A cell phone is a kind of a very, very long dog

"You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles."
Einstein said that.
He couldn’t define cell phones.
If he had, he would have used a more specific comparison, something like:
"A cell phone is a kind of a very, very long dog. If you pull his tail in Europe he can bite a Chinese or an Australian or an American or a North Korean.
It just depends on the number you dial."
And since not long you have also an additional feature: The Remarkable Voice Translation for the iPhone.
It is a new tool for the iPhone to enable speech to speech translation. What this means is that you could speak directly into the phone in English and have the phone speak back to you in any language.
Including Arabic, which happens to be the most used language for now, since it was used in Iraq to give language assistance to soldiers from an iPhone or Blackberry.
Now a day you have so many iPhone Accessories that you do not know what to choose (why not choosing ALL?)
What I find particularly useful is the Bluetooth headsets, which allow you to be completely independent with your hands.
And, believe me, this is VERY IMPORTANT for an Italian, since when we talk, we usually talk with our hands...
