    > 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

    News say it's more than 20 people were killed by the mob so far

    source please, don't go around spreading false rumour. The riot in Vietnam was caused by the opportunists/looters/anti-Vietnam traitors, nothing like China where the riots against Japan corps are orchestrated by the CCP.

    Toby ain't NO Spiderman, he's a good actor, great body for the part, but lacking in personality. Garfield just fits the part perfectly, they seem to be on track more with the characters and I liked how they finally got it right between Peter and Gwen and the old "web shooters" he built.

    Tobey is better as an actor. TBH I like the Sam Rami's Spiderman version- Spidey has a life too. The new reboots are your typical soulless action flicks.

    Except that OSX never has these major updates like windows, they consistently release new features from year to year, rather than letting a whole bunch build up the releasing new versions like windows.

    In the Windows world, we have these things called Service Packs, yearly or bi-annual and free of charge. A major version change is when there's major changes to the kernel and core services.

    Macs are industry standard for any company doing tech or design work. South Park the tv show creates their episodes in 6 days using Macs out of the box. Any design agency (we work with a few) uses Macs. So your comment really doesn't match with the real world.

    Can do the same thing with a Windows PC and more.

    As compared to your elitist attitude regarding Windows?

    You just proved my point.
