My local tv station is not ready
Last night my local tv station said they need a bigger tower and bigger power station. They apologize in advance because many may not able to get their station...
Why rush to shut down analog... ?
Link to Japan sales number 07/28 to 08/03
Sales number here, not pretty for XBOX360, very good for PSP.
Japan's number 7/21 to 7/27
According to Famitsu Magazine: (after MG4 craze)
Anyone has Europe's number.
Sino-Tasmanian War ? I am really interested in this. Anyone can provide a link, a book, or anything? Thank you.
"Apple's has grabbed 6.6 per cent of the desktop market in the US during Windows Vista's lifetime."
Was that usually about 10 per cent? Apple's share is shrinking?
Wrong business model
I had high hope for miniDisc - small, fairly good sound, good battery life. I can't understand why so expensive - it could be a huge success, if, only if, Sony used the business "give away razor, profit from blade". Oh, well, rest in peace, rest in pieces, my once beloved Sony.
If good enough...
I had a couple of smart phones from China. Cheap and good, but battery life is usually very sad...
Pretty and Stupid
When one showed off iPhone, he got a Wow; when his friends found out the contract locked into, he got WOOWs. It's quite amusing. You got the bragging right; and your friends got the right calling you stupid behind your back.
I got one for a few weeks. The little thing is actually very lovely, no bulk of notebook, more functional than nokia tablet. Please don't make it bigger and heavier - it won't compete with a regular notebook.
"Kids want one"
To me, Will is the machine "Kids want one". It is so successful, also worrisome. Kids can play same game again and again, kids don't really need a lot of new games - they play with their friends, same game but different fun each time. Teenagers and "Peter Pan" adults are different stories - they have their own money, they want new games. Wii is not fad, but how many games will it move? Nintendo's own games (big name games) generate huge sales, but it's not exactly a happy story for third party developers.
Let people choose
Let people choose, please. Some will like to pay less, let them have ad floating in their phone; other will pay full price to avoid them. I hope Nokia give people choice.
Why not jam it?
A jamming device can do so, if ringing is THAT bad in the courtroom. Does anyone know whether jamming is illegal in US?
"Porn ?" People stream it from internet now. It's not "THE factor" in the old days.
PS3 helps, helps a lot. If you have one at home, it sometimes will change your decision buying regular DVD - $5 to $10 more for a better looking movie, why not (sometimes anyway)?
New recording, please.
How many times can your fans buy the same CD? You don't have new recording, you don't get many new fans. Do your part first, please.
Shortage for Wii is myth
Friends (from Canada, German, Hong Kong, Japan and Taiwan) said they have no trouble getting a Wii in store. Not sure why reported shortage in UK and USA. Nintendo's old marketing trick since NES? (I remember Nintendo suddenly found a few million units just before X'mas.)
Can upcoming French version be cloned? If so, no need to worry about re-lock by almighty Apple.
Did QVC try to bill her?
It's very curious how this thing is wire fraud? Did QVC try to bill her?
And, what is customers' obligation if QVC sent items which were cancelled? Amazon once sent me a wrong item (worths $7.99), I emailed them (they said they will email a return label, but they didn't); I called them (they said they will email a return label, but they didn't); they wanted the stuff back, but they never email me a return label. It's more than one year, the item is still in my garage, what should I do?
iTunes 7 kills
iTunes was good..., until I updated to 7. It does not recognize cd burner, refuse to transfer anything to my iPod... Now my worst fear comes ture, I knew it could be trouble to begin with... I need to move everything to other computers. No, I rather have drag' n' drop.
Wait and see
We really need to wait another to see whether it reaches planned height. Taipei 101 was taller when blue-printed; I don't remember actual measurement, but it was shorter than its design. (Same situation happened to China's tallest building.) Maybe when measured in the winter, cold weather caused certain shrinkage...
