RayTomes writes "The Obama administration has provided a loan guarantee of $737 million to construct the first large-scale solar power plant that stores energy and provides electricity 24 hours a day, 7 days a week." This solar power project, a heliostat rather than a photovoltaic system, with a molten salt system to store power as heat for times when the sun isn't shining, will be constructed in Nevada and, says the article, is expected to create "600 construction jobs and 45 permanent positions."

According to the Google blog site, the new Google Translate iPhone app accepts voice input for 15 languages, and—just like the previously available Google Translate HTML5 web app for iPhone — users can translate a word or phrase into one of more than 50 languages. For voice input, users press the microphone icon next to the text box and say what they want to translate."
