Who in the world is "Ashai Glass"? Can anyone provide a website for a Japanese glass-maker under that name? I think not. The proper spelling of the Japanese glass maker is in fact Asahi Glass, whose English website is found here:http://www.agc.com/english/index.html
But you really do need to be a user of ATOK to more fully understand why Apple is not doing "the best job possible" on its own. Any native Japanese who has used the built-in Japanese input methods of OS X or Windows will be able to tell you the failings and limitations of those input methods (yes, I work with native Japanese, and they tell me, and I experience the failings in my own work too), and a good number of those failings are addressed in ATOK. But such makes...
Forgive me if I have misread your statement, but in terms of natural reading your use of the word "actually" implies that my prior post said otherwise. Not so. I was merely saying that because the English text used in the example given in this article speaks of "horizontal text layout" and "vertical text layout," I feel that the Japanese used side-by-side with that same English text should be a translation of that same English. More specifically, the Japanese would have...
ATOK has had offered the ability to sketch Kanji under OS X for many years (手書き文字入力):http://www.mactechlab.jp/products-report/3646.html And it's not just Kanji recognition either on the sketch pad:http://blog.shira-dragon.com/?eid=627767 Here's some additional information in English about ATOK's input method:http://www.atok.com/biz/embedded_atok_en.html
Actually, the text used in this article (clearly written by a native English speaker who doesn't fully know Japanese) currently says "Kore ga Nihon desu" (Romaji transliteration). The proper translation of that into English is, "This is Japan" because "日本" is "Japan." If you native English speakers doubt me, examine it yourself here:http://www.csse.monash.edu.au/~jwb/c...wwwjdic.cgi?1CFurthermore, when putting two languages together like this, it's only natural to assume...
"iPad 2's ultra-thing glass screen is generating yield issues" Perhaps they should call it "ultra-THING"! :-)
Experts, answer me this. Why does Apple still use highly breakable glass in its mobile products, when they could achieve the same look and feel with the much more durable and scratch resistant and cost effective Lexan DMX 2415? http://www.fist.si/db/fist/File/Sabi..._DMX_resin.pdf And with a silicon hard coat applied, the strength skyrockets, allowing companies like GM to use it in roof panels on the Corvette: http://kbam.geampod.com/KBAM/Reflect...il/18503_2.pdf
I honestly don't care "when" it comes out, so long as it has dual cameras and a built-in SD card slot!
It would seem Motorola still can't forget STARMAX.
Arrogant or not, I agree with their sentiments. There are too many lawsuits over software patents. Heck, there are too many lawsuits in general. For that reason, it doesn't matter if the case is good or bad, frivolous or not, promoting "freedom and liberty to sue" or not. I just want to see less suing and less media coverage of that suing as a result. The sad fact of the matter is, anyone can sue over a nutty software patent and win, just by bring the case to Texas...
