Mar 20 Future bright for LED bulbs (Yomiuri)
 Falling prices and the growing variety of light-emitting diode bulbs are fueling a rapid move in this country away from energy-inefficient incandescent light bulbs and toward LED bulbs, which last longer and consume less energy. Support from the government, which is strengthening its efforts to battle global warming, also is spurring the move toward LEDs. Toshiba Corp. is making a particularly visible shift to LED bulbs.

Mar 19 Millions drawn to 'tweeting' / Crucial to confirm authorship as even politicians use Twitter service (Yomiuri)
 Twitter, a free microblogging service that lets users send and read "tweets"--messages up to 140 characters long--around the world, is quickly becoming popular in Japan. Some people, however, are using the system under false names, and the question of how to confirm authorship has become a crucial issue. Since the Japanese version of Twitter was launched in April 2008, more than 4.7 million people have registered with the service. Twitter first appeared in May 2006 in the United States. Even politicians are using Twitter. Internal Affairs and Communications Minister Kazuhiro Haraguchi, for example, once posted as many as 70 tweets over two days after a major earthquake in Chile late last month.

Mar 18 Sony Struggles With Poor Sales of the PSP Go (PC World)
 When Sony launched its PSP Go last year the company had high hopes. The device was supposed to help PlayStation Portable shipments increase by almost a million units for the year and spearhead Sony's digital download push into the portable gaming market. But things haven't gone according to plan. The PSP Go is both smaller and lighter than the original PSP and represents the first major refresh of the portable gaming platform since it was introduced in 2004.
Mar 15 'Therapeutic ringtones' for mobile phones create a buzz in Japan (Times Online)
 "Well . . . I can definitely feel a bit of adrenalin," says Yukari Sendo, savouring the mobile phone ringtone like a fine wine, "but it really doesn't make me want to do any housework." She flicks through a menu of alternative tunes and settles on one that offers to improve her skin tone through the power of alpha-waves. Ms Sendo and her friend Ayaka Wakabayashi are among an army of young Japanese drawn to the allure of "therapeutic ringtones" - a genre of melodies that promises to ease a range of day-to-day gripes, from chronic insomnia to a rotten hangover. Japan is no stranger to bizarre phone fads but the popularity of the ringtones is perhaps surprising given the flimsiness of the science behind them.

Mar 11 Japanese 'mosquito' reveals your date's real age (weirdasianews.com)
 Japan is famous for producing tiny electronic devices with, shall we say, unique purposes. In the past, we've seen devices for helping women understand the minds of men and making sure you take the right amount of bites when eating. Now, the latest electronic novelty making headlines in Japan promises to help you tell if your date is telling the truth about their age. The concept is simple. As people age, their hearing tends to diminish. One of the first signs of age-related hearing loss is the inability to hear very high pitched noises.
