@Eric Kalmus Fukushima and KitaKyushu are at opposite ends of Japan. Radiation levels in water decrease proportionally to the cubic distance from the source. That is extremely unlikely.

Posted in: Review: Larger iPhones eliminate reason to switch See in context

The larger iPhone has given me a reason to switch next time my contract is up. It's just too big to be practical. I have no idea why, after 30 years of reducing the size of mobile phones to make them more manageable, suddenly bigger would be better. There are a few of these kind of people and Android caters to them perfectly. Apple has just locked out all of the normal people who use mobile phones and when the 5S stops being sold, many people will be searching for ways to escape Apple's ecosystem which will have a chain reaction to iPad, Apple Watch, and of course the neglected OSX, which many people have been cajoled towards in recent years with the promise of 'it just works' while the most recent half-arsed builds bring back frustrating memories of Windows 98. Apple has not only become the new Samsung of mobile, they have also become the new Microsoft of computer operating systems. Jobs is currently rolling like a spinning beach ball in his grave.

Posted in: 60% of Japanese support whale hunt; 14% eat whalemeat, survey shows See in context

60% of (a small, non-random sample of 1700) Japanese (readers of Asahi Shimbun who had views strong enough to act out on the urge to fill out an online poll) support whaling, while 14% of (a small, non-random sample of 1700) Japanese (readers of Asahi Shimbun who had views strong enough to act out on the urge to fill out an online poll) eat whale.

Sounds scientific!
