This is how a smart watch should really be designed: Not a terminal on your wrist, but a real, regular watch, with extra connectivity bits if or when you need it. With physical (easy to read) dials and an 8-month battery life.

I'm a little tempted, though I wonder how much point there is in tracking your steps if you don't wear the same watch every day.

Vissa behöver inte alla avancerade funktioner smartklockor i regel erbjuder utan är istället ute efter ett enkelt sätt att mäta den dagliga motionen på. Smartphones kan naturligtvis användas för det ändamålet, inte minst genom Google Fit, men det kräver att telefonen alltid bärs på kroppen och att batterislukande sensorer är aktiva. Franska Withings har skapat …

Actually, I cannot find a real reason for having a smartwatch over a smartband. My MIBand lasts more than a month with a single charge, and it costed me 15€.
I could consider a better and costly band with more sensor and no more than a E-ink display, if I start to do fitness regularly.
Actually I don't even use a regular watch anymore, the smartphone made it obsolete. And sincerely I dont' need another stressing source of notifications :)
So the looking factor IMHO could be the main reason to have a smartwatch. Some are really beatiful, but this come at a cost of daily recharges, which is stressing too :)

The Toyo Rubber company manufactures rubber seismic isolation bumpers used in building foundations. Turned out recently that they'd faked testing data to get approval for some substandard products. A couple of hundred buildings have been using these faulty bumpers, and now face costly renovations.

And now they've discovered that the affected buildings include the new, still under construction headquarters of the Toyo Rubber company...

So after a couple of great spring days it's colder again, it's raining, and my code is so full of bugs even the bugs have bugs. I believe this calls for curry-udon today.

+Glenn Phillips I've been trying to talk them into upgrading the menu for years with no luck.

Fortunately, there is an amazing tonkatsu place also in easy distance from work, so I'm covered.  

+Jan Moren  Absolutely, home cooked meals are actually pretty good on the whole, and between smaller portions and better choices the set meals aren't bad either.  Not to mention the easy availability of very healthy options like udon and soba shops.  On the whole, if you absolutely must rely on "fast food" Japanese fast food is head and shoulders over what we had to choose from back home.  But it always amazes me to hear people gush over "Japanese diet" and then look over at what colleagues have in their bentos and what they order by preference at the lunch places.  A miracle diet it is not.

Never shall I speak of the dark roads and twisted alleyways through the internet that led me to this rendering of Monkey Island on the ukulele.

Now I desperately want an ukulele of my own. Fortunately for my wife's sanity, the feeling will likely pass by the time I go home. Likely.

In case it doesn't, these ( http://www.magicfluke.com/ ) are reasonably-priced, durable, and pretty enough to leave out on top of the piano (you know: alongside the tin whistles).

Janne. In Osaka.
Introduction
From Sweden, but I've been living in Osaka for nine years. I've worked in cognitive science, neuroscience and robotics.

I am affiliated with Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology, but placed at the RIKEN Advanced Institute of Computing Science in Kobe, where I work on a project to model the subcortical motor-related areas in order to better understand the physiological effects of Parkinsons disease.

Bragging rights
Spent a summer in grad school building a trebuchet instead of doing any actual work.

Very good Thai restaurant, less adapted to Japanese taste than most. The seating is not terribly comfortable, though, and the bathroom is Japanese style only.

Good, solid chain cafe. Second floor is open and spacious with lots of small tables. Usually not crowded, so it's a good spot for working or studying.

My favourite omuraisu restaurant. The place is in a slightly seedy part of Namba, south of Amemura on the "wrong" side of Midosuji avenue, but the restaurant itself has a very calm, pleasant and slightly old-fashioned vibe that feels more high-class than you'd expect from an omuraisu place. Plenty of tourists; on one hand you won't feel out of place as a visitor (and there's English menus available too), but on the other, you are as likely to rub shoulders with a fellow tourist as with a local. Some people dislike it, others are comforted by it of course. The omuraisu itself is very, very good. I've had several varieties and they've all been tasty. I especially like the mushroom-sauce variants. Plenty of food, but there's set meals and a fair assortment of side dishes to pick from as well if you want (fried shrimp always goes well).

Pleasant ramen place with traditional decor but a modern take on the food. The soup is very thick with more than a hint of sweetness. The noodles are pleasantly chewy. Japanese-style toilet.

Good vietnamese food. The lunches, especially, are well worth it. The basement in an old building can feel just a little like a dining hall at times, but the cool and dim atmosphere is very welcome on hot summer days.
