    Pupils browse porn on donated laptops

    ABUJA (Reuters) - Nigerian schoolchildren who received laptops from a U.S. aid organization have used them to explore pornographic sites on the Internet, the official News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reported Thursday.

    NAN said its reporter had seen pornographic images stored on several of the children's laptops.

    "Efforts to promote learning with laptops in a primary school in Abuja have gone awry as the pupils freely browse adult sites with explicit sexual materials," NAN said.

    A representative of the One Laptop Per Child aid group was quoted as saying that the computers, part of a pilot scheme, would now be fitted with filters

    So parents used to have to look under the kids mattress for their playboy stash under the covers but now they have to look into the computers hard drive to see what's in the folders.

    At least they aren't downloading plans to make bombs.

    I never knew there was Nigerian porn.

    This opens up a whole new world of possibilities for me.

    At least they can use them.

    When they first got them the school didn't have enough electricity to re-charge the batteries.
