12 Days of iTunes Christmas starts early with Kylie Minogue

Apple has started their 12 days of Christmas early, notifying European subscribers that they can right now pick up Kylie Minogue - A Christmas Gift, which consists of 3 free songs.

Interestingly, the Official 12 days of iTunes website doesn't show this special promo, and "A Christmas Gift - EP" can't be found on iTunes, so this seems to be a app/email exclusive.

They admit it's not perfect; it can't handle handwriting or stylized fonts, and gives more gist than precise translation, but again -- camera based translation, future, gobsmacked. Even if it's only a tech demo, even if it only works for comedic effect,
