    Well, reports are saying that Cubans in USA are angry at Obama - what they really wanted was a change in Cuban ruling. Democracy, that is. It was about time, it made no sense to keep relations with China and not with Cuba.

    I agree that we should not see her life thru pink glasses - but that's exactly one of the reasons I admire her: her free will to submit herself to, perhaps, the most heinous royal house in the world, not to mention her mother-in-law, who was said to be not a nice person at all . All in the name of love. That's why she is so graceful - despite being ¨nailed down¨ since marrying the emperor, you can still see a glimpse of happiness in the corner of her gentle eyes. Unlike Masako, unfortunately - who look so sad, so terribly sad. In my opinion, Empress Michiko was ready to face both royal agency and her in-law. Masako was not.

    I didn't understand the advantage of it, what's the difference from, say, Facetime or Skype?

    She's an elegant woman, she represents Japanese women at their best. That's what's empress and queens are for.

    Just watched in on Youtube. From the 1:20s trailler it's hard to tell, but in comparison to a same 1:20s from one of the three first episodes it looks, well, shaky. Very 2010s, the shaky camera. Let's wait and see.

    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.
