Fingers crossed on the 30th, for the Japanese launch, the American rocket that just went up has a a potential payload of 140,000 pounds, so still some way to go.

estimating that most people only use their vehicles around 10 percent of the day, meaning the rest of the time could be dedicated to picking up fares. Owners could manage their car on the network using the smartphone on 5G

And tomorrow you'll see another amazing picture, of Falcon Heavy taking off, maybe one day on its way to Mars, about as far as humans can travel.

Maybe to share as to be driven, but without driver, it was called car pooling during rush hour and car rental at other times with autonomous cars blurring the line with Taxis and buses, trams and trains, the Docomo.com ebike at stations works well, Nissan have ecars for hire in Yokohama, my point is we need to clean up the last of the petrol cars they make.

Its an eyesore with bags of dirty earth piled high, hotspots occurred where contaminated water ran to, over all background radiation we are told here in Australia is only 6 or 7 and we should know we mine the dam stuff.

Just put the top soil back, remove the plastic and move on, maybe not agriculture, but forestry, some product that's not eaten.

All he had to say ;" this will help the recovery, not ; " more important than", simple gaffe, probably poor language skills, so yes parliamentarian is not his role, good call by PM.

Very brave or very stupid that she came back, they have no connection to Nissan, so should just quietly leave, forfeit the bail, as a fine to reimburse Nissan and GO.

At this stage self driving is too clever for Nissan, just smart nav with 5G will do, I know it doesn't sound like a winner, but striving for "best taxi" is a good step towards the future cars have to be like, and if you've seen the "Crowns", they drive now in Japan, you would be hard pressed to think its the Worlds third economy !

Do you remember Mazda with its polluting rotary engine or the turbo era, with noise and smoke, or VW with its diesel, Nissan have made a start with LEAF, but no cars should have auxiliaries driven by belts, so Nissan could lead the way, and that would help their shares.

People are concerned about air purity, that is why the push for EV, or at least hybrid (no-idle), have you ever been in a traffic jam, with fumes of the cars blowing in the cars behind, its disgusting !

NISSAN definitely need a CLEAN image in more ways than one !

Well we "share" escooters and ebike, using hi viz shirts, helmets and disposible hairnets, yes "sharable" cars is coming, and Nissan better be ready for it, with their new team from the top down.

Well move ahead with electrifying the whole range, people don't like fan belts anymore, and they are still wary of EVs

Posted in: Nissan shareholders vote to remove Ghosn as director See in context

So there is no Chairman and Renault are just as much in charge of the whole business as before, his wife had multiple passports as did Ghosn, no I think the prosecutors did a good job, and no conviction so they haven't done anything wrong, just kept him from the Press.

I wish Nissan et al the best, its all about electric cars from now on.

Well that's not so bad, after all you only have to go as far as Japan to find the use of Ivory, so you can't really blame BRI unless America tells you to.

Posted in: Kono suggests need to end reversal of Japanese names in English See in context

Not sure the sound matters but the ORDER of machine readable letters that constitutes your "name", certainly does, so you need to get this most basic question answered, first name second name or second name first name ?

Same date; do you put day then month or month then day ?

Posted in: Thai police arrest 15 Japanese men in call center scam See in context

Ethically its wrong, but so is the top one percent having all the money, what surprises me is fifteen hardworking phone operators can make $12million in two months from such a tiny scam;

falsely claim that their phone use exceeded a limit and that they would need to pay an excess charge to continue using their phones.

I mean excess charge on phone usage is not a lot, normally.

Is this a real story.

Posted in: Kono suggests need to end reversal of Japanese names in English See in context

Its a very profound question, more to do with the age of the culture, in the old days with book keepers they would put surname first, but with modern computers it could cope with Christian name first, find the space and sort by surname, what's of more concern is how middle names are treated.

Left out, initialised or written in full.

Posted in: Kono suggests need to end reversal of Japanese names in English See in context

So even we will put "Surname,Christan name" for lists (like phonebooks, remember those ?), but address people and letters the normal way.

But then we have longer more varied Surnames.
