Dai-Cast Zeta 002 - in Japanese, Keitai Means Cellphone
This week, on Dai-Cast it’s “Dai Cast Zeta”, where we pick one particular topic on Japan or Japanese pop culture, and stick with it, exhaustivly expressing our opinions for your education, elucidation, emancipation, and mental emolument, to summarily beat it into the ground, so that we never need to revisit the topic again.
On this particular round, we’re tackling celular phones in Japan, or Ketias. And to take the pulse of the gadget blogosphere, we’ve invited Joel Johnson of BoingBoing Gadgets to give us a geek’s view of Japanese phones from the outside world.
So sit back, and prepare to be educated at!
