Re: Real-time translation of spoken conversation
Have you tried speech to text on a smart phone, any smart phone? Only about a 80% correct translation rate.  Real time "Skype talk" translation?  Please....

Re: Please, no more "posts" added to "post, post PC"

It certainly is a great reckoning to hear the MS CEO "jump" to the next era without really participating in the first era if there is such a second progression.  Since MS pretty much missed the first Post-PC era how do they really know there's a second or just a continued extension of the first? MS's radar has not been very spot on.  I'll believe it when Gartner agrees.

I got problem with my skype in recent time. It's usually spending my message. I'm not sure what's going on with this application.

Talk about a killer app! Imagine being able to talk to anyone, regardless of language barrier. They've been talking about this for decades, now, but if it's real this time - WOW!

It sounds better than acknowledging Microsoft is in the mobile era without much mobile market share.

Please, no more "posts" added to "post, post PC"
Kinda like saying "open open source" or "new neo-conservatives." It's catchy and captures the moment, perhaps, but not the era. This year, post, post PC. Next year, post, post, post PC. We cannot define our place in the history of personal computing by adding "posts" to PC.
