. The government, with Microsoft's help, aims to increase that number to 5,000 schools by the end of Toledo's term in 2006 and provide high-tech skills training to 6,000 teachers.

    Shouldn't this have been Apple - this all has to do with education and opportunities like this can't be passed. Great PR opportunity.. once has to wonder about apple's marketing campaings. The switch campaing i think is great and is reaching many people. But having poor kids with a ibook at hand would have been such a great splah page for apple.
