Comment Niche Product (Score 1) 195

As this is such a niche product - I certainly have no interest in it - I guess the price is okay for whoever really needs such a device.

I am still content with my old Kobo touch. The battery life is still okay and it is in great condition considering I take it to work with me every day. If it broke I would almost certainly replace it with a newer Kobo model as I have got such great value from my current one.

I am using Chrome with Adblock Plus on Android. As long as you can change the proxy settings for WiFi and mobile connections (and I can) it works fine. My phone (Sony Xperia Z3) is not even rooted. You have to download it from the Adblock site as Google have blocked it from the Play store.

Comment Khaku & Hatsumde (Score 1) 102

Here in Japan we will stay up and watch the famous singing competition Kohaku on NHK. After a midnight a short walk to the local shrine for Hatsumode - first visit of the year. They always have a big fire at the shrine and it's nice to get warm after spending a long time queuing to get in. No fireworks here.

Comment Drink (Score 1) 570

I stopped drinking soda years ago. Very rarely touch juice either. I don't see what is healthy about juice. I only drink bottled water when I am out and about and in need of a drink. Occasionally spending 100 JPY on a bottle of icy water from a vending machine does not seem too excessive given the summers here in Japan.
