电子词典杂谈--推荐Mdict。英文版,本Pan原创

各位老大,
下面的文章是我练笔写的,请大家多多指教。
现在市场上以“电子词典”为主要功能的PDA为多,但没有一个能在功能与价值上与Mdict相提并论。但Mdict只在玩家中才被认可,知道的人太少了。这也是我为什么写这个文章的一个初衷。一台支持Mdict的二手PPC也比市场上任一款价格不菲的学生电子词典划算得多。
如果你爱Mdict,请多多向你的亲戚朋友介绍Mdict.
Pan.

Hi folks,

I know many of you are just like I am -- struggling for the dream of this langua
ge for all these years, with hardly a good language environment.  Among all the
secret treasures we may have, perhaps the varied dictionaries are the most helpf
ul and treasurable to us.  And many are probably ready to name a few upon seeing
this title: Oxford, Longman, American Heritage, Cambridge, blah blah.

These are, indeed, treasures of knowledge; and each of them alone is enough to m
ake you feel as if you were in heaven.  Oxford Advanced Bilingual, precise yet e
asy-to-understand interpretations and abundant examples; Longman, long seen one
of the most useful, prestigious tools for English learners; Collins Cobuild, mos
t suitable English-English monolingual dictionary for beginners, itself a good r
eading stuff; American Heritage, adopted by many best-selling for-student eletro
nic dictionaries for its second-to-none accuracy in interpreting ....

Their printed versions weigh like hell, each is worth a fortune and are individu
ally or collectively, sure to grace your messy study.  Expensive as they may be,
the money spent is well worthwhile.  The problem is, however, many of them are
not available to everyone, even though you already have the cash ready in your p
alm.  It would be an immeasurable loss if you don't have access to these oceans
of human knowledge.  

Miracles occur in this computerized era.  Computer version of Kingsoft Dictionar
y is a household name and an indispensable among English sufferers.  A Windows w
ithout Kingsoft is beyond our imagination!  The market sees dozens of Personal D
igital Assistants as well, most of which are actually mere electronic dictionari
es.  And they are unbelievably popular among parents and "the future of the nati
on".  Nobody tells how much money the business is worth, but I am sure the figur
e would be astronomical.  Even the most well-known Canadian cross-talker in Chin
a, that forever smiling Dashan, has a finger in the pie of a product named "E-10
0", which, the product itself, is unfortunately a disaster.  Another hit name is
"Good Memory", which is another version of E-100.  The list of other PDAs, trad
itional ones or brand-new ones, are endless.  Those names heard most often inclu
de home made ones such as "Wen Qu Xing" (I am sure you know of this, David.  :D
), "Nuo Ya Zhou", "Bu Bu Gao", and MingRen; hybrids such as Hao Yi Tong and Kuai
Yi Tong also abound in the competitive arena.  

These modern devices all strive to make time with would-be users by showing off
how many kinds of dictionary they have and how many entries each embraces.  Some
even integrate a not-that-bad mp3 player with a capacity of 128MB or 256 MB mem
ory.  Now that's a fascinating idea.  Some adopt a colored display, which is dre
adfully attractive to those "fledgling" lads.  They are far from inexpensive, th
ough.  Hold your wallet tight until you have pored over their upsides and downsi
des!  And think twice and make comparisons before you succumb to their snow jobs
-- as there can be smartly set traps around.  One thing you should always keep
in mind is that those radiant TV celebrities can endorse any products only if th
eir palms are scratched with RMB!  Use your judgement.

What was that said  All that glitters is not gold.  And remember, real treasure
s never pursue limelight.  Mdict, a free software based on Windows Mobile device
s such as PPCs and Smartphones, is indeed such an unnamed solitory.  Not only ha
s it collected all the above mentioned dictionary gems, it has enrolled what the
y call the most invaluable thing in this bloody world, WiKi Encyclopedia, Chines
e version.  English version can be had only if someone's willing to do the conve
rting job.  

Think about having all these dictionaries, thesauri and encyclopedias with you a
ll the time wherever you go.  Imagine looking up a word in a wide array of dicti
onaries all at a time by a few screen tappings.  Envisage having handy, instant
references when doing your paperwork.  Now all you need is a Windows Mobile powe
red gadget.  If you are lucky, used PPCs or smartphones are a good alternative,
too.  Palm versions are said to be as good as Windows Mobiles, but well, that's
not my cup of tea.  Perhaps you are willing to contribute to this piece to make
it completed.  

To make you have a more "tangible" concept about what Mdict is like, follow me a
nd go to this link:

Does this sound alluring to you  Now our dear friend Neil, the dedicated Englis
h lover from English-speaing background, has become a real Mdict worshiper no le
ss than I am, maybe you'll be the next.  Welcome!

呵呵,Rayman过奖了。其实我想写这个文章很长时间了,一直难以静下来写。这次终于完成了。希望能有更多的英语爱好者知道Mdict。
事实上我几个外国朋友知道了Mdict后都非常喜欢。。。
