International travelers now have a tool to help them communicate better. Vocre, a free translation app for the iPhone and iPad, makes it possible for users to communicate with someone in another language. SmartPlanet's Sumi Das gets a demo from MyLanguage CEO Andrew Lauder.

While the app seems interesting, the assumption is that the user will be connected to the net. This isn't always feasible and a better solution would be to have a stand alone app. Imagine traveling where net access isn't available or is prohibitively expensive and one has to employ the translator? I guess the only consolation is seeing 3 1/2 minutes of Suni - though she is looking too skinny lately.
Did anyone notice that outrageous IBM cloud add up front? It suggests the problem was the fisherman were catching too much fish.. as we know all sorts of fish species have or are about to collapse. The solution apparently was to use cloud computing to ensure fisherman caught only enough to meet demand. How ridiculous! Demand far outpaces supply when it comes to fish - the only solution is for humans to eat less fish. However, I can imagine cloud computing could support some sort of global quota management system to support the regulation of rampant over fishing. Perhaps good marketing talent is also in short supply.
Hello, Please think of people who have mainly access to text and cannot have video because their connectivity does not have the necessary "juice". This accounts for over 72% of people over the world. If you want people to read and enjoy the posts, it makes sense to make then accessible to the largest possible population.
This program may be of Great use to public agencies required to provide translation serves to Limited English Proficient clients applying for services and benefits which are subject to Civil Rights legislation. Perhaps it could be given to intake workers at county Social Service Offices.
