There are any number of really good reasons why you would want to turn speech into text. Gotta dash off a quick message to someone but you're already late. You're in the car and need to reply to something but there's no good place to pull over. Etc. and on and on.
But what about the reverse? Are there just as many really good reasons why you'd want to turn text into speech?

If you've waited an entire minute for Outlook to open, or fought with Mail's screen-spanning interface, you might have longed for a better way. Light, flexible Sparrow could be your answer.

If you'd like to spend your remaining years enduring similar ball-rolling-based sadism, you're in luck. Crescent Studios has brought us Gears, a game about rolling a sphere through ludicrous concoctions of gears, pipes, ramps, moving platforms, and such.
Radium isn't an “app” in the usual sense. Instead it inhabits your menu bar for quick access to your favorite streaming radio stations. Just do a search and blammo, your favorite station is playing. The app features an equalizer that helps deal with the quality of internet streams, and the History feature has iTunes Store links to the songs you listened to.
