Asahi Vending Machines Now Dispense Free Wi-Fi and Beer!

It always annoys me when I’m stuck outside with my laptop trying to find a Wi-Fi network. Luckily where I am here in Taipei, there’s city-wide free Wi-Fi, so that’s never been a problem.

TAXAN MeoTune Turns Your Smartphone into a TV

I understand that some people want to watch TV while they are taking public transportation, but to me it makes no sense – especially with all the content freely accessible on the Internet. However, I guess that this is something that the Japanese really want and need. Most of the phones in Japan incorporate TV tuners.
