To me, getting to run those apps is not such a big deal. I hope the os upgrade improves performance, but Im not banking on it being significant.
Im wondering whether it's possible that performance may actually suffer after the os upgrade; that it might be like trying to run Windows 7 with a Pentium 1 processor.

BORING..... that's like saying "I don't really care about getting presents... I'm just looking forward to being another year older."

Talk to me is a translator app. You speak into it and it translates what you said into the language you chose and plays the translation out loud.

I don't think that will be a 2.0 thing. It will probably be more of a patch update or a 3.0 thing. It would be nice if it was an add on app though.

No, the one I am talking about lets you speak and then it translates what you have said into French, German, Spanish, Italian, etc and speaks the translated phrase back to you.
