Posted in: Apple unveils headphones that cost twice as much as AirPods See in context

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.

Posted in: Textile maker hopes 'Demon Slayer' anime will promote tatami industry See in context

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.

Posted in: Japan's total coronavirus cases top 100,000 See in context

A friend had covid: high temperature, loss of taste etc. meant no doubt about it. She went to an Otorhinolaryngologist. He never used the word covid, didn't test her or even suggest she get a test, sent her home with the equivalent of a prescription for aspirin. She lives with her aged mother-in-law. The doctor never asked about home details.

The fact is all clinics and most hospitals are private businesses and they do not want to be associated with the virus because it will scare away normal customers (patients). Thus we have heard about people being told to use the back entrance for secret covid tests.

All this means is that the numbers in Japan are pure fantasy. Stay safe, wear your mask, social distance, use your brain.

Banks transport hard cash in trucks from A to B. I pay a bill on line. Data is sent. No need for physical object later to be transported. Old guys will complain.

There is always the danger of concrete public works project in Japan; however one thing that makes this country interesting and unlike any other place is the tiny and atmospheric shrines and temples that dot the mountainscapes.

Because NHK is known to be honest, impartial and trustworthy. And everyone here has actually read that boy's diary and knows its contents and veracity.

Apple haters are always good for a laugh. But these comments here a way funnier than usual. Sell macs for cheaper than the component cost? lol. Half a day of battery for the watch? lol. Shortening life of their products? LOL. Never had a mac for less than ten years. iPads last for ever. Still using iPhone SE with zero problems. Wife has 2nd generation watch with zero issues. You will find Apple customers are generally loyal and for a reason.

Standard retail markup is 30%. The Apple Store is what keeps the phone free from malware. If you don't like it, don't buy apple. There are many many choice. How is this a monopoly?

UK says so because they are slowly realising the giant blunder of leaving the EU. Now they will clutch at any straw.

An ignoramus who believes he knows more than medical professionals about medical matters. And stubbornly persists. In a taxi driver it would be shocking, but the guy in charge of a country? Literally unbelievable.
