    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.

    I recommend Dell Venue 8 Pro. It's a great machine and runs everything you throw at it

    > They don't eat at MacDonalds They have developed immunity

    Don't you see his sarcasm? Chinese citizens are suffering from food poisoning too.

    And who the heck buys meat at Walmart to begin with?

    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?

    Seriously, who's foolish enough to buy an overpriced Samsung Android tablet? Find a used Surface Pro or a Vaio Duo/Flip and call it a day.

    Sony was an incredible innovator in their day and continue to make high quality products, BUT they cannot touch Samsung for innovation today.

    I beg to differ. Sony was, is, and will be the driving force of consumer electronics technology.

    Samsung is the world’s second-largest recipient of U.S. patents

    Ain't they having a law suit with Apple over patents? Admittedly, those patents are as ridiculous as those American officials granted those stupid patents.

    Samsung and LG are the leaders in smart home electronics

    Like? The first smart TV dated back to some time in early 80s, in Europe. And smart home is not something new. Better ask the Japanese- they are masters in the field.

    give credit where credit's due

    It's you who never gave up bashing Japanese products. I will say this again, selling more doesn't mean better. It's because of price, marketing and such.

    As for me, my family is still using Japanese appliances that we bought 10 years ago or so. They are still working well, no reason to buy new ones.

    ten years ago, yes, most definitely. Have another dip into the market it's very different. LG and Samsung are real innovators and now drive the TV industry with high quality

    Citation please? what innovations? People bought Samsung and LG because they are cheap.

    Cost, cost ,cost too expensive, and as others have pointed out the same can be bought a lot cheeper. It's not the 80s any more other countries are producing products that are cheeper and if not better on parr with J products.

    I'm sorry, comparing Sony/Panasonic to Samsung/LG is just as ridiculous as comparing a BMW to a Kia.

    Angry Japanese need to be able to see things as they are

    I'm not Japanese FYI. I don't care about JPY or $ or wages. What I care about in this article is that Sony will make a comeback with its superior technology and live up to its spirit. Making wonderful gadgets is what they used to do, and they have been doing now after a decade sleeping. Go Sony!

    And leave the economy to Abe and his bureau, as if you have any ideas either.

    If you didn't live in Japan you would be aware there are much better TV's available - Samsung and LG make the best TV's.

    Oversaturated, falsely calibrated colors?? Yes, if you prefer inferior products go buy Samsungs or LGs.

    I frequently buy Sony products for they are cheap. In the US, Korean products are too expensive. More money printing is needed in Japan, indirectly lowering Japanese wages, so that they can compete with Korean products. Japanese electronic products need to be significantly cheaper than Korean products to overcome inferiority in quality.

    I try not to be rude here, but I did throw Samsung junks out of my house. Inferiority? What a laugh.

    L to the O to the L!

    Right back at you

    Dismantling the coast guard seems like a massive bureaucratic mess waiting to cost the tax payers in Korea millions of tax dollars, just repainting ships would cost tons of money.

    Bingo!!! Park is a real opportunist, she - Prove that she's a responsible politician. Seriously? - Reforming the coast guard need money. Now she can find a perfect excuse to clear traces of embezzlement

    Bravo, Pres. Park. More joyful tear please
