I actually look forward to Junko's articles and enjoy her style of reporting. It gives me a valuable insight into the technical supply chain issues that are not reported in the nightly news.
Junko, keep up the good work!
That what I always found in this EE Times site from this author. What she want to seek in this site for Japan. For good or bad for Japan. When she given some article about Japan problem more uneducated opinions or comments is given and not many good suggestion especially from Japan haters. Its not matter if Japan response to it or not. Or it will be better not posting article about Japan at all. This is technology website not problem website. Thanks.
"Japan’s fat, complacent, mostly male bureaucracy."
Why is it when results are not found, people start complaining? And when results are met, they are congratulated.
It's not just this, this author complains about everything Japan: Panasonic, Sharp, Sony were just the recent victims of her global opinions that would be better suited to a local japanese news paper.
I agree with EREBUS, and for Junko I know how you felt to you fellow japanese aspecially in the disaster zone. But to redeveloped a proper infrastructure in the disaster zone take long time and with the scale of disaster because it involve many issue to consider but I can`t accept if Japan Gov can`t ready the basic and important thing. All in all not to expect fast or blink of the eye recovery. Thanks.
It is not an issue about stop complaining.
The issue is about a realistic understanding about the magnitude of the damage they need to undo. Complaining about something not being done instantly creates a needless redirection of resources that in the end takes longer to implement than the initial plan.
Until you have seen a city rebuilt, you have no idea about all of the issues involved.
I wish there was a magic wand or a global undo button, but rebuilding communities takes time.
Don't shoot the messenger just because you disagree with the message.
Just my opinion.
Why is it, every time someone raises an issues that needs some social involvement, some non-participant cries, "Stop complaining"?
Junko, you are doing a wonderful service by reporting on this. Perhaps it will embarrass the people who have been enlisted to resolve this problem enough to entice them to do the jobs they are being paid to do.
Anyone that believes the public should "stop complaining" and put up with whatever injustice is thrown at them is being completely unrealistic.
Nothing happens unless someone complains. Only a Mother Teresa does something completely out of the goodness of her heart. And the world is lacking in Mother Teresa's.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
