Caught My Eye

Here is a list of news stories that caught my eye this week. Hope you all have a great weekend!

This app for the IPad looks very promising. I’m going to ask Chip to buy it so we can test it. I’ll let you know how it goes.

I'm skeptical about the iASL app, especially because it doesn't (can't) include non-manuals. How can it bill itself as a learn-to-communicate application without such a fundamental feature of the language?

I'm eager for your review!
