France, You Will Be The Death Of Me
Eric Lebeau at Zorgloob has officially ruined my life, giving me a reason to jump headfirst into the world of Google Translation Tools. I'm kidding about the ruining my life part, of course. It's just that his blog has exactly the kind of news I'm looking for, and the added "fun" of translating it. Today, he posts about the cover of Technikart magazine (yup, its French too), which is about Google. The best thing is that the cover has a photo of Arnold Schwarzenegger in his bodybuilding prime and the great headline "Google, It Is Stronger Than You!". From the article synopis (which is barely readable in translation), it seems to be a deep, comprehensive look at Google. Now if only I could have the "enjoyment" of translating the whole article.

*UPDATE - Sebism over at the LiveJournal InsideGoogle has posted a translation of the entire cover synopsis. I've posted his translation in the comments.

Here's Sebism's translated synopsis:page 9 Battle: Virginie Despentes vs Jean-Hubert Gailliot ?

Then he says:I'm going to buy it in the afternoon...

I'm hoping he's interested in translating the whole article, but this is pretty darn impressive already.
