@Serrano: what's wrong with the mascots? They are cute, like any other mascot. Plus, they were chosen by some kids if I remember correctly, they are not supposed to please the adults.

Both Samsung and Apple need to wake up. They are doomed if they continue to sell obviously overpriced phones. At this point, Chinese phones are able to offer basically the same, at better price. This is how companies once great always lost their market share. They think nobody can do better than them, and they keep absurd high prices, not really justified by their products quality. Chinese competitors are taking share in any electronics market for this reason. Cheap and good stuff, not so much worse than more popular brands.

@Haaa Nemui: Indeed, amazing phones. My last "normal" flip flop phone was Nokia. Excellent, Simply excellent, I love It! It still works! I bought my first smartphone (Samsung) only to have a smartphone. Maybe it's for this reason my experience with Samsung was so bad, after my beautiful experience with Nokia. It stopped to work so early, while my flip flop Nokia is 15 years old at least, and it still works. After my First Samsung, I started to buy Chinese smartphones. There's no point in spending a lot of money in so fragile smartphones. At least in terms of quality/price, Chinese smartphones are the best, imho. You pay for what you get.

Samsung phones are actually bad quality compared to their price. They are overpriced despite being mediocre. I have had only one of them and I will never get another one. My last smartphones are Chinese and I find them very good.

Posted in: Macron hopes that France will rebuild Notre Dame in 5 years See in context

@cricky: if I am not wrong, you were the one who said they could need one or two centuries to restore the Cathedral. You look very afraid, but as I already told you, the Europeans own the know how to do these things. The structure was saved, so they can do it.

I don't know if this can help you to understand, but I want to speak you about St. Francis Basilica's volta destroyed in 1997 earthquake. In this case, also some human lives were lost. This video, called "Assisi, the impossible restoration", shows how the workers collected about 100,000 pieces to restore the volta, assembling them like a puzzle.

The restoration is complete. Have some faith in humanity, when something isn't completely destroyed, you can save it.

There's not any progress with North Korea that can be done, without involving China. It's not a case that this is happening while US and China are engaging in a war trade. Let's be realistic, these summits between Trump and Kim were always meaningless.

@Andy: Catholic Church = Città del Vaticano

Despite it being an indipendent State, it's supported mainly by Italian taxpayers, so you are saying Italian taxpayers must pay to rebuild a French Church. There's something wrong here.

Fortunately, the structure is saved and It can be rebuilt. Don't worry, European Countries have the know how to do these things. The Teatro La Fenice in Venice was destroyed by a fire in 1996, and it was rebuilt exactly like it was.

Posted in: U.S. seeks quick deal on tariff cuts with Japan See in context

Anyway, in the short term Trump can take advantage also by the division between East Asians. As we see on a daily basis, South Korea/Japan/China conflicts prevent the formation of an economic union similar to the EU. Actually, China knows that, and this is why it is trying to get closer to Japan. South Korea instead continues the anti-Japanese rethoric...

Trump is also taking advantage from the EU falling apart. The EU project was a good idea, but in this case the French-German leadership ruined everything, causing anti-EU feelings increase everywhere. In this complex scenario, for now Trump is basically a winner, mainly thanks to others' incompetence.

Trump isn't completely stupid. He is trying to contein China before it becomes too strong. For this reason, he is using any way possible, also hurting his "allies" way more directly than the Democratics would do, without caring about diplomacy. If you ask me, this strategy in the short term is very good. Indeed, despite American economy never recovered really from Lehman Brothers disaster, your average American feel it improved thanks to Trump protectionism. Anyway, in my opinion in the long term his strategy will be a failure. China can be slowed, but it can't stopped. And American allies are already looking at China more positively exactly because of Trump pressure on them. In the long term, this can't be that good for America.

I already it said: North Korea is actually less harmful for Japan than South Korea, and this says it all. You can find South Korean anti-Japanese propaganda also on YouTube.

@JeffLee: in the same way South Korean and American consumers wouldn't be forced to buy Japanese fish even if the bans were lifted, but I noticed most JT users agree with South Korea and America position about it. So, if Japanese people fear hormone meat from the US, you should understand them.

As a self proclamated developing Country, South Korea can keep advantages about its fishery and agricultural industries, but you never hear Trump complaining about this.

@AlexBecu: don't compare Japan to South Korea. The US never forced a Plaza Accord on Korea, plus, if you didn't know, South Korea can still keep the status of self proclamated "developing Country" in the WTO. If you ask me why the US treat South Korea so better than Japan, I think it's for two reasons: First, South Korea was never a true problem for American economy hegemony like Japan was in the 80s, and second, if South Korea economy crashed, people around the world couldn't see the difference between the Chinese supported North Korea, and the American supported South Korea. In other words, It would be bad propaganda for the US.

The deal could potentially be subject to a U.S. national security review at a time when Washington is stepping up its scrutiny on Chinese investment in the United States.

The U.S. can't both hurt Japanese economy with trade war and stuff, AND hope that Chinese won't buy Japanese high tech corporations. You can't have both the things. If you hurt Japan, you help China, since Chinese have a lot of cash and they can buy whatever they want, way more then the Americans.

But this is what Trump administration is failing to understand. The more he hurt his supposed "allies", the more he helps his biggest rival China. Oh, well.

Posted in: Battles intensify around Libyan capital as thousands displaced See in context

France ruined all Italian efforts for peace in Lybia made with Palermo Conference. Sure, peace in Lybia was never really wanted from Germany, Russia, and the US either. But Italy really wanted it. To Italy Lybian peace was both to protect Italian economic interests, but also a huge matter of National security, because of the massive immigration in Italy caused by Lybia mess. But France in particular had to ruin everything, France is so greedy, it's never enough for France.

Posted in: Battles intensify around Libyan capital as thousands displaced See in context

France is supporting Haftar together with Russia, the Saudi and Egypt. France and the US started the war against Gaddafi for oil. Italy had good relationship with Gaddafi but it was forced to support that disaster that opened the flood of migrants here. The new current Italian government closed the Italian ports to the human trafficking from Lybia and tried to regain the Italian influence in Lybia stolen by France. This is the real reason why Macron hates the current Italian government, all the rest is a farsa. And this is why exactly NOW war in Lybia started again, the timing isn't random. Thanks to the Conferenza of Palermo, the current Italian government hoped to have got Trump support in Lybia, since Italy now is supporting the UN backed government. France is supporting Haftar, and if he wins like it is happening, not only basically France won Lybia and protected all her interests in her former colonies in Subsaharian Africa, but with this it will cause a new flood of refugees towards Italy, because Italian government made some deals against this flood of migrants with the ONU back government, not with Haftar. Thanks to Haftar winning France will win both interests in Lybia and will force to open Italian ports again, like the EU wants, because this time you can't avoid to accept actual war refugees. Italy had APPARENTLY got Trump support, but NOW he abandoned Italy to her destiny. The Conferenza of Palermo was actually a failure, Italy hadn't to trust Trump. This is the real situation in the Mediterraneo, France won again, and Italy both lost all her interests in Lybia and will be forced AGAIN to open her ports to human trafficking from Lybia, for the sake of the NGOs of the whole Europe. It's a disaster.

It's a private start up, they aren't wasting public money. I don't get why some people are so salty towards them. And they didn't say they asked for advice from foreign experts, only from experts.
