Gokai. Yes, Japan is doing much better than what the "official" reports suggest. As long as people think Japan isn't a threat they'll keep buying Japanese products. It's a brilliant strategy.

IMO, both sides of US politics are both equally to blame and equally insane.

Posted in: Indonesia scraps fiercely contested rail project in favor of slower train See in context

Maybe one day Indonesia will have high-speed rail, but being indebted for half a century seems foolish.

Wherever the Pentagon is involved one can expect inefficiency and pools of red ink.

Posted in: Mobile language apps help millions learn less, more often See in context

I use "Before You Know It" on both my PC and HDX. It's an electronic flashcard program. The mobile version only costs $7.99 a language, with 70+ languages to choose from.

When the East-Asian countries need foreigners to fix their economies I'm sure they'll call you.

Seriously though, the US has less than 100 million full-time workers, the lowest since 1977. However, if anyone criticizes America the ethno-centrists come out and state how perfect and infallible America is.

Yeah, lets put everyone on Japan on the dole and let China walk all over Japan. /.s

Posted in: Obama warns rejecting Iran deal would spell war See in context

Obama's statement is endemic in US politics. Too many people in America see morality in Black and White with no shades of gray. IMO, the US should aim for neutrality as much as possible. We've got too many domestic problems, so shrinking our empire makes the most sense.

Posted in: Apple pushed down to 3rd in China smartphone market See in context

Maybe the beginning of the end for Apple? A company can't just rely on reiterations of the same product forever.

Posted in: Fire sale on stuff that burns: Oil, natural gas, coal down See in context

However, oil stockpiles at an 80-year high. Everyone who can produce oil is producing oil. If Everything is as peachy-keen as the politicians and talking heads say, then why the big rush to secure oil?

There would be far fewer wars if our Government did what was best for the people rather than Defense contractors.

Posted in: China's manufacturing shows zero growth in July See in context

Up to this point China's manufacturing has been mostly junk that people buy at thrift shops. They'll have to start making higher-end goods if they want to stay in the game.

Posted in: NEC posts April-June loss on weak telecom sales See in context

Jerseyboy, the Japanese are doing better than what their false economic and business articles and stats say. I have two friends, both well-connected multi-millionaires. Both have told me more than on one occasion that Japan is doing much better than the Japanese Government states.

I agree, but that's assuming anything the Japanese government or businesses on this the media prints is true.

And you honestly believe the official MSM predictions on Japan? All I hear from you anti-Japan people is, "The sky is falling!". What makes you think that Japan needs a white person such as yourself to run their country for them?

Posted in: NSA to stop using bulk US phone data in November See in context

An older-lady I'm friends with and who is well-connected told me once that US phone lines have been bugged in one way or another since the late 1920s. On another interesting note, German-speakers were spied upon until 1956. The U.S. Government is unbelievably paranoid. IMO.

Boeing might become the Government Motors of the aircraft industry. Putting everything high-tech they could think of on their planes, whether the technology was proven or not, was probably a bad idea.
