    People in Japan are much smarter than people in the US and other countries.
    Their tech comes cheaper.

    How does their tech come cheaper? Thats an iPhone. They have to import it from the US.

    What are you talking about "Big Things"? The TV Tuner is just thicker than the iPhone. Its still quite small.

    The reason we have less goodies is because companies think if Americans have to read directions to use it they won't buy it.

    WTF? Which AVERAGE AMERICAN is actually going to walk into the store and buy a TV Tuner to walk around with? Never. Give them Application, or give them death [to that tv tuner]

    I feel insulted.

    Japan already has an advanced wireless network (equivalent to the upcoming WiMax) that makes streaming... well fast. American cellphone carriers have choppy video stream and erratic performances (The TV tuner will be more likely in 2-5 years for us
