.... I believe you (we) still have to see the image of an "ear" and an application that will translate the answer of the foreign person into the asker's language, while the asker sticks his/her phone to the side of his head. Very funny indeed, but I am afraid that what they have now is the solution to only half of the problem.

Smart applications to make people dumber? What ever happened to learning the language, or at least a few phrases, of the country/countries one is going to visit?

Another funny thing worth seeing is the results of crowdsourcing translation in Facebook, posted by a colleague: http://www.proz.com/forum/lighter_side_of_trans_interp/153811-something_hilarious:_translator_changes_edit_ad_page_title_of_facebook_into_i_am_stupid.html
