>>
>>47726146
Difference of culture. They like to stick with things the way they are. They still have fax machines over there as well if I recall right.

I can't really blame them. I'd say since they're getting higher quality video by not streaming shit, owning their products by buying physical and not buying a license to use, and despite their web design being simpler (and sometimes pure ass) they don't have excessive flashy bullshit. I'd say we're more retarded than they are. Some of our banks and businesses still use antiqued systems as well though because they feel no need to shell out when it works. Rightfully so in some ways.

What I find very interesting though is apparently the average Japanese has a smaller home space than a westerner, yet they don't see any value in digital. Might be because the secondhand market is huge in Japan and they can't resell digital goods.

you're thinking of korea.

japan has always been mired in technological obsolescence and byzantine business practices.

japanese tech/auto companies who were state of the art in the '80s and '90s do not reflect on the culture itself

This is actually sensible. I like having physical things too.

For example, with printed books, you can be assured that amazon or whoever won't suddenly decide that they don't want you to have them anymore and remotely delete them from your kindle or whatever.
>>
>>47726146
For them because collecting and displaying collection.

For me, I don't buy ebooks either. There's something about DISCOVERING a book that you didn't know you wanted until you got it. There are older books and those by obscure authors that are only exist in hardcopy form. Delving into a used bookstore and striking gold is part of the experience. Ebooks is about getting more of the same of what you already read.

My dad is the vice president of a small business; every once in a while, he has to send the secretary into the supply closet to dust off the fax machine because some backwater hick company wants to send him a fax.

yes exactly
but these days they have everything they could need on the global market, this includes the internet, devices to connect to it, tuturials on using it

fact is, they're a very traditional people, with grown-ass men in their thirties still worrying about bringing shame to their family by taking up anything as a hobby or pasttime that isn't work raising kids, fucking their wives, so new shit is left in the dirt. Weebs sound common in japan, but astonishingly enough they're more common in the states, we just tend to handle it differently than keeping them well fed and shit, we usually tell them to fucking get a god damned job, no matter how embarrassing they are.

It's pretty easy to have amazing internet speeds when nobody is actually using any bandwidth, and you're all crammed into a giant city.

Japan honestly cannot into technology. Even the US bureaucracy is more high-tech than its Japanese counterpart. They make you fill out paper forms for everything, then just file them away. Their government offices almost look like 50s America, just loads of guys sorting, signing and filing papers.

In the airports, they have Windows 8 computers to use, but they're made to look like 95. Not because it's better, but because it's tradition now.

but japos more than make it up with advanced metallurgy process.

in fact some of their state-of-the-art metal techniques (after ww2) started appearing in their oil and cargo ships
>>
>>47728045
Nah, Japan is honestly a cool place with pretty friendly people and a lot of unique stuff. They have refined just about every non-tech product to be as convenient as possible in a lot of cool, innovative ways (look up Japanese salad dressing packets, it blew my mind).

But their strict gerontocracy and work culture has destroyed their tech scene. The trendsetters of the 70s and 80s are still considered the trendsetters, but they're 50 or 60 years old now and have no fucking clue, but they're still calling the shots.
>>
>>47728112
most of those metal working techniques make up for the fact that they use pig-iron, it's nothing to brag about except to say that they overcame a difficulty

fucking woo but it's an archaic thing these days, you can't even apply those things to regular steel because it's all about carbon content control for most of them, a precise amount of carbon makes the strongest steel, so performing a carbon removal technique on good steel turns it to butter

>They use unsupported Windows OSes, and do banking with it
Bullshit, Windows 7 is by far the most popular OS and Windows XP is still used by millions of people and corporations WORLDWIDE.

>They have websites looking like those from the 90s
NO YOU IDIOT! If a website looks REALLY like something from the 90s it's because it's very likely to BE from the 90s.

Are you implying that rebooting your website every two years, and throwing away most of your old content, and killing your old links, is somehow better? Give me a fucking break.

If you mean webdesign as a whole, then get a fucking clue you dumb hipster. Perhaps the problem is YOU. The idiot who expect EVERY FUCKING WEBSITE to use HTML5, huge blocks with strong contrast, the whole Windows Metro style bullshit.

>They hate ebooks
SO LE OBSLEOTE ROFL XD

>They hate streaming services
So? Plenty of people elsewhere hate those too. Perhaps there's not that many people there who care. Oh wow, how can this be? Why won't those people act like me? How can anyone not like what I like?

>They only like to watch anime on FTA TV.
There's plenty of people who buy the discs or who pirate it. Even if that weren't the case, how on Earth is this a legitimate argument? Is TV so le obsolete now that it should be destroyed because you don't like it? Also, FTA TV IS a kind of streaming service.

>They don't give info for NSA but monitor all their internet and punish people that is torrenting with tough penalties
They're crazy about copyright, so what? How does this prove your point? How is this even relevant? And it happens in the US, the UK and other countries too.
>>
Truth is Japan hasnt been mostly irrelevant in technology for a while now.
Only their automobiles and rice cookers are high-tech.
Most of their "technology" are American or chink status.
Hell, Korea far surpasses them in technological advancement, and is still considered behind compared to the US/EU.
Also, physical formats are more of a novelty purpose for them.
Shit like DVD's/BDs, CDs, figmas and books, etc, are more for a collectors kind of feel more than anything.
Plus, having something physical is much more fulfilling than having something digital anyway.
That being said;
Learn to speak English, construct better sentences/queries, and yes. It's the contrary.
They're retarded, and we are superior. We've been superior for quite some time now, dipshit.
>>
>>47728397
has been mostly irrelevant*
It's late.
>>
>>47726146

Because they are smart consumers and can see through the foreign bullshit

With printed books&manga:

1. You can buy one with cash, anonymously.

2. Then you own it.

3. You are not required to sign a license that restricts your use of it.

4. The format is known, and no proprietary technology is needed to read the book.

5. You can give, lend or sell the book to another.

6. You can, physically, scan and copy the book, and it's sometimes lawful under copyright.

7. Nobody has the power to destroy your book.


Contrast that with Amazon e-books (fairly typical):

1. Amazon requires users to identify themselves to get an e-book.

2. In some countries, including the US, Amazon says the user cannot own the e-book.

3. Amazon requires the user to accept a restrictive license on use of the e-book.

4. The format is secret, and only proprietary user-restricting software can read it at all.

5. An ersatz “lending” is allowed for some books, for a limited time, but only by specifying by name another user of the same system. No giving or selling.

6. To copy the e-book is impossible due to Digital Restrictions Management in the player and prohibited by the license, which is more restrictive than copyright law.

7. Amazon can remotely delete the e-book using a back door. It used this back door in 2009 to delete thousands of copies of George Orwell's 1984.

>hey, wanna buy something from our digital store?
>no thanks, we prefer hard copies.
>WHY ARE YOU SO BACKWARD JAPAN IS GOING TO BE A THIRD WORLD COUNTRY

There are three things that make for a developed nation:
1.) the intellectual capital of the citizenry
2.) the economic and social cultures
3.) the level of technology available to industry

unless you're filthy rich on natural resources, everything else is negotiable and nothing else matters.

I find the Japanese love for over the top plastic food packaging both wasteful and stupid.

Patetic faggots grow up.

Says nothing about that you idiot
Get an argument you illiterate child

>>47729898
You're the fucking idiot
You're putting anime in this when it's not even relevant when people support Japan so you can continue to justify your irrational stance.
Anime isn't the only reason people would defend Japan. It's actually a good country.

Is this why so many people in anime still have flip-phones? Speaking of which, do they use SMS? Because they always say they're emailing each other.

>honor

honor isn't well represented with the bizarre javs, bukkakes, cp, young girls prodtituting themselves to buy the brand new gadget and the organized crime that the government dont give a fuck
>>
>>47729954
Yes, there are still a lot of flip phones, although many young people are switching to the modern smart phone style. No, they don't use SMS. There was a period in the late 90s/early 00s where Japan was really advanced in cell phone technology, which is why their flip phones are very feature rich. Then it just stagnated.

Porn is in every country and so is organized crime.

Using email is smarter since it avoids you getting jewed all the time.

>Korea
The country so advanced that they evolved into humans who can't smell anymore. So advanced because of that open sewage. Let's not forget about plastic surgery.

I also like physical stuff. I never buy digital shit unless its some dlc or only available digitally (Nintendo mostly). Music, books, games are all physical. Software like Photoshop is paid for and digital though (no discs and shit).
Just something about actually owning your shit and relying on servers to stay online for shit you paid for (looking at you, psn).

BTW, I'm Canadian, if that matters
>>
>>47726380
Haha, that's the weird thing. Everything physical, but women. Unless body pillows count (IMO they don't because they can't make you sandwiches, or whatever Japan's version of sandwiches is)
>>
>people who think korea is good
Only the most fake, unvirtued people could think this
Seriously I don't think people yet grasp how lame it is
>>
>>47726146
I'm the same.

Fuck digital. I'm not paying money for fucking just zeroes and ones.
>>
>>47726146
it's because they are instant people

iphone, mac osx, nintendo, low and outdated hardwares pc with old windows, everything is only for their fast pleasure

do they even have android device?
do they even care linux?
do they always bu expensive hardwares with the lastest windows?
do they even know how to hack, rooting, or even jailbreaking their idevice?

the answer is no, why?

because they only care 'how to make my life more instant'

>nintendo, low and outdated hardwares pc with old windows, everything is only for their fast pleasure
Your statement is so stupid I don't even.
Windows and macs. Old stuff = fast pleasure = Nitendo. What?
You might be retarded.
>>
>>47730308
And what's your opinion about it?
>>
>>47730308
>nintendo
>fast pleasure
Are you seriously this stupid?

If they go all digital, how will they hug their waifu at night?

I lost it at the watermelon.

But seriously, fruit is a special case there. Those 60 dollar melons? Raised with more care than a child by the farmers there; they're competition fruit. Luxury commodities.

You can still buy imported crap for reasonable prices in Japan.

Why not? If you're not paying for the information in the book then what are you paying for?
