Re: Prediction 1 Dec 21, 2011

"Small amounts of energy created by actions like people walking on water ..." that really grabbed my attention!

And then I saw it was the much more boring "Small amounts of energy created by actions like people walking or water moving through pipes ..."

Learning other languages Dec 23, 2011

Powerful mobile devices, capable of precise language translation, will belong to 80 percent of the world’s population.

I am curious to know how that will affect second and third language learning. Will it make people eager to learn other languages, once they discover them, thereby enriching humanity? Or will it make people lazy and dependent on their machine?
