We’ve all used machine translators at one point or another. They’re fast, free, and simple to use. However, the quality of the results are oftentimes not quite up to par. There are even websites devoted to the completely off the wall results that can come from using a machine translator. No matter how great machine translators are at providing a fast and easy solution for translation, the truth of the matter is that machines are not able to process all of the intricacies, variables, and creativity of human language accurately.
You’ve been told that it is rude to have your cell phone at the dining table, whether you are dining with your family, or having a dinner date with your partner.

Facebook Stalking App
Using your phone to Facebook ‘friend’ a person you’ve just met is a frustrating experience –carefully spelling out names, looking through the photo list to find yourself, etc. Well, Facebook appeared to find a solution in the form a new app — Find Friends Nearby. An app that uses GPS to let you select from a list of nearby Facebook users. TechCrunch was tipped off this past weekend to the new app — initially known as “Friendshake”. The app had been quietly rolled out with no announcement. The app seemed like a useful tool for exchanging contact information with one or multiple people with minimal effort. So why did Facebook kill it only a few hours later?
I wrote last week about life without the internet and what it would be like if it were to go down for 24 hours. In an ironic twist, the FBI warns of a real malware threat that may result in widespread Internet outages this coming Monday, July 9th.
