Tweetie exchanges currency on the fly

My last post was about the Twitter application Tweetie, and it was such a good buying experience that I have to point out another example of it.

Since I live in Canada and buy things online from the States from time to time, I'm always stuck trying to figure out how much Canadian money I'm actually spending. 

Tweetie inserts a simple user interface enhancement into their order form before checkout that highlights the estimated rate of exchange on your purchase. I'm surprised that most online ordering forms don't employ a similar technique. This makes keeping track of those extra toonies and loonies that much easier.
