A Cool New Way to Learn

Picture this: I'm working in various applications on my computer — writing an email, browsing my iTunes library, reading RSS feeds, stalking people on Facebook — and, every few minutes, a little notification appears to teach me Spanish...or the periodic table of elements. It's learning without studying, and they call it Popling — "a website + desktop app for people who want to learn, but lack motivation." I call it awesome. I'm totally going to learn Japanese. (Slovak isn't available...yet.)

Watch the screencast below to see Popling in action:
