Panasonic e-book reader

We all dream with the day that some company would create a GOOD e-book reader , with a nice screen, long battery duration, that could read lots of formats (open formats included) and a with nice shape/size/design. A long time ago I tried librie from Sony, and from my point of view it faild because it was too big and you could only read closed formats (typical Sony style).

Panasonic has launched his e-book reader a while ago but is not a killer. The batteries only last 6 hours!, it’s too thick and pretty expensive. At least it has a good screen and it allows JPEG reproduction from SD cards without any limitation. It doesn’t read PDFs, and if you wanna get books that are not JPEGs you need to download/pay Panasonic propietary files from some websites they built with partners.

Ion generators

In Japan it seems that they love anything that “generates” ions. Ion generator gadgets are supposed to be improving the quality of the air that you breath by generation positive or negative ions. You can even select your preference in many of them! In my office we have two of them, the office ladies working with me love them, but when I ask them “What is an ion?” they look at me with a funny ignorance/who cares face.


Standard purifier.


For your car.


For your face. You have to move it around your face everyday and it will improve your skin.


Ions only for men! WTF
