Found in translation

Link - Apple iPod now has software, Talking Panda, that allows you to download more than 300 commonly used phrases from foreign languages into your iPod--instantly organizing words into categories like shopping, dining, emergency, etc. You can access the needed word in English using the touch-wheel scroll device and then clicking on the sentence you want. The translation appears on the screen and is also recited clearly through your headphones. Downloads are only $10 each but languages are limited to French, Spanish and Japanese. And the software works only on new, third-generation iPods using Mac OS X version 10.2 or later (a Windows version is promised soon though).
