    What's next, BlackBerry? Offer a round trip to Caribe? I don't give the company another couple of years before it goes bankrupt.

    Just this last Saturday, TNT made a marathon of Star Wars, all 6 episodes in a row. It was a great joy, but the differences between the 1970s and 1990s films are abysmal. In quality and acting. I was just wondering how that the robots ants in the ice look so real while the cities and creatures in that jay-jay world are so fake. Two universes apart. Bring the 1970s back, please!!

    Some names are unique, and thus perceived as weird. However there's a universe between unique and weird, but parents cross this imense line without thinking twice. Take Heather, Rehtaeh, backwards. Seriously. But, as impossible as it seems, funny names in English and Japanese pale in comparison to what happens in Brazilian Portuguese, namewise. Just today I got a leaflet from a hairdresser next block, Khllawddhya. Can you believe that?

    I forgot to mention that travelling back in time is one of the plots of ¨Intestellar¨, which I read, will be screening in Japan from the 22nd. In the movie Cooper falls into the accreation disk of a black hole and then. ..well, I will not kill the joy of it. I do recommend this wonderful movie, I became a fan of it.

    This question sends us to the decoherence state of quantum physics: travelling to the past is possible, but we can not change anything there - just observe. To the future, here we see the double slit phenomena: reality splits into infinite versions, and just one will ¨materialize¨. So, we can not know which point of the probability wave will be the future. Past belongs to everybody, but the future, only to a higher intelligence we are not well aware of.

    A classic in the genre. I saw it yesterday, just waiting for another sci-fi movie with a tasteless spoonful of American family drama thrown in the middle of the action that would make me forget the real world for a couple of hours. Instead, to my surprise, it's a thought provoking movie. If you understand a little bit of quantum mechanics and Einstein's relativity, then you'll be amazed at how hard they tried, and succeed, to make surreal concepts like ¨the 5th dimension¨ visible, or how the twins who gets old at different speeds of time would work in a space travel. If you are not into these areas of physics (but you should - the very brain of the computer you're using now is a work of quantum mechanics in a 3D scale), it will make you feel interested. There's already a book on QM explaining the physics in the movie. Nolan also was very sensitive with the sound used in the movie. Instead of the ¨epic¨ themes that have plagued Hollywood for years, he used a lot of silence and minimal back noises - which makes the space scenes more realistic. QM, wormhole, and poetic licenses aside, it's a superb movie. I would love to see it getting some Oscars next year.

    As in daily life, be wise. If I receive a pop-up message telling me to avoid such and such files, sites, I do that. Just incidentally, I had to use a Windows notebook today. I was amazed at how many malware warning I got. In the end it was very tiring, having to close so many warning windows I got in half an hour. In comparison to OSX it is very clunky and dirty, visually.

    @Fandango: welcome to the world of Apple haters, they'll be against iDevices no matter what. If it's good, it's good only for Apple. If it's bad, it's bad for everybody. According to their beliefs. LOL.

    The key words here are ¨Chinese 3rd party store¨. Who the hell would connect to something like that? I only download from Apple.

    Poor Masako. I wonder if Prince Naruhito feels guilty for leading her into this sad Japanese royal circle. I would feel so, if my loved one would suffer that much, because she could not be herself anymore.

    Gee, by what you're saying, it's quite a headache to be invited to a wedding like this. Not to mention the protocols and etiquette, which must be very strict.

    @Strangerland: why are you wasting your time, again and again? You know this kind of guy: whatever real facts you show them, they'll never accept them.

    As for Apple Pay, all of a sudden our clients started asking if the cards POS have NFC. I called the supplier of our POS and they said Apple Pay will be available sometime during 2015, or perhaps earlier. Never before we had anyone asking about NFC, but the POS has had the technology ready for more than two years. As usual, Apple had to enter the market to make it work.

    I am highly suspicious about this number. Japanese Customs counts foreign residents - mainly from Asia - who have to exit and return regularly in order to have their ¨tourism¨ visa validated again and again. I think more than half of this number is made of these ¨tourists¨.

    Quite the contrary. Apple Pay has started as a smooth ride, tons of videos in Youtube praising it. All major news outlets tested it and gave them lavish reviews. Of course, there are the losers - like the ones bending their iPhones on their butts - who are never satisfied. There are reports of double purchases, but it happens with CC as well. The ones I read, it was a fault on the side of the seller, not the iPhone.

    Just got the iPhone 6 4.7, it's awesome!! That said, I don't see the need of having an iPad if you have the iPhone 6 Plus, or even the 6. What works great for me is the iPhone 6 plus the MacBook Air. IMO, Apple killed the iPad when it released the two 6s.

    I am not claustrophobic, but I don't think I would feel at ease riding at 500kph buried 50m beneath surface.

    FIA is the FIFA os motorsports, they couldn't care less about racers. What really matters to FIA is TV and the sponsors.
