Some people, myself included, enjoy being upside down. We are waiting for the one where you can remove the bottom, NOT the top. Then we will be impressed.

In reality, there is actually no other choice. I think most people can understand this and so no-one is surprised by the decision, only how long they took to make it.

Posted in: Apple to argue it faces competition in video game market in Epic lawsuit See in context

When Apple INVENTED the first smart phone, this closed method of getting and installing apps was to ward against the prevalence of viruses in Windows as well as to a much lesser extent, Macs. I think most people are happy to buy from a single source knowing there are no risks.

When Google actually invents something, let me know and we can check what they do.

Well they always use a photo shot with an extreme telephoto lens which results in compressing near and far object. So this street was not, in reality, very crowded. So I think we can still congratulate people living here for not ignoring matters of social distancing.

So many people care about their own convenience rather than the health of the planet. What a hopeless world we seem to live in.

Japan has ten times more litter than UK. The beaches here are often disgusting, as are riversides. Up in the hills people throw tvs etc out of their cars.

Rebuilding on higher ground, for one thing, would negate the need for all the concrete pouring for those giant sea walls etc. That would not do. The construction industry would not allow that.

Not sure why everyone is complaining. I have a pair of very expensive Gado headphones. Are you angry with me? Are you angry with Grado? Have you listened to these Apple headphones and determined they are low quality for high price?

Or maybe you just hate on everything Apple?

Japan will never get them back but if it did, tetrapods would be the first thing to happen. Then concrete hillsides. At the moment they are still pristine.

Social services of every kind can only do so much. If we become sick, in pain, immobile etc. at some point we may need release.   Legal euthanasia is a sign of a caring society.

Japanese generally don't want tatami any more; and those that do choose a plastic version that is very "convenient."

Myself I think tatami is fantastic and luckily we have two room with it.
