cool vs. ….

is thinness really a trend? i met no one who can explain why they want

a phone which is thin. yet its a strong ‘trend’ driven by many

companies. it is true that its an ultimate tech showoff.

in china – i hear korean manufacturers are considered to be cool –

they succeeded in creating this high end image. i think i could

understand why.

pictured is the samsung mobile ad featuring the popular korean movie

star (jihyun chun), comparing a range of 3 thin phones.

ready to go

cant wait to be back in tokyo..

but now prepared to leave for the airport and have a telco in the taxi

on the way – i hope:

the taxi wouldnt stink

the taxi driver wouldnt turn the radio too loud (chinese radio shows

can be really really noisy, i learned)

the taxi is new enough so that i can close/open windows freely
