Can't move appli's from Iphone to Ipad, they need to be purchased new.

as far as i'm aware this is not true if the application supports both the iphone and the ipad

Shockingly a skill set in scamming people out of money does not translate into solid business acumen...

not so sure about that

did they tune in for the second episode to find out that it was santa in the costume?? which means it wasn't really Muhammed... but then it couldn't have been Muhammed anyway because it's just a computer animation anyway... oh my god, it's a wonderful, beautiful thing! tre & matt really don't get enough credit. fantastic modern satire!

what's arabic for "taking the bait"?

hiring Ice Age from 1994 to 2004

blame the totally inflexible recruitment system. companies miss out on a lot of talent because their methods are so rigid

DiCaprio has grown into a talented and respectable actor. I look forward to seeing these thrillers.

certainly has. managed to shake that pretty-boy romantic lead image he looked to be saddled with a while ago. being scorsese's new principal leading man doesn't hurt either

cancam mag does indeed seem to be the bible for j-stepford (wannabe) wives. can't really blame the girls themselves, though. they know not what they do

So now Japan is importing talent in order to win a medal? No home-grown ice dancers? Interesting....

Posted in: First of all, the advanced communications skills needed to go from chatting someone up to actually having sex are deteriorating. Second, people get (sexual) satisfaction from the strong stimulation pr See in context

My two-cents: Japanese women (mostly college students) I've met OUTSIDE of Japan are buck-wild and ready to go with just about anyone (Just ask any bus driver in Guam); however, when they return to Japan they go back to their old, anti-social selves. It's not just "chat-to-sex" communication skills, but communication skills in general that are deteriorating. It's the culture, IMHO.

wouldn't this example suggest more that this has to do with the cultural expectations placed on women, rather than anything else? you could say that their rather... promiscuous behaviour is just the genie getting let out of the bottle after an obviously prolonged period...

Posted in: How well founded is Japan's gastronomic pride? See in context

i often think that the "healthy" stereotype of japanese food is purely based on that fact that it is low fact in comparison with western diets. on the other hand it's clearly much higher in sodium....

It looks like Apple screwed the pooch on this on.

that's what they said about the imac/ipod/iphone... i wouldn't count those chickens... i think a lot of people think that they expect this to be as big as the iphone. not going to happen, and they know it. it's definitely a more niche product

I was and I am always wondering why really nice underwear is not popular among Japanese ladies

i suppose they don't necessarily sport the most flattering of designs, but in my experience they are more partial to wearing matching sets than british ladies

what a waste of $$$!

just a load of rocks. although precious stones do have their practical uses

kinda reminds me of Utopia (the book) where children are encouraged to play with gold/jewels as children and thus society views obsession about shiny things as childish, dress dour and concentrate of the more important things in life. Moore was a smart fellow

Posted in: Sexless in Japan See in context

a lot of nails getting hit on the head in this discussion. my 2c:

it's a problem pretty much everywhere on this planet, especially industrialised nations, but especially so in japan: people don't learn to live. they're taught to fit into a social role but they're never taught how to actually live a life, or rather pointed in the direction whereby they can learn it for themselves. so it's no surprise that people don't know how to enjoy the simple things in life (sex, for example). to do that would detract from their proscribed social role

but, as i said, this is not only japan, but seems to be a particularly developed affliction there
