3) iPhone App Makes Your Language Classes Obsolete

iphoneOK… I’m joking in the title, but this iPhone app does look interesting. Here’s an app featured at lifehacker.com that snaps a picture, then does a translation. WinMobile won’t be far behind, I bet. My winMobile phone already scans business cards, imports the picture into a OCR program, scans and lets you make any corrections needed (none usually needed if the light was good and the font was fairly conservative), then imports the address into your contact list, guessing the correct fields for everything most of the time. So Arabic won’t be far behind. OK… maybe it won’t come before Christmas. But once again, you iPhone types beat us to the punch again! :-) (Thanks for the tip, K in N. Africa.)
