    Pretty daggum cool, if I do say so myself.
    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    That is certainly a "WOW" app.

    I wonder how it does on small print like a menu? All of the samples in the video were large print sign boards so I couldn't get a feel for what would happen with an 8-1/2 by 11 page.

    English to Spanish/Spainish to English only for now, but I'll bet this gains traction immediately and will be available in most languages soon.

    Given the size of the camera / screen on an iPhone, I'm sure it doesn't matter as long as you're close enough.

    I'd be more curious how it handles lower contrast word / background combinations.

    Still... seems unreal.

    I also wonder if it can translate well when aimed at a TV screen or computer monitor.

    I did find some literature online that states it can be used for menus which are usually small and sometimes low-contrast, so it already seems to be a robust solution. As languages are added, I'm sure its usage will become as commonplace as texting . . . . sell your Rosetta Stone stock now!

    That's pretty impressive since it's not only doing a fairly reasonable, or readable translation, but also interpreting what the parameters of a visual TEXT are and the target language.

    This technological avancement speed is going to have peoples minds not having to do very much to get answers for almost any situation and question or desire.

    I don't mind tech advancement at all and my daughter was showing me stuff on her Android tonight that is just fricken amazing to me!!! I wish I had one 30 years ago!

    To be 12 years old now would be fantastic. All the years ahead of you to learn this stuff. Then use what you pick and don't use what you don't care about.
    The droid and ear buds is all they need...Almost. Thank GOD for hormones..LOL

    A friend showed me his 1 Trigabite external hard drive and the storage he has on it. Another amazing tech. feat!!
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies . I am glad to be a part of a select group that tries to take our auditory and visual senses to a higher level: we EXPERIENCE them.... GOT SDA?...GOT SUNFIRE? ...GOT Maggies?

    I'll research the proper term now.


    terabyte....sorry. Showing my computer knowlege again and since I'm not too interested in keeping up with the speed of this comp. tech, I'll need a little spelling help once in a while.

    He said there's 2 terabyte machines that are affordable now.. that's amazing compared to my 60 GB computer I'm on now, isn't it.

    Just teasin' ya man, don't take it personal.

    I remember my first computer had a 540 MB hard drive in it, and that was huge for the day (1992?)

    Now 1000 times that size (500gb) is considered middle of the road.

    It's all good. I plan on looking into getting one of those outboard hard drives soon. With spell check too..
