By Nicholas Negroponte HAVE you ever wondered why the astonishing growth in computing power has not made PCs a whole lot cheaper? Or easier to use? Or both these things? Since 1965, the power of computers as measured by the number of transistors per microchip has doubled every 18 months, just as Gordon Moore said it would. By the same exponential formula, a laptop that cost $3000 in 1990 could cost $6 today. But you don’t see any $6 laptops, and despite the hike in processing power,
