Japan's smartphones on the hardware are good. Their software however is a joke which is why many people prefer the simple iPhone.

What's the big deal? If people want to spend their money on an upgraded phone let them. Did you pay for their phone? No so just let them be. I have an iPhone 5 and probably won't upgrade it for another year or so. It works great and use it daily. Apple can take something so simple and sell it to make it appear grand. Their marketing works well and it shows. You don't really see many people line up for samsung phones as compared to the simplified and more limited iPhones.

The jewish bible has been revised several times. The Christan Bible has been revised several times to fit a more modern world in some sense. Not the Koran however, their teachings are still that of the 7th century. Kill Homosexuals, cut the clitoris from women, either convert to islam or die. None of those practices are fit with the western modern world. They need to moderonize and compromise, not the west.

There are other reports indicating that when police showed up, this guy told the police that the little girl was his wife. Can anyone confirm this. That sounds so sick and disgrunting. Not a normal thing for a 59!year old man to say.

Seriously no one in the U.S knows or really cares about comfort women. The thing is, this is in a part of Virginia where the majority of people are Korean Americans. So the state goes with what the people want, and erects a statue. I think it's great to spread your cultural influence, but using the U.S as political means to get your point across or make Americans more aware isn't going to make us hate Japan. If that is where this going. No need to open up old wounds that took place more than 70 years ago.

Did she try addressing him in Japanese? If Abe addressed her in Korean I think it shows an attempt for gaining respect. It's something

“I hope that other Korean Americans in other states will try to correct their textbooks,” he said. “It’s not just good for Korean-American children ... it’s good for all Americans
I laughed really hard at the last line. Its good for all Americans, really?! really?! Your average American couldn't care less if the sea on the other side of the world is named East Sea or Sea of Japan. How is this good for the average american. Its not, its just to appease his Korean-American voters who obviously care. Personally I think Sea of Japan sounds better than East sea. If you ask people where the East sea is, it can be anywhere. But mention sea of Japan, people will guess more or less where its actually located. So geographically speaking, the name should remain.

I was in Osaka for two weeks and stayed with a wonderful host family. I felt like I was the only foreigner there except Kansai Airport. When I traveled to Hiroshima and Himeji, I saw some foreigners like myself. Most of the time I spent in Osska however, I truly felt that I was the only one there.

Rodman should be exiled from the U.S. He sang "happy birthday" to this murderous dictator and than bowed to him gracefully, to the enemy of the U.S. Rodman doesn't know the first thing about diplomacy and is making himself to be the laughing stock of the media.

As an American as well, I hope it does not prevail. Not because I dislike apple, (I'm typing this comment using an iPhone5). It's just that competition is healthy and the more variety, the better. More choices, means multiple companies will thrive instead of just one.

The U.S has already made its stance clear without sugar coating anything. They will not register their flight paths, or disclose their Logo when flying over the new zone. They will not accept the new fly zone and America is making that very clear. China better be ready to stand its ground.

Did China seriously think that the U.S was going to just sit by and let things run it's course? Since this new air space also partially overlaps with Korea's airspace, it would seem that all China is doing is uniting Korea and Japan to brace themselves for the big storm coming ahead. That storm of course is China.

Well I was staying in Osaka for two weeks while visiting over there from America, and stayed with a wonderful host family in July. I still keep in contact with them today. I loved it over there and the people were very kind to me. Who knows though, maybe they were giving me ugly looks when I had my back turned or something. Point is I would visit there again regardless of what others think of me. If I was treated nice, why would I avoid going back just because people have a different view point on things.

Okay so Yamamoto handed the emperor a letter stressing his concerns of Fukushima. In reality, nothing is going to happen because the emperor has no power and no say in any of these matters. He may voice his opinion, but it won't be an order of law.
Also this shows that Yamamoto is trying to get the emperor involved because he believes his own government is incapable of dealing with the situation since they tend to put a band aid over the problem. This can show all of Japan that a lawmaker himself knows that his own government is incapable of dealing with the problem at hand. So I can see how this could cause an uproar.

Yes the U.S should back Japan and I myself will be willing to assist if anything goes down in that region, you can bet on it.

Just let him be. He is offering his prayers to a shrine in his own country. He can do whatever he wants. Besides, he is staying away from it which shows that he actually may put others into consideration as to their thoughts.

What is China trying to get at here? The U.S has an obligation to protect Japan hence the 1947 U.S imposed pacifist constitution. So if Japan is attacked, the U.S is just suppose to sit by and watch? Because it sounds like that is what China is trying to tell them.

@yuriotani, this American here does not want another war involving our forces in the Middle East. I've had friends and family who fought over there and I'm glad they are now home safe and thankful for their service. We need to get out of the Middle East and I'm glad Syria is telling our government not to intervene.

This poor guy was murdered because some kids wanted to get a kick out of taking another life. Truly is disgusting, and now they may face the death penalty because of it.

Seriously who cares what they do in their own home country. Let them pay their respects to the war dead. I know Japan white washes their history but nothing is going to be done about it. Everyone complains and protests but its always going to be the same.

Free speech should not be illegal no matter how bad the situation is. If you limit the freedom for people to speak their minds, it makes it easier for the government to control what the people should say. Free speech must be preserved.

Looks like an interesting movie worth checking out. Tommy Lee Jones is a really good actor.

If war were to break out, I highy doubt the U.S would resort to using it's nuclear arsenal to take out North Korea. Can you imagine the radiation fallout possibly heading to China, South Korea or even Japan? The U.S would have to wipe out the regime of the North without having to use nuclear weapons.
