    I've read a little on the subject of Japanese society (The Chrysanthemum and the Sword is good) and visited a few times. I don't have a complete answer, but a couple of points people haven't made yet are:

    - Japan is racially and culturally quite pure - with low immigration and a high barrier for immigrants to integrate (the language). Japanese language and culture is not widely spread outside of Japan. This leads to them having a very inward focus, and a high amount of loyalty to their own society. As a Westerner/English speaker, you could disgrace yourself in your own society, yet still find a happy home somewhere culturally similar. For a Japanese person there is no other home - if they disgrace themselves to their fellow Japanese, they risk being ostracised from everything they hold dear. (This is the reasoning given in TCANS for the low surrender rate of Japanese troops in war - a Western army will surrender with 30% dead, for the Japanese 90%+ would have to die, since to surrender would be to disgrace oneself and become ostracised. This is the same reasoning for the Japanese army's poor treatment of prisoners of war in WWII - as the social standing of one who surrenders is very low).

    - Having transgressed, Japanese society is happy to throw the book at a suspected criminal - and extends few of the rights arrestees enjoy in the West. Prisoners can be held for 23 days before being charged, the legal system assumes guilt and police have traditionally interrogated in private. When a case reaches trial, there's a >98% conviction rate, and trials have until very recently (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/asia-pacific/8181225.stm) all be Judge-only trials (no jury). There's evidence that lenient Judges face career setbacks.

    So yes, the Japanese people may be educated, moral, disciplined - but there are also very strong societal pressures to conform, and if a person did loot, they'd expect to be treated extremely severely.

    My MacBook Pro is having horrible wake from sleep issues i.e. it woke up inside my backpack on more than one occasion. Nothing worse then an already hot notebook trapped inside a backpack surrounded by neoprene. (I double pack it for extra impact protection; and never realized how much heat could be trapped if something went wrong.)

    If this isn't resolved now I'm going to have to continue to shut down before I take it to and from school.

    I think this looks great. But I'd rather a second, touch-sensitive screen than a physically altered section. That could be what they use for the video iPod and even the iPhone. the examples of a musical keyboard and faders are great, obviously it wouldn't be as good as using the real things, but they would sure beat using a normal laptop keyboard for such functions IMHO. I like the normal keyboard + changable area look - e.g the trackpad would go, being replaced by one of the various changeable areas.

    COULD YOU EXPLAIN IT PLEASE?

    Mind you, he is referring to the MacBook. I would expect iMacs to run cooler.

    Ahh, that makes sense.
    I have no problems with Sleep issues or Booting...Should I really run the firmware update? I really don't want my system running any hotter then it already does.

    First I wasnted to thank everyone who has posted advice and comments about my temple surface piercing.

    So with the help of the advice from the people in this forum, regaurding finding a new piercer and swap out the bananabell for a surface bar for my anti-brow temple piercing.

    I did a little research about surface piercing and what causes them to fail
    (which I should have done first before getting pierced, but anyways)

    I noticed today that my piercing wasnt exactly happy, a bit tight, so I went down to a more local piercer in Mountain View, CA at Fatty Zone to get a check up to make sure everything was fine. The piercer was out for the till Monday, but the owner said that it looked as if the lower ball was starting to get sucked in. (great) He recommended that I go down to Pierce Ink, where he had sent his piercer (From Fatty Zone) to get trained.>>(Seperate Note) I had stopped in earlier that week and talked to the piercer about piercing my webbing, he said no, and took the time to explain to me why he would not pierce it and why it isnt a good area to pierce. For him to say no, refuse my money, and inform me, I am very grateful for.

    I went down to Pierce Ink in San Jose CA, as I pulled up everyone was having a smoke, and we chatted a bit about my piercing, surface bars, gauge, and Zebra Tattoo and Piercing.
    As it turns out I was the third person that week that had a surface piercing done at Zebra and came down to have their piercing salvaged because Zebra used the wrong jewelry. I also heard horror stories reguarding botched tounge piercings (personal horror story of one of the piercers who had it done at Zebra) , cleanliness issues etc. Anyways, I got the bananabell swapped out of a surface bar with discs.

    http://homepage.mac.com/neildmitchell/Piercing_Update.jpg

    The piercer(s) were very helpful, knowledgeabe, and professional, they too will also refuse to pierce certain areas.

    So anyways, I salvaged an almost botched surface piercing. I still have a long healing process, so we will see if it gets rejected eventually or not.

    1) Dont get pierced on a whim, from any old place, do your research (jewelery, techniques, reputation)

    2) If a piercer tells you NO and explains why, trust them, dont go running off to a piercer who will pierce you where others wont.

    3) Slam bad piercers or piercing businesses

    4) Promote the Good Piercers

    Save people from getting bad pierce jobs (or worse), and keep good piercers employed.

    GOOD PIERCERS

    1)
    Fatty Zone (Trained at Pierce Ink)

    3) (from Moe http://profile.myspace.com/13706036)
    Industrial Strenth Tattoo and Piercing.

    The piercer (Todd) is very helpful, takes his time to make sure he measures you to the best of his ability. He gives you ALL info possible and his business card and tells you to call if you have ANY questions at all. This place is the most helpful, knowledable, and people friendly shop that i have ever been to.

    BAD PIERCER

    Zebra
    2467 Telegraph Ave
    Berkeley, CA 94704
    (510) 649-8002
    (not knowledgeable no consultation, used wrong jewerly, cheap jewelry, sanitation)

    I am sure that there are plenty of people out there who have gotten great piercings from Zebra, but after my expierience I view them as bad.

    Slam Bad Piercers Promote Good Piercers (or tattoo artists etc)

    I'd much rather read a Jobs biography and Apple history told by his employees.

    I think there's a ton of hidden history and unsung heroes who will remain anonymous as long as Jobs is alive.

    Guess I won't be telling tonight....

    But anyways what I did have,

    EVGA X58 SLI LE
    6gb(3x 2gb) Corsair XMS3
    500gb(was in the process of cloning to a 75gb WD Raptor)
    2x GTX 460 768mb (OC shader)
    Windows 7

    hmm, i think i have that same motherboard.

    If I was folding (don't see the point. I tried it for a few days and didn't see the point.), I'd be using this computer I built back in Jan '10.

    Antec 900 two
    4GB 1333 ddr3 RAM
    Gigabyte P55A - UD3
    GTX 260 892MB
    1TB HDD

    Been able to hit 3.8Ghz without changing the voltage very much. Maybe 1.25v. Didn't see the need to overclock just to see Facebook. Stock speeds are plenty fast for me now. Might bring it up gradually.

    I hardly use that computer though, after I got my MBP :(

    well the point of folding is to help scientists research cures for diseases, like cancer. please tell me why you think there's no point in that?

    Every time I hear a rumor or some news about the white iPhone (and oh my, there have been plenty - "It's coming, it's coming") I always think about when I was like 9 years old and my uncle, to get me out of his hair, used tell me to stay guard at the edge of the camp site and keep a look out for "snipe." Man how I waited and waited . . .

    I'm getting the feeling that the white iPhone is our version of the ever elusive "snipe." We'll laugh about it, talk about it, but never really ever get a chance to actually see one. Oh well.

    First, let me say that I think that there is a big issue with the iPhone 4 antenna, and I do think that Apple should do a recall (a voluntary one). I also think that Apple did a bad job handling the situation.

    That being said don't you think that there was indeed a misrepresentation of the signal strength going in on with iOS 4.0 that was fixed with 4.0.1 that was exaggerating the problem? What if people that were able to go from 5 bars to 0 simply by touching the "forbidden place" were actually supposed to see 2/3 bars dropping to 0 instead?

    Despite all the mistakes Apple made in this iPhone 4 snafu, I think it's fair that they address the fact that the problem was exaggerated by a misrepresentation of signal bars. (assuming that it's a fact)

    What if you made a mistake and something made it look much worse than it is, wouldn't you want to show everyone that it's not as bad as it looked like? Even if it's your fault and that the mistake is still bad in itself?

    Anti-Semitism is generally quite swiftly and harshly dealt with in this country (and rightly so). It's a shame such an attitude towards prejudice is not more evenly applied when it comes to other groups.

    I think Israel deserves quite a lot of criticism, as does the pro-Israeli lobby. Criticism of these two entities is not tantamount to anti-Semitism. Also, much what Thomas says echoes sentiments being expressed accross the Middle East on a daily basis. She is Lebanese, and Israel's track record with Lebanon is pretty shameful. Right or wrong, this stuff is not necessarily coming out of the blue. With that being said, some of Thomas' statements and language came across as very reckless at best.

    I don't think they should add cut and paste because it's metaphorically confusing (and they never will add it for this reason), but a Path Finder-like drop stack (which is essentially the same thing, but with visual cues) would be very nice.

    A Path Finder-like split view is would also be very handy for moving files.

    The OS doesn't need built-in social media integration. There are plenty of twitter clients, and the official Facebook Notifications menu bar item is fine.

    @300D: your conclusion about X1900GT is based on PC world scores. In Mac OS performance is more driver and app dependent. Most of barefeats benches (gaming) are pointing that 7800 is faster than X1900GT, esp. in higher resolutions. 7800GTX 512MB (flashed) has 8 pipes more and twice RAM than X1900GT (24 vs 16).
