    People are people, but the Jihadists don't belong in that category. And who right now can compare to groups like ISIS, Al Qaeda, Hezbollah, Boko Haram, Hamas seriously, who?

    Answer: the state of Israel, only that it has US support, thus it makes it look legit.

    Let's be honest: kanjis are losers in the language field. Chinese characters are more than 5,000 years old and they haven't become the lingua franca one could expect, given that Chinese culture has been appreciated by almost every other country. Only China, Japan and 3 or 4 can understand these things, that take time to be learnt and are useless outside Northeastern Asia. On the other hand take other languages such as English, Spaniss - no comments necessary to show how they are internationally understood languages, and, thank God, are written in a logical way than billions of people from different countries can relate to, the latin alphabet. As I lived in Japan for a long time I see now that learning kanji was not that smart. Of course, you can use it when searching a job related to these two countries and show off to friends how their kanji tattoo is wrongly written. But if I had used the time to learn, say, advanced math, it would be more useful now. I think Chinese characters should be treated as a form of art, an ancient and dead one. And both coutries should follow Turkey's succesfull example.

    @YuriOtani: It is business. Why would Airbus deliver two aircrafts that have not the prospect of being paid? For friendship, because Japanese can't lose face?? Call it a joke. And your analysis is totally wrong, do some research.

    Rousseff is the Latino version of Abe: economy can't get worse than this, but she keeps saying that Brazil is a paradise second only to Disneyland. In short: two professional egocentric liars. Well, that's politics after all.

    Bottom line: if you have something to hide, do not use a smartphone. No matter what brand.

    Ugh, no.

    The first one was enough.

    Have some fun, man! If you don't like it, then just don't go to the movies. I enjoyed Godzilla 2014 a lot.

    Ah yes, shift the focus, it is the eco system and not individual products anymore, it's what apple does best, marketing.

    Cherry picking at its worst. Back to the news: it's understable that iPads sales are slow, given what iPhones can do.

    Great for Germany, now we'll see all the bandwagon soccer 'fans' throughout the world completely forget about soccer until the next world cup (Americans, cough cough).

    Every time I read an unsportman comment like this from an American citizen, what comes to my mind is "complex of inferiority". What better defense to your hurt ego than to attack somebody else's happiness?

    Congratulations to Germany. I may say that Brazilians, and I presume the rest of the world that appreciates football, fell in love with them.

    I am not used to other OSses, but isn't this feature - or a variation - common to Windows phone, BBs and Androids?

    No one can deny that this edition of the World Cup was dramatic and full of ups and downs.

    This defeat to Germany shook Brazilians so hard it's going to affect the next Presidential election in October. President Rousseff was counting on a victory to boost her campaign, riding along the feel good factor. Watch the final tomorrow, very probably you'll witness Brazilians fans chanting very dirty words to Rousseff, if she dares going to Maracana.

    Most Brazilians I am friends with are rooting for Germany, not because Argentina is their arch-rival in the field. The reason is that despite losing that historic game to the Germans, they can appreciate the beatiful game that Germany is playing in this World Cup. No wonder that despite the defeat, Germans are said to be the most admired team and German fans are delighted to discover that Brazilians are siding with them.

    Brazil needs a lesson in sportsmanship from Japan

    Sure, both countries have a lot to learn from each other: Brazil to be more constrict when showing emotions. Japanese to be more expansive.

    I am in Brazil, here's what is happening:

    *total disbelief. As if a flying saucer had landed in front of TV cameras. *people are either crying or laughing. Crying for the obvious reason. The laughter comes from the ones who objected this multi-billion waste of money. *there's no rioting right now. But, little by little, people are leashing out against the government and President Rousseff. I do expect violent protesting episodes AFTER the World Cup is over. *Brazilian TVs are showing that fans realise that Germany was superior in every way possible and they deserved to win. But what they can't understand is the unbelievable score. *I live near Sao Paulo, people canceled parties and barbecues. Looks like a national funeral. *things can get ever worse if Holland defeats Argentina tomorrow and on Saturday Brazil is massacred, again, by their natural soccer enemy.

    I personally think that Germany was superb. Congratulations to their players. That's what efficiency is all about. The ultimate lesson on team management.

    As I am in Brazil I can say that you guys are overreacting to everything with your silly comments. Chill out, Neymar will be fine, and Zuniga is safe and sound.

    The iwatch will most likely only be compatible with apple products and is therefore rendered useless for the majority. Apple also puts much emphasis on health and sports related functions...how many people care about their heart rate BMI etc, nice to have but again useless for the majority.

    I can't understand your whining. If you want a smartwatch for the "majority" of users, then there's at least 6 models out there, just pick one and stop crying. Peeble, for one, is compatible for both iOS and Android and has a nice design. Of course Apple's watch will be dedicated to iOS only, this is Apple strategy and has been working for years.
