Heard someone talk about their excitement getting to use Google Translate in their travels abroad.

Problem: they would have their phone translate a question, and the person would go "oh! Blablablahblablablablablahblahblahblahblah."

Google translation is comical at best. I've yet to have it translate japanese with any accuracy, maybe other languages are more accurate... However, screaming into it yields interesting results - one time it translated my yelling into "up yours, jerkface!". not really.

Better than "I'm sorry, I cannot translate for you. Would you like me to search the web?"
