What's next microwave pizza?

The latest reform brought to the Cuban people by President Raul Castro.

The first legalised home computers have gone on sale in Cuba, but a ban remains on internet access.

This is the latest in a series of restrictions on daily life which President Raul Castro has lifted in recent weeks.

Maybe IBM still has some of their PCjr warehoused somewhere. They could make a killing in Cuba right now, that's if any Cuban people can affprd tp buy a PC..

Hat tip- Dr. Taylor at Poliblog who writes- "So, basically, the late-1980s have arrived! (Sans Prodigy, Compuserve and your local BBS, of course)." Can cellphones and microwaves be that far away?

The ignoramii of the ruling class will soon send a massive shockwave into the Cuban lumpenproletariat causing an embrace of Western idealism and culture. What a shame, a once promising Marxist regime failed so miserably.

I know a Cuban who left Cuba in 1999/2000, he had a computer and internet access.
