Posted in: China’s Huawei debuts latest version of folding phone See in context

It's probably really hard to see "the point" of these phones until you have one in your hands. Same with most tech I think.

The weird thing is that they usually sound the same for any particular role/character.

Posted in: Snoop Dogg apologizes for attacking TV anchor over Bryant story See in context

Wow, so bringing up something that happened 16 years ago, not to long after Kobe and his daughter died, is okay then?

Let any of your friends or family die and a few days later someone brings up something they did in the past.

Posted in: 'Little Miss Period' tackles Japan's menstruation taboos with a punch See in context


Can someone explain why doing this in manga form is a problem? So many speakers here writing that as if it’s a given. Why are drawings a problem?

In the manga series, Little Miss Period - "Seiri-chan" in Japanese - delivers a punch to the gut that lays some women out flat before drawing blood with a syringe. When a woman's husband fails to sympathize, he gets a "period punch" of his own to help him understand.

So a pink blob, with red lips and red pants goin round puchin women and men aaand stealing blood.

The fact that it's a manga isnt the problem.

A lot of people don't seem to understand that, just maybe, people aren't too comfortable with seeing this.

Posted in: Huawei sells folding smartphone with no Google after U.S. ban See in context

Hmm... I'm not exactly a guy that supports C-tech and it's conpanies, but I'll have to admit, their folding implementation is far better than Samsung's.

As for actual use I dont think so, your screen is screwed. You'd have to fold it up then put it in a case or pouch to put it in your pocket. The Razr is kinda cool but saw a couple of hands on videos and...yeah pass.

But the good thing is this tech will get cheaper and better so I'm looking forward to the next ones.

Posted in: Trump asked Tokyo for $8 bil to keep U.S. troops in Japan: Foreign Policy See in context

The current agreement that covers the 54,000 U.S. troops stationed in Japan expires in March 2021.

Let's just pray he's not in office then.

And as far as removing U.S forces from Japan, not gonna happen. Just from a strategical standpoint.

This could actually be cool, and will likely be much better than the new SW films.

Posted in: Apple reveals triple-camera iPhone; $5 monthly streaming TV undercuts Disney See in context

Apple makes great quality phones, but they really cant DO antyhing. What are the features that warrent the price? (This is an actual question)

I have a Galaxy Note 8,(yeah it was expesive too 12万) but its an actual tool, I use the pen to translate text(if the font isnt crazy it works on games too), make gifs , instant note-taking , a lot of screenshot options ,Split screen, an SD card, can project my phone to a tv wirelessly, customization, widgets.

A few things I can say I'm jealous about with apple:

Updates are across the board

They release sooner, (I'll have to wait a while to even check out the Note 10)

They have a TON of accessories.

I'd really like to see what the dual camera recording is like on the 11.

Posted in: American man married to same-sex Japanese partner sues gov't for long-term visa See in context

"If they're separated because he has to leave Japan, it's a violation of their right to have a family life. But then if his Japanese husband has to leave Japan so they can live together, it's a violation of his right as a Japanese citizen to live in Japan," Suzuki said.

This just doesn't make sense to me.

Why can't he just get and keep a job.

Posted in: Teen bullying victim who died in apparent suicide blames school in journal See in context

The saddest thing is all that will come from this is a few more anti-bullying posters in the hallways.

Melissa Shimosato,

Your comment is (very sadly) true. 

As far as the schools, there is nothing they can really do to kids, they dont get left back a grade(because it would separate them from their peers), any other crimes their parents have to pay for. Kids are pretty much untouchable. If anyone knows anything I dont I'm all ears.

Posted in: Tokyo Olympics 1 year out: Scandal, high costs but unrivaled demand See in context

For me, most (maybe all) of the events I want to see are better suited to watch on TV. No time lag this time around. Wouldn't want to out in the crowds in Japanese summer anyway. Will probably be heading out to the bars in the evenings tho, should be a great time.

Posted in: Japan hopes Trump-Kim meeting spurs nuclear, abduction talks See in context

Hoping Trump will do something for you? Good luck with that.

But certain people's sheer hatred for Trump will utterly prevent them from objectively recognizing that reality.

"Certain" makes it sound like a few people, more like 80~90% of the world.

I absolutely love how Trump ignores stupid questions.

You know the question was basically "Did you read the report that you are making false statements about?"

Posted in: Trump launches re-election campaign, presenting himself as outsider and victim See in context

I just don't really understand how anyone person with at least a fraction of common sense could be a Trump supporter. There's really no need to list all the things wrong with HIM. If you can watch any interview he has done and feel proud, I

 As far as parties go, America is leaning to one side or the other waaaay to much. There are republicans and democrats who actually care about America. But it's more "interesting" to just negate the other side's proposals because they're on the blue or red team. And this donkey has been feuling that dumpster fire for way too long.

I cant really call myself a soccer fan, but World Cup always puts me on the couch. Too bad the match times are so late(super early). The Japan England game is at 04:00.

Posted in: YouTube updates hate speech guidelines to prohibit videos See in context

Will YouTube also crack down on channels that promote black separatism?


Hate speech should be reported and taken down, uploaders banned. But with how much people whine and cry about every little comment or opinion, YouTube will be very busy. Stand up comics might have it rough.

Your comment sounds kinda like victim blaming. Violence against people, especially women is wrong.

It's not "victim blaming. He just stated the truth.

Maybe he was doing this for a little extra pocket money and she just did it for spite, yeah he shouldnt have done what he did but you should understand how he felt.

Posted in: Japan's #KuToo movement giving women a leg-up in the workplace See in context

Well, It's quite well-known to dress up for an interview.

I still don't get why people can't figure out how to buy/wear shoes. Dress/buisness shoes suck for everyone. but a few things from the 100 yen shop or a little DIY and I can wear business shoes all day. Also, how about changing shoes when you get near the place, like, there are other options.

As far as in the workplace, it kinda does depend on your job. Like the woman working at the funeral parlor, I would expect business shoes and heels.

But please note that "Cool Biz" was started by Japanese Ministry of the Environment in 2005. So until it's "official", find workarounds.
