It is a grownup with a childish and selfish mindset. That he may disagree with rules or requests is something he may do at home. There are people we care about their health.

This person need mental support because something is really wrong with him.

Posted in: What’s it like to shop at FamilyMart’s first 'unmanned' convenience store in Japan? See in context

Unmanned stores concepts are nice and it may be convenient but most people still prefer to have some human interaction. But if products are a x factor cheaper because there are no extra cost as payments for employees it may be competing in the future.

10 years ago most people where not found of online shopping but nowadays online shopping is huge and still increasing.

Next step delivery by robots.

Posted in: LG becomes first major smartphone brand to withdraw from market See in context

Apple was not the first smartphone in the world. The Nokia 9100 introduced in 1996 was the first so called smartphone. Although the term smartphone didn't exist. It was called a PDA.

Most people think apple was the first smartphone but apple just introduced a new mobile in a good moment with apps.

Touchscreen already exist before apple.

Apps where before apple just downloadable programs.

Now every one is copying and improving each other technology because there is not much to improve at this moment. Foldable phone are the next step but that may take sometime and is now more for the early adapters.

Posted in: LG becomes first major smartphone brand to withdraw from market See in context

Nokia missed the boat and is losing the market. Also Nokia is not Nokia anymore. It is generic and has no unique ups.

Currently sony mobile market share for mobile is also in a nosedive worldwide market. Although the market share is second place (9%) after apple.

But only japan market is not making enough profit for sony mobile.

Many chinese brands are doing better due the pricing and features you get.

LG was one of the pioneers of the Android operating system, collaborating with Google on the Nexus smartphone line and producing some of the best camera and display technology in the category’s early days. Now LG lost the market share because they did not innovate and therefore not competitive. LG tried to change the direction but were to late and other Chinese brands in the lower segment had better price value. Blackberry was also one of the good example. Was popular for a while under business people than teenagers because of ping untill whatsapp or other applications came.

Sorry for Apple fans but this will also definitely happen with Apple also.

There is no mobile company which keeps going for a long period.

It is sad to read that this has to happen. He is making a lot of issues for people, especially the victims he put the address details.

He should just move on. Now he makes a foul of himself. There is still a privacy law in Japan which he clearly doesn't respect. He should be mentioned on the website as the greatest foul.

I'm really worried that japan as a modern nation will never change.

Posted in: Kofu City official gives speech telling new employees to 'play around' to fix birth rate issue See in context

This is so Japanese. Always they try with strange methods to increase birth rate instead solving the main issue for the birth decline.

There were already have been comments in the pass such as woman are baby making machines.

I guess Japan has a long way to go to solve this issue.

Most women who get pregnant have to leave the company because often the women has to take care of the child. The payment is lower than men. Just playing around is not a solution.

First day at work.

How was your day?

I was told to play around and make babies.

There is no respect from this company.

Again nonsense replies from people who blame China. We all know pollution is high in china but that china get to be blamed for wind directions is redicilous. Grow up people and put something which has some meaning. Japantoday is getting a playground.

Another issue within the Japanese Olympic. Committee. Just wonder is this because the Japanese working for this committee don't know how to respect and never heard about equality?

This is not the first time the Japanese Olympic committee is on the news.

Reading all those comments about China makes me laugh how much comment has no content, just blame and smart..

It seems people here think only China cannot be trusted but it is the same for other countries. Not long time ago America was monitoring Eyrope illigally. Rusland was interfering by putting fake news on Facebook. Google is collect data and come often in news with leaks or improper handling of big data.

Secondly line is a technology company and 100% free of issues doesn't excised. But most of you know better.

Posted in: 2 American men wanted for aiding Ghosn's escape arrive in Japan See in context

Again laughing about some comments.

Japan has his own constitution like any other countries. If human rights are violated because they can be detained for 20 days is nothing compared with other countries.

America also have death penalty and many died innocent. But america is a great country of course.

Anyway helping someone escape is a crime. Why should they not be punished for this action? They took the risk and now they need to face the consequences. This is the same for everyone.

Some say america should next have handed over those two to japan but there is an agreement between the countries but not complying would be a violation also.

Those two gentlemen knew the risk and Carlos is laughing because he is safe in country were there is no exchange agreement.

Those two are acting based on money and now they need to pay.

Posted in: Osaka firm accused of helping Vietnamese work illegally See in context

I'm laughing about most comments.

They had a tourist visa and that means no work allowed. They didn't had a possibility to return duo corona but they could ask friends and family to support.

Secondly they could change their visa to working visa since they had someone who is willing to hire them. Maybe having some documents had to be applied but it is not impossible.

Just another action which was not considered well.

Posted in: NHK employee arrested for assaulting taxi driver See in context

A typical excuse when reading about drunk people. To scared to take responsibility.

And NHK let their employees go out for drinking during COVID. I thought NHK is japanese public broadcast who has to give example during this period. Always they mentioned about avoid busy areas etc.

Posted in: Mother whose daughters died in overheated car while she went drinking goes on trial See in context

I'm so surprised about some reactions such as hang the mother, put her in a hot car etc. Does comments should be kept in your mind.

The mother already got the most heaviest punishment, losing your own children.

Of course she needs professional help and imprisonment but wishing her death are treats to another person. Just consider that if you have those thoughts you also should seek professional help.

Japantoday just allow those non related comments is ackward.

Posted in: High school student arrested for sexually assaulting 4-year-old girl in toilet See in context

So many awful reactions.

If the boy instead touch her than he needs professional help. Why lifetime lockup, is that a good solution?

It is not written about improper touching. It is written he touched her which is an explanation of a 4 year old child. Such statement of a 4 year old child need to be approached differently. This you will learn when you have children.

It is indeed strange why he went to toilet with her, but maybe he tried to help

Secondly (not mentioned in this article) japanese news articles are mentioning that police is still investigating the situation.

Most comments are based on information which is not clear and assuming is not the way for judging someone.

Posted in: Japan's foreign workers hit hard by pandemic See in context

some comments are true and still get many -.

But when it goes bad economically most companies are firing first the less needed including foreigners. This is around the world the same. If I look in Europe or America it will be the same.

it has an impact on people who get fired and finding work during this economic situation is difficult.

When a foreigner has a PR status and contract can request for government support such hello work.

For others it is difficult since going back cost money or people made debt to come and work in Japan. But staying cost also money. But also local people (especially student or starters) have a hard time also.
