Google recently launched a new translation tool for iPhone that turns your device into a free (plus data costs) and very good pocket translator. That got me thinking though -- Google has the technology, and ability to make this application far better than any other pocket translator, and a lot more useful than it is already.

I saw a billboard in Newark, N.J., today for green paint.
Again, sorry for the late updates. Vegas is the kind of place that demands a lot of a person.
Expansion of the enterprise application software (EAS) market in the Czech Republic slowed to 4.5% year on year in 2007, down from 6.4% in 2006. The value of the market exceeded $117 mln in 2007. In 2008, IDC expects the market to regain momentum and expand by a further 10% to reach a value of [...]
You've probably read that China is one of the world's largest producer of greenhouse gases and not really concerned by the environment. In fact, this is not really true. China is involved in many eco-friendly research projects. A recent American Chemical Society's Weekly PressPac briefly describes how Chinese scientists have developed a new recycling method that could transform old computers into useful objects, such as park benches and fences. (scroll to article #4 in the PressPac). The researchers have used fibers and resins of waste printed circuit boards (PCBs) which previously were considered as worthless. As said the lead researcher, 'there is no doubt that the technique has potential in the industry for recycling nonmetallic materials of PCBs.' But read more...
Some organizations stay nimble by receiving frequent software enhancements via continuous updates. But others require a more traditional release cycle that allows them to adapt to the changes.
So, in a stroke, two security researchers (Mark Dowd of IBM and Alexander Sotirov or VMware) at Black Hat have set browser security back 10 years and rendered Vista's security have been rendered useless.
36% of online Democrats have a profile on a social networking site, significantly greater than the comparable figures for both Republicans (21%) and independents (28%), according to Pew Internet Project. Interestingly, despite the pronounced age differences between Obama and Clinton partisans, the percentage of internet users in each group who have a social networking profile [...]
Before I get blasted by the uber-nerds, I'll tell you now. I've been playing with Windows 7 (6519) for a while, and Fiji, the new Windows Media Center TV Pack supposedly for Windows 7 for Windows Vista (ta, MJ) for a good few days.
The Fiji update to Windows Media Center, destined to be part of Windows 7 with a more than likely chance. These screenshots reveal very little about Fiji, because there's very little to report on. As far as I can see, it's exactly the same as it was in Vista.
The remote branch market is evolving into one of the key IT battlegrounds, a new study from IDC shows. According to IDC, worldwide remote branch spending will increase at a 6% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from $19.4 billion in 2007 to $24.2 billion in 2011.
Showing the new and supposed new Fiji feature pack. This is the setup process; nothing special from what I can see, but it's always nice to see how to get started.
I've just read a Linuxworldpresentation, by IBM's Bob Sutor, that left me frothing - it's slyly anti-Sun and, I think, just as fundamentally counter-productive and wrong-headed as their collective response to SCO.
To all you naughty jailbreakers out there: PwnageTool 2.0.
SOA, SOA, everywhere. But who's leading it? Who's paying for it?
Waiting in line for a 3G iPhone is old news these days. The Apple Store in San Francisco is handing out vouchers to eager customers guaranteeing them a phone if they can make it to the store by 6:00 p.
There was something that wasn't quite right about the reasoning TfL gave me for breaking its Oyster contract with Transys. I initially thought it could be something to do with the two outages in two weeks, or that security on the MiFare Classic chip used in the card has been repeatedly broken.
The Commission is inviting satellite operators to compete for the provision of services such as mobile TV and high-speed internet across the whole of Europe
