Posted in: Rakuten Card brings Apple Pay to customers in Japan See in context

It depends how long you've been at your job (min 1 year), what kind of job you have/what kind of company it is, how much you earn annually, how long you've been living at your current residence (not always) and your visa. I just got my work visa in May after a working holiday, applied for a Rakuten Card in August, then got it in September.

I live in Osaka, downloaded the app from the Australian app store and when the servers were open for 30 mins I could play?? I caught a ratata and got an egg. I guess it was a dream.

On the news in Osaka they stressed that drink driving is a crime every time they reported this story, so I think it may have been a case of drink driving.

Posted in: Osaka court rules tattoo check on city employees illegal See in context

"You gotta believe that there will be a great deal of regret 20 years down the line when the fuller more elaborate tatts look like nothing so much as a large bruise."

Yes, a large bruise on people who are 60~80 years old at the moment who received tattoos whilst in a regiment/the first wave of tattoo machines built. Technology and ink creation has come a long way, so I'm sure that the large proportion of the western population that has tattoos now won't suffer so much from the bruised look of outdated tattoos. And even if it were, who are you to say that they will regret them?

Also, with that mentality, I'm sure a person like you will have a very hard time hiring someone. Content of character and intelligence does not end at the skin. What an ignorant and closed minded view you have. I pity you. Good thing you're not an employer.

Australians (white, christian)?? Do you not see the photo with the asian woman? Australia is a multicultural country, we are not all white and christian.

Keep your wits about you ladies! You don't have to worry if you are guy though cos these are cowardly thugs that will only attack the defenceless.

A male can be just as defenceless as a female. Don't be daft.

I was thinking the same thing Tamarama! Where is Shonen knife in this article? They came Australia not that long ago so Girl's Rock is definitely not dead.

Australia is a good example of this Selchuk, price for studio apartments in the suburbs 40-1hr away from the CBD can start at 300,000 because all of these foreign investors. Rent for your own room, not apartment, starts at $180~200 a week.

Posted in: Apple offering free recycling of all used products See in context

Apple always recycled your products and with iPods they give you 10% off your next ipod if you choose to update. No matter how old and if it's broken. They just put a little notification on their website reminding customers that it's available on Earth Day.

Hawkeye, almost everyone knows to destroy the hdd of a product before throwing it away. You can give them the computer without the hdd if you're so paranoid and they will still dispose of it for you free if charge. Don't be so quick to talk ill.

Posted in: Search for Malaysia Airlines plane widens as frustrations grow See in context

I wonder why they aren't going to the black box for information which can practically withstand any impact and transmits location information for 30 days even when submerged in the ocean. You'd think they'd go to that but...

I'm hoping they won't reschedule again as it was supposed to air this month, and previously last year in July but they were both cancelled! But I'm glad we have another date to look forward to.

Ps the image is not official :)
