Further afield, July saw silicon.com catching up with the progress of Computer Aid's Zubabox internet cafés.
Computer Aid International has delivered three of these solar-powered cyber cafés housed in old shipping containers so far and is now appealing for organisations to sponsor 10 more to go to other rural communities in sub-Saharan Africa and to be used in disaster zones.
Pictured above is the ZubaBox cyber café recently delivered to the village of Chikanta in Zambia.
To learn more about the ZubaBoxes, see The solar-powered internet cafés connecting rural Africa.
