Here’s a cell phone for your luddite friends. It has only one feature. It makes/takes phone calls. There’s no display, nothing. Dial, Pickup or Hangup.
The piqued my interest so I checked out the site. It’s a service that tracks what you are listening to. It does this with plugins for iTunes, WMP, Winamp, etc. What’s the point? Well:
Rank Kingdom (ランク王国) is this program I enjoy that ranks random stuff. Every week they cover the top selling comics, games and videos but they also have just completely random stuff. This week for example they had top concerts of 2004, top jigsaw puzzles, top famous people that would best to appear on the new Japanese currency and finally this:
彼にとって二番目 which translated basically means, “I am his #2 girl”.
Hmmm, I can see myself reporting on random trivia now that I’m watching that trivia program but anyway, according to the Japan National Institute of Population and Social Secruity Research the average number of kids born per couple is 1.2. Computing out, if it says the same there will only be 27 people left in Japan in the year 3000.
