One of the questions has been leaked:

While walking along in desert sand, you suddenly look down and see a tortoise crawling toward you. You reach down and flip it over onto its back. The tortoise lies there, its belly baking in the hot sun, beating its legs, trying to turn itself over, but it cannot do so without your help. You are not helping. Why?

So Dyson wanted Brexit, then moved to a country which has free trade agreements with Japan and The EU. Was the support to screw the competition???

I saw that American Express purchased Pocket Concierge in Japan yesterday, so the concept of holding diners to account for short-notice cancellations must be proving relatively successful!

Dwindling numbers, conservatives being opposed to any women in power, desperately clinging to outdated traditions... it’s an interesting indicator of where Japan is at as a whole right now.

Huh? Living in Japan for 2 decades I have not noticed that at all

No, but I think cinema may have to evolve one way or another. 3d is a nice gimmick but I don’t see the current incarnation of it lasting.

Thought it was Deja-Vu but there seems to be some striking similarities in a few paragraphs to the article written by the Guardian:

I'm fairly sure that if it's operating in Japan, it's a Japanese company and subject to Japanese laws.

I’m not sure if that’s 100% true - an American client I do work for has to follow US KYC/AML regulations.

Maybe, just maybe, there will be someone somewhere in a position of power who may look at this and think “hmmm, would it be better if we produced less of this waste?”

Posted in: Tsukiji: It's not just about the fish, says Michelin chef See in context

Knowledge is not necessarily automatically bestowed based on ones birthplace.

He was a chef with Troisgros before coming to Japan so will have had extensive experience working with the fishing industry. "Fish" in that sentence doesn't mean the literal fish from the sea, but rather the entire industry. If it were not already clear enough, the sentences before and after should make that easy to understand.

Posted in: Facebook discloses security breach affecting 50 million users See in context

I think you’re confusing what has happened here - there is no connection to Facebook doing anything shady.

But it I do agree with the point you are making about PII. Europe’s GDPR is probably the biggest legal improvement in human rights since the internet began. I expect at least some of the Facebook users affected are European based which is why they have had to announce this so quickly (even before the full internal investigation is completed)

Posted in: Facebook discloses security breach affecting 50 million users See in context

there's also talk that these hackers have also obtained access to those 3rd party account sources too

Using revoked tokens? Yeah, good luck with that... anything not already taken or used is worthless without working credentials.

Posted in: Facebook discloses security breach affecting 50 million users See in context

No reports of hijacked profiles, no reports of direct messages being leaked (or threats of such action).

I’d wager that Facebook detected this and shut it down before anyone could actually do anything.

Facebook is built on php 

While they do still have PHP remnants in their stack, it’s misleading to suggest that it’s a core part these days.

Posted in: Phishing scam on 2020 Tokyo Olympics tickets detected See in context

but in my experience with Japanese companies, they seem to be in a worse state overall than in other countries I've dealt with

Companies are a whole different issue and I am in full agreement there - data security questions are usually met with blank stares when I am consulting for engineering teams. Now that Japan has joined a big EU trade agreement, (some) companies are scrambling to finally understand what GDPR implications will mean for them. Others are blissfully unaware and are going to be in for a rude awakening in 2020 - global trends suggest attacks will ramp up for any country hosting a major event.

For individuals and phishing attacks, the Japanese language provides a surprisingly good barrier. An email full of grammatical errors makes even elderly victims pick up on something being strange.

@Yubaru I work in InfoSec and can tell you with absolute conviction that the rest of the world is just as bad as Japan at how well they understand data security. We hear about scams here more frequently in the news, but this is a massive global issue.

Posted in: 930,000 Japanese teens addicted to internet: survey See in context

The army of phone zombies shuffling through streets and stations is a nuisance, but that certainly isn’t limited to teenagers.

Can see people having a lot of posture problems in the future. Having your neck angled so your head is almost straight-down for extended periods of time can’t be a good thing.

So she couldn’t send a letter to be read at the event commemorating large numbers of murdered Koreans because she was writing a letter of condolence for everyone who died in an earthquake.

Has nobody suggested writing 2 letters?
