    I may consider Apple the "scum of the earth" but I have to admit the iPhone has some sweet apps. More info on it here:

    It looks like a really cool concept. Little less stunning in practice though. It comes free with a word reverser and word eraser. The translation packs are $4.99 in-app purchases.

    I can't get the reverser or eraser to stay steady. All the words keep blinking in and out, even when I set the phone down. It looks like the app's translation capabilities are limited to giant signs for now.

    Still a cool peak into how things will be in a few years once the technology irons out.

    I figured it probably wasn't as stunning as advertised, but didn't imagine it was that bad for that price lol.
