suggestion to Brian Chen of

To Brian Chen of the polite thing to do, after mis-representing two sources (Nobi Hayashi and Daiji Hirata) whom you have never met, would be to APOLOGIZE and fix the mess.
This “Here’s why I didn’t ‘screw up’ and nothing is ‘inaccurate’:” stuff on your Tumblelog is a bunch of spin trying to justify piss-poor reporting.
If you think anyone in technology in Japan will take any questions from you in the future after this kind of bridge-burning, you’re sadly mistaken.
Turning off comments on that particular article was also weak, not to mention the fact that your tumblelog has no comments either.

Funny Gizmo Internet Japan Macintosh mobile video

promoting iPhone in Japan

Softbank’s comic commercials to promote their mobile service are now promoting the iPhone in Japan with Aya Ueto and Dante Carver and the rest of the White Family clan.

More background on this series here:
Shiba SoftBank Ads – Part I
More Shiba SoftBank Ads (ホワイト家族24)
Shiba SoftBank Ads – Part 3
and finally
Shiba SoftBank Ads – Part 4
You have to understand Japanese to get all the jokes. Suffice it to say that Steve Jobs doesn’t use a white Shiba-inu to promote the iPhone anywhere else in the world.

Internet Macintosh

this week went by too fast

Some links of note…

  • What I Learned at (Mashup) Camp: There was one common denominator, however: JavaScript. Nearly everyone was using it in some capacity, and one or two applications were nearly 100% JavaScript.
  • Apple pushing Safari downloads on Windows users: It now appears that the Cupertino-based company aspires to use the advantage presented by the Software Update mechanism to muscle its way further up the browser charts at the expense Microsoft’s Internet Explorer and other third-party Windows browsers.

I want a Penryn Macbook Pro too

I’m with Wes Felter.


lost my Airport

For those of us Mac-users, the recent Apple Security Update 2007-009 v1.1 has created a lot of havoc on users’ machines. After I installed the security update, I restarted the machine and lost access to my Airport wireless card. I took a chance and decided to “reset the PRAM”, or reset the MacBook Pro System Management Controller, and my Airport wireless came back as usual.
