Japan’s favourite tramp juice

What Japan Thinks - Ne, 09/15/2019 - 18:25

Tramp juice, a slang term for high-strength canned drinks, including the granddaddy of them all, Carlsberg’s Special Brew, loved by homeless alcoholics, have not got the same bad rap in Japan, but are actually the fastest-growing sector of the market, so this ranking from goo Ranking looks at the tastiest strong (7% or more) canned chu-hi (spirits (or other alcohol) and soda ready-mixed).

Note that many of the names have words in uppercase, particularly STRONG and ZERO; the Japanese often had random English in product names, and it seems the rules for chu-hi state they must be in capitals! Men’s Plums sounds worse than it actually is; plum wine is a sweet drink marketed at women, but this chu-hi uses pickled plum imagery in the design for a more “masculine” appeal.

Here’s a little song about the foreigners’ favourite, Strong Zero:

Money-related apps most crash-prone

What Japan Thinks - St, 09/11/2019 - 18:37

jQuery(window).on('load', function() { var theConfig;theConfig = kenyn_piegraph_stats([45.4, 54.6], ["Yes", "No"], 'Do you experience app crashes once a week or more?', 'myChart1-app-crash.png');jQuery('.chart-canvas').show(); var ctx = document.getElementById('myChart1-app-crash.png').getContext("2d"); new Chart(ctx, theConfig); }); A new to me survey company, SmartBeat, recently conducted a survey into smartphone app crashes in the first half of 2019.

I don’t have any regular crashes, and hardly even irregular crashes on my Android phone, so I find it very surprising that nearly half the sample reports weekly crashes, and on top of that certain genres of apps crash daily! Do any of my readers have such troubles?

Here’s an iPhone that has crashed into the pavement…
