    I don't care about same-sex marriage is legal or not, but please keep it to themselves. Do not use the public appearance to misdirect the normal kids. Let me remind you, being gay can be from birth or can be sociological. The latter is worrying.

    I am pacifist, but I fully support Japan to rearm herself. Simply because Asia needs Japan to stand up against China, no one else could.

    Well, Hyundai = Honda.

    LOL, wait till Hyundai makes something half as good as an S2000, let alone the NSX

    get Samsung's LCD screens to rebrand as Sony display panels and TV's.

    You just proved that you don't know jacks. Sony bought the panels, but they used their own processing/rendering technologies. That's why while different TV brands source almost the same 3 or 4 LCD panels from original panel manufacturer, but Sony still comes out on top in terms of displaying quality.

    @smith: Do you homework before discussion please. The Sony-Ericsson P900 series PDAs were popular among professionals long long before crApple or Samsung. They failed to market these devices to ordinary consumers. Apple did a good job to advertise, I give them that, but they didn't bring anything new to the table. Same goes for Samsung, most of their phones prior to 2007 were direct copies of the Japanese counterparts.

    Now on to cars. Japan did not invent cars, it improved them. Japanese cars are reliable and inexpensive, that's why they are so popular around the world. Yet there are fun JDM cars as well. No one can argue against an NSX or S2000.

    are you working for Google or another company in self driving technology

    Nope, I'm in university, doing computer vision & human-machine interaction. The current tech is not reliable is enough, that's the truth. Don't trust youtube videos, they are only showing best results on some scenarios. DoD has developed autonomous vehicles for a couple of decades and still we haven't seen the fruits, Google can't do anything better.

    ^ Google is trying to PR their image as a complete Tech company. But sorry, I'm working in the field myself and I would never trust a fully autonomous vehicle with my life, not with the current tech and how things work.

    Hold on guys, - Skype is working, if you use Microsoft Outlook on a web browser. - Skype used to be peer-2-peer, but has switched to centralized model since last year to overcome the drawback of p2p (both sides have to be online) - Skype on Windows 8/Windows phone acts as system service so you can receive incoming call regardless of what you are doing, just as a regular phone call. - Still don't get the point of this, kind of redundant.

    I'm sure Google glass will one day be looked back at as an idea ahead of it's time.

    The idea has been there since the 70s. The realization by Google is not good, that's why it hasn't caught on.

    Sony glasses are Augmented Reality glasses, while the GooGlasses are HUD-like so there's no comparison. In a sense, Sony glasses are the true smart glasses from sci-fi. Get the facts right people. Go Sony!

    For those of us with USA based credit cards, Apple Pay is worth it! My number has been stolen twice, just my number! Jerks spent $2,000 in Pennsylvania one time, all over the second time. Cost me nothing but problems, but the merchant lost that money. I won't wait in line that long, but Apple Pay will make me buy my first iPhone.

    Let them hack your hard earned money away from you then

    Another row of icons!!!! -- sorry I couldn't help it.

    Anyway, people saying MACs are good is just totally bogus. Any Thinkpads pre-2008 will crush any MACs, and VAIO Z-series is on a total other league. Panasonic Toughbooks are of different beast. Buy high-end PCs and compare them to MACs please, don't tell me you bought some cheap $300 laptop then judged PC sucks.

    This is old news. Honda FCX Clarity has been running on the roads for 7-8 years I believe. Glad to see one more automaker following the way

    they carry ak47

    as rifles go, AK47s are more suitable in harsh environments and easy to maintain, that's why. But if you look further I bet vehicles, rockets etc. are USA made.

    Afghanistan was a safer place when the Taliban was in control

    everyone knows, but Bush and the weapon industries. How could they sell their goods otherwise?
