Hi-tech way to manage food allergies!
Very cool. I saw this in the paper the other day, someone wrote an application for the iphone called Eat Safe! ($2.99 from the app store) for travelers to be able to communicate food allergies in foreign countries! No language cards necessary, just show them the pictures. (I can think of a few servers here who could probably use pictures too. That's the kind way of putting it.)
I don't have an iphone yet, my Blackberry is still chugging along. But customer-designed apps like this make yet another compelling reason to make the jump.
Here's a link to the LA Times article itself.
