The electronic dictionary market seems to be happily stuck in the 1990's, alongside CD-burners and laser discs.

Side note: amazing how many times I have seen 'TOEIC' improperly spelled. Even in presentations by TOEIC authors.

I took a look at a Japanese friend's iPhone Japanese/English dictionary app, and was amazed at the quality and functionality the developers have packed into it--easily matching what all but the most specialized of these stand-alone electronic dictionaries provide.
