BigHal chat translator

This looks like a nifty product: BigHal, an automatic translator that plugs into your IM chat application, like AIM, Yahoo Messenger, GoogleTalk, or ICQ.

It has a pack of different languages installed. The person on the other end of the chat doesn't have to have the software for it to work.

I can picture some very interesting international group chats happening with the help of this tool!

Well, this turns out to be vaporware; a product that doesn't exist. They refunded my 10 bucks the very next day with an offer of a free t-shirt. So it's a "market test" to see if people will pay for the application before they develop it.

Too bad because I was pretty excited about having such a slick program - is it too good to be true?
