Nothing to do with Trump.

Just look at the likes of CNN and their obvious manipulation of facts. They brought this on themselves.

There is nothing wrong with Japanese whiskey. Many of them are a top class drop.

Agree but disagree with the latter.

I get 20GB if data for ¥2,680/month, and unlimited home Internet for ¥5,960 a month. Both from DoCoMo. Pretty happy compared to the competition.

Build more schools... It's that simple

You clearly haven't seen the number of empty schools all over the country! Empty because there are no more kids to fill them!

Trump now: "I love Sumo. The Sumo is great!"

Trump 2020: "Sumo? I don't know anything about Sumo."

Posted in: Japan's telcos get 5G nod from regulators See in context

Why in the world did no one (in no country actually) examine the health impacts of this omnipresent technology before allowing it to be rolled out on a grand scale?

Belgium already banned 5G on the basis of health and safety data available.

Hilarious when you realise Japanese drivers are some of the worst in the world!

Arrested on suspicion only, no evidence, just suspicion.

Pathetic prosecutors.

Posted in: High school teacher in hot water after forcibly giving male student a buzz cut See in context

Sh1mon, a school is where students go to learn, not be assaulted by someone who has absolutely no right to touch any child or decide how they should look. It's school, not the military!

How one looks does not impede one's ability to study. This school is in my area and parents are very unhappy with the school!

Posted in: Filmmaking icon Tim Burton soars to new heights with 'Dumbo' See in context

I give Rotten Tomatoes as much credit as I give my morning toilet visit.

The original movie is awesome given the times, and harping on about Jim Crowe references now, is akin to blasting the 'It's Cold Outside' song at Christmas. Pointless and irrelevant.

6 years seems pretty harsh. And given the length of time the police were watching this guy, sounds like a proverbial witch hunt.

Is it just me, or does Japan seem more crime-ridden now compared to 10 or 20 years ago?

Definitely seems more profound than 20 years ago, but I'm guessing that's just down to faster news travel thanks to the Internet.

Posted in: Apple pivots to services with video, news offerings See in context

Apple, netflix, disney, hulu etc etc, we end up with too many streaming services making me want to go back to the rent-a-dvd era to rent what I actually WANT to watch.

What’s with the religious imagery?

It's a 'plus' sign, not a crucifix.

Once Disney starts streaming their movies, the game will be a lot different.

Netflix is getting pricey in comparison to the competition, Hulu - not worth it, Amazon Prime - could be better and likely will be.

There needs to be better access via VPN services to allow greater access too. Restricted content based on each location is all good but sometimes we just need to access home area content.
