Posted in: China criticizes U.S. missile defense radar in Japan See in context

"Government is made up of powerful people and my 5 experience in Tokyo makes me ashamed that the US government values a sexist, xenophobic, male dominated society as its strongest ally."

The Art of War says to make yourself seem far when you are near, to criticize something when it's in your favor.

Japan is more than capable of setting up their own radar system. It's a double edge sword! Why must America do it on Japan's soil?

The answer: The US radar is also there to make sure Japan does not send any missiles abroad.

I'm not surprised most Toyota models are relatively unaffected except the really inexpensive ones, like Corolla.

Hmm... I always thought Chan was a Cantonese lastname. And Chen is the Mandarin counterpart. Does not his wife's grandmother speak Cantonese?

This man is actually a hero. He spotted a loophole in the "system" of gun control and made his knowledge public. Sort of like spotting a vulnerability in a piece of software and sharing knowledge of that vulnerability, rather than keeping it to yourself...

"he Germans would argue with you about that claim".

I'm not trying to be biased towards German products. But, have you ever seen a BMW resume from stopping on a inclined slope? It literally rolls backward by a few feet before it gains the traction to go forward. I have never seen a Toyota go backward after you release the brakes on an incline slope...

Way to go Fujitsu! You're one of the few Japanese electronics companies I really love beside Pioneer!

Japanese engineering and manufacturing is simply the best! When you're going to risk your life by flying, at least you'd want to ensure the aircraft you're on was solidly engineered and constructed!

Posted in: PC market still ailing despite gains in U.S., Europe See in context

@Fadamor: That'ssomewhat not true. I'm typing this on a 7-year-old C2D with 2GB of RAM. I was ready to apply a new thermal paste to the CPU after severe heat issues Then, I found out you could permanently underclock it in the BIOS. I now have it running at half its max frequency. It gets as warm as my armpit whereas before the adjustment, I could literally cook an egg on it. No need to apply new thermal paste. I hardly notice a decrease in performance since Intel made the mistake of making C2D's almost too good for slightly above ordinary use, since I'm hardly an ordinary user nor am I a power user...

PC sales cycles don't go in five years. It really depends on when you bought your PC. If you bought a computer post the Intel Duo Core era, there would be no need to replace it. These PC's are capable of running Windows 10 optimally, so they have a lifespan of many years into the future. What is really killing the PC sales was the invention of low TDP and fast CPU's that can potentially last for decades. The D2C was the beginning of an era of such declining PC sales.

Sensationalist journalism at its best. Seems about time. Operating systems are "reviewed and updated" more frequently than this. What did ya expect? People to just sit iddle and not discuss things after 17 years?

" who envision the Rising Sun flag again being a superior military power to be reckoned with"

Lol, com'on guys, Japan isn't an empirialistic country like many are led to believe. They only went to war in the past b/c they needed resources. It's not like they wanted to expand their presence to rule the world, sort to speak.

Are they simply stopping manga publication, or will there be a true ending where everything gets resolved like Inuyasha?

"And one more: the four seasons thing? It's fairly common, and often more pleasant in other places. No rainy season, and without the brutally hot and long summers."

Are you kidding me? I much prefer a 4 season with plenty of rain and heat, versus one where winter is below 20 degrees Celsius and the sky looks bleak like it's the end of the world for most of Autumn and Winter!

Seems about time. We've had DVD's for a while now, yet nobody took interest in upping the sampling frequency to take advantage of DVD's 4GB rather than CD's 700MB. Betcha 10 years from now, people will talk about Super Hi-Res music that's just a sampling frequency upping again to take advantage of BluRay's 32GB...

Indirectly, my friend. The profits from the export industry eventually find their way into other sectors thru spending...

Uh, guys... One industry is where you put stuff into your body. The other moves your body around at great distances. I would be more careful in putting stuff into my body with greater control of this industry.

Posted in: Abe makes fresh call for Japan-China summit See in context

Abe is a very clever man indeed. His political actions have purposely destroyed the yen. Look at how fast the yen has fallen since Abe came into power at the end of 2012. A weakened yen means increased exports and economic recovery for Japan! Japan is after all a mostly export country...

Posted in: Abe makes fresh call for Japan-China summit See in context

Abe must be joking right? In a few years, China's economy will be 3-4X larger than Japan's, while Japan will struggle at best to even keep a positive growth rate... It's not like Japan makes crap (they make the best things in the world). Only, their prices don't really align with the world's needs.
