as of right now japan is actually UNDER POPULATED. i believe they are paying for, the kids, college tuition for families if they have more then some amount of kids.
they are getting paid to have kids? that settles it, im going to japan once i get out of college, in the mean time, i gotta sign up for japanese language class. I think its like a level 3 or 5 language something like that so its hard as hell to learn. but hey when anime comes out and its not subbed or when you find your self on vacation in japan, your pretty much set. that also means you can read import games too.wootness

I remember is a seeing a sat dish in CPU Magazine that you could set up basically anywhere that would give you 10mbps but is was $70,000 (two years ago) hopefully satellite internet gets more prominent and prices drop. It's a sweet idea compared to buried cables

I believe the Turbinium miners would have something to say about that!

But seriously, that sounds like an interesting idea. It's too bad I'll probably never live to see people on Mars.

Live streaming video calls via cellphones are a 4G technology. We have this technology sure... But we're slow adopters compared to the japanese. Our cell phone companies are reluctant/slow to upgrade networks, especially in underpopulated markets. The japanese are already starting to upgrade their networks to 5G. We're still using 3G tech here. (I work as a cell tech for Verizon)
Also, most of the cell carriers just recently bought the spectrum so they can start moving past 3G. As far as that goes, Expect Verizon and T-mobile to lead the pack. (T-mobile you say!, yep... they dropped a buttload of cash second only to verizon on spectrum freq)
If you want 4G, Expect Verizon and T-mobile to be the first. (T-mobile is owned by Deutsche Telekom, who is huge abroad. Verizon is partially owned by Vodaphone for those interested.)


But then again, Japan is a small country compared to the US and has a denser population per square mile, so the market is fantastic. It's cheaper for them to upgrade and see results (profits) almost immediately. It's also a much different process aquiring new freq over there. That could also be a factor in why they are ahead in the cell tech world...

Densetsu no senshi, relic-da!

Japenese isn't a hard language to learn (verbally), itself is all memorization. The hard part is writing and reading.. I've been learning (taking classes) off an on for almost 10 years now... And I still can't write/read much... Thats been the most difficult part for me. And probably why it's considered a difficult language to learn.

EDIT: Good thing Anime is from Japan... because if it was from China, good luck learning that language(s). Too many dialects for me...
