of course, Japan is the land of the future...

the Japanese tourism bureau should really consider the following slogans:
"Japan, step into the future"
"Japan, where we already have tomorrow's news"
"Japan, see a future where mp3 players grow on trees"
"In Japan, we have the iPhones v8.5 - compatible with everything!"

"Peace and zen in hearts,
Sixaxis in nimble hands,
check your six o'clock!"

oh, the idea is awesome,

the technology isn't new either - it's just the whole "old habits die hard" and "what's worth investing/going-into-debt for" arguements that hold great, simple ideas like this back.
creative-destruction/disruptive markets and technologies can be a fierce and beautiful thing... (it's the whole, "out with the old, in with the new/refined" idea)

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
