Geek Questions

I got together with some geek friends over the weekend and meant to ask them some questions. So instead of emailing them and asking I figure I can get more responses by asking the entire Fox Community.

1) I am considering getting a new cell phone and PocketPC this year. For years I have thought it would be cool to have the integration, but carrying around the PocketPC on my hip is not as comfortable sounding as carrying around a beeper size phone. I know I want the PocketPC to have Wi-Fi wireless so I can browse and do instant messenger type apps. Any recommendations? Any specific brands and models people like? Do you recommend the integration? What features should I be looking on this platform? Has anyone heard any news on things coming down the pike, which might make me wait a bit before deciding? Any accessories you recommend?

2) I am looking for a language translation engine, applet, or Web site. There are a number of non-English writing bloggers who I would like to add to my list, but sadly I am unable to read their language. The only languages I use regularly are English and FoxPro (although one day I hope to “speak” sign language). Does anyone have any recommendations on this? What I would really like to do is copy their text and have it translate the posting so I can read it.

Feel free to post comments here, or if you have some lengthy answers, feel free to email me privately and thanks for your help.
