There's one in this house I could cheerfully smash to bits. It's a singularly effective barrier to learning for the young. Because of this little techno-gimmick our kids still won't look in a real dictionary. Perhaps it has its uses for the more mature mind.
I would sabotage the evil thing but they'll only replace it when they go back.

I've been using Talking Dict for almost 10 years (now it doesn't talk any more :rolleyes:. Talking Dict, the forerunner of Thailand's electronic dictionary, is a good brand with quite good translation. I would recommend it alongside with Besta Cyberdict which is pretty good as well. Check this website (http://www.thaisupermart.com/list.php?category_id=38) out for online shopping.

For me personally, I found the electronic dictionary is too convenient. It doesn't help me remember the word I just recently checked (same like what tudor&pim said, I suppose). If I am not in a rush or am outside, I usually use a normal dictionary which gives me deeper detail about the word. Besides, it helps me on spelling because my brain keeps repeating the spelling while I am searching for the word.
