    Word Lens sounds pretty useful for those times where you feel like you're lost in translation in foreign countries, quite a great app to have in handy.

    Google Body Browser - anything that I can say is WOW;)

    However for older computers - this application is a kill shot.

    Intel Celeron 1,61Ghz, 2GB RAM, Win XP Sp 3 - does not stand a chance against it:))

    Cheers.

    Nice list. Amplify is one of the best ways to microblog and the conversations are great. Parrotfish makes me spend lots of time on the new twitter. It's awesome. Thanks for the other suggestions too.
