    Awful! Dreadful! The worst I've heard yet is calling "Raising Arizona" 赤ちゃん泥棒... So they give away what happens in the movie before it even starts! Its quite common that they take an interesting name that leaves intrigue, and dumb it down like the example above!

    ...oh, and as for the wonderfully reviewed Xperia Z... Their mobile business accounts for 1% of their business! That single sector is not going to fix Sony's woes. (For those not in Japan, the post above that says PER = P/R in common american terminology, which is the "Price earnings Ratio").

    Sony stock price still has a PER of 48, hardly what you would call a good stock buy unless you really thought they had fantastic things in the pipeline that would greatly increase their profits over the next few years... They still have a ways to go.

    Whoever is against generating power from nuclear fission is an idiot Right only for those who are mathematically challenged. Why don't you add in the cost for Tepco cleanup in your energy prices, not to mention actually including the costs to manage the spent fuel for thousands of years... Nuclear has never been viable when you look at actual total costs.

    Why be proud of something you have no control over? Religion is somewhat similar. How is it that most of the world feels they are the lucky ones to have been born in the best country, and are a part of the only true religion. Highly unlikely that you are correct on either front, much less from any single point.

    What the hell is wrong with reporting these days? "43 dead"--- I think they are only counting US deaths... are these the only ones that count?

    Microsoft tries to play catch-up again by putting together a muscle car with great components held together with a crappy OS. It would be one thing if it was actually a Win 8 OS, but its a stripped down confusing thing that is going to further erode consumers confidence in MS.

    Yeah, right, sorry S. Korea... The only place that seems to think it is fun to make fun of the chubby asians are the European Countries. Yes, certainly that is the point that Psy is making with this video and this song... But that doesn't mean that Japan (or any other Asian nation) will necessarily see the humor in it.

    Why cry if a thief stole kick-backs from a dirty construction manager? There really is no other explanation for why someone in construction would keep 20 million stashed under their mattress, or why some shady folks would even know about this money...

    Any drama to shows the reality of any profession will either be too boring for prime time, or too embarrasing to the profession they are trying to portray.

    Good to see we have master diplomats here on this forum... Sinking the ships is obviously the smartest response. Escalation is clearly not a good solution.

    Regardless what your political view on who "owns" these rocks--- both sides are being idiots. Japan provoked the matter with the nationalization of the island (buying them from the private owners), and China is not only allowing the protests but is actually encouraging them. There were apparently air raid sirens in Shanghai... What purpose would this serve other than to panic the populace? I don't see a good end to this...

    But still, even if you want to argue making solar/renewable infrastructure is too expensive, you cannot compare that to the cost of running nuclear energy--- clearly, nuclear has cost them more to run when you consider the costs they now have to pay for.... And we still haven't seen the long term costs of spent fuel storage actually be taken into account either. If its short term costs they are complaining about--- sell off their @Tokyo data center. That will build you a nice renewable power plant!

    Sell off @Tokyo and quit your bitching, Tepco! I love the quote that in order to have a "healthy financial condition" they need nuclear--- right, your nuclear policy seems to be exactly what got you in this mess. Talk about incompetence. Hurry up, free the energy markets, and let Tepco die a quick death!

    All you silly people can make whatever claims you want about whose islands they are... But I highly doubt anyone here is really an expert on the issue.

    Seems to me that having the international courts make a decision would be the only way to solve this peacefully, because you can spin the story in any number of ways. Korea "saw it first" and showed on maps, doesn't make it Korea's property. Proximity to whatever country also does not make it that countries property. I believe there are historic documents, particularly after WWII that may have some say in the matter.

    In any case, It seems like Japan must have a better case if they are willing to go to court, but Korea is not... Does this not imply that Korea would have more to loose?

    This really isn't all that new. Remember the Kobe kid? Now apparently "reformed" and living here in society under a new name. There have always been fringe freaks, its just that the incident is so shocking that it sticks in our minds --- but really it is nothing that is statistically significant enough to lose sleep over...

    What the hell is a "direct core monitoring fusion splicer"???? Cold fusion at home? This is definately the most bizzare article I have ever read, as I have no idea what any of it means... Sounds like an article out of "The Onion" or something.
