Obviously you're the one who's wrong again.
Again you don't read- I was responding to someone who asked why I cared what young Japanese men think. I'm curious to know what all of Japan thinks of Apple- I don't discriminate.
And if I was too passionate about the loss of the numberpad from the included iMac keyboard and you couldn't handle it- too bad. Your problem- not mine. Many aren't happy with that decision.

Don't understand what the reason is to get so upset about all this.

I was called narrowminded by paxman because I'm against the oppression of woman in Japanese society and thinking women should be treated equally as in our culture.

What if you turn on the Japanese keyboard in prefs?

I don't know. Some people think it may be a rights issue, that Apple didn't license it for phones sold outside of Japan. As far as I've heard, emoji is not available under the Japanese keyboard preferences unless it's either sold in Japan or has been enabled using one of these enabling apps.

As far as we know, they aren't taking it away from people that have it enabled, but the enabling apps are going away.

Wired had (maybe still has, don't know) "Japanese Schoolgirl Watch", because they are the first adopters of new technology. Whatever they are using now, you will be using three years from now.

What everyone is trying to tell you, is that you have no idea what you are talking about.

No. I called you narrow minded. And several other things.

It no longer works with the Spell Number App, the author says he will try and bring it back with an update.

There is a clear divide in the comments on the App, comments full of emoji then they suddenly stop and it's back to plain text.

The emoji option doesn't show under Japanese keyboards.

It's not going to stay that way either, Apple is asking all developers to remove all emoji enabling features in their apps.

You get to keep the emoji after deleting the app icon

Stand in Tokyo Station for a few minutes or sit in a coffee shop in any large city in Japan and you will see tons of iPods and quite a few iPhones.

Visit one of the Apple Stores in Japan and you will see tons of customers, primarily female, surrounding the iPod display tables.

The data above just confirms what I have sen with my own eyes (or the other way around?).

Also, pull out an iPod and it is recognized instantly as an iPod, not one of the myriad of other players. Brand recognition is amazing.

 

Your = the possessive of you, as in, "Your name is Tom, right?" or "What is your name?"

 

You're = a contraction of YOU + ARE as in, "You are right" --> "You're right."

I used to miss the keyboard form my MacPlus, but now I type primarily with MacSpeech Dictate so I don't miss it that much anymore.

Tom Clancy also supposedly prefers to type on a Plus, and that guy can type a lot.

Japanese women are "oppressed" because Apple has a women's iPod section? Am I getting that right? I'm a fair-minded person and generally quite progressive, but I have to say that that is just pure BS.

Japanese geeks (of course mostly men) do like Apple products just because they are pretty cool, but I'm not sure about women.
The big wall hiding iPhone is the SoftBank's plan of purchasing iPhone that require us to commit to iPhone for at least two years...
It's anyway not a good deal for people in general, especially for those who are already in comfort using their domestic ones (mostly those who are not such geeks)...
