Though machines of exceedingly basic utility, they are nonetheless the unassuming vanguard of human/robot social relationships.
China edition…kinda! This week China wants to get its hands on Japanese test-taking A.I. and is asking very politely; meanwhile, the U.S. is going to get an LA-to-Vegas bullet train from China – which technically means the Americans will finally get to ride some Japanese trains. We are not shitting you!
This week China’s probably pretty pissed that India’s going to add Japanese bullet-train tech to cart, which is ironic since Chinese bullet train tech IS Japanese (ZING!), it’s extra confirmed that Apple’s going to finance Japan Display’s new factory, and lastly, you may insert a lame pun here about how consistently under-performing & money-losing Sharp is anything but. Read me!
This week we find out that Apple is likely to invest in Japan Display, the bastard child of Sony’s, Toshiba’s, and Hitachi’s floppy failed display businesses that, post-amputation, did a Wonder Triplets: ACTIVATE! move into profitability, and, entirely kinda unrelated, the de-displayed Hitachi has unveiled the world’s most powerful microscope and Sony’s commissioned it to look for their fiscal 2014 profit margin!
