Attention all Latin Nerds

Just in case you didn't know, there is a Lewis & Short ap for the iPhone/iPad. The ap is $3.99; the dictionary itself is $255. You can get an iPad for about $400. Now you have to get one, don't you--it would almost be fiscally irresponsible not to!And don't forget the chiropractor fees you'll save; I remember taking Reggie Foster's intensive Latin class in Rome, and lugging that blasted dictionary up and down the Gianiculum, across St. Peter's Square, and on the 40 bus. How nice it would have been to have it all on a iPad!
