James Cameron was gracious enough to grant me a few hours of his holiday
time to chat. Some interesting things I picked up:

   - The XO is certified in the USA by Underwriters Limited as a children's
   toy. It is apparently the only laptop in the world that is also certified as
   a toy.
   - XO screens are UV rated to last for about 4 years with 4 hours of
   direct sunlight per day. UV light is a killer for displays, and no other
   screen comes close.
   - If you weren't aware, the Grab key is used for scrolling: hold it down
   and move the trackpad to scroll.

James, feel free to correct me if I'm off the mark.
