Do it !

Recently, I've come to think that if I want to criticize someone, it's better to do it by myself. If I criticize someone, I felt bad and furthermore it didn't go better because they couldn't do it.
To spend time with criticizing somethings is waste of time..

To be on the side of people who always criticize someone or something or not is up to us.

Shocked ! -amazon kindle

today checking amazon site, I found that kindle is priced down for winter bergain.
I bought ¥6980 but now can buy ¥4980, very shocked !
And it is shown when I log in with amazon ID. I am now a member of amazon prime, so it might be limited member's information.
Anyway, I'm very very shocked and felt anger for amazon..

New kindle has come !

New kindle was released and it is not expensive (¥6980) compaired with kindle whitepaper (about  ¥10 thousant), so that I decided to buy one.
I ordered Thursday and arrived next day on Friday due to amazon prime service (trying 30days free tiarl).
Using it, it ers
pad with old one, I can read japanese books from amazon.co.jp because my od one was USA version so it handle amazon.com, can't display japanese character. ( I sometimes use send-to-kindle option to display Japanese character from PDF document)
- checking meaning of words easily. There are dictionary in old one but it is english-english dic. and moving cursor to a destination word takes a little time. But with new one, I touch a word and finish ! very simple. (of course there are japanese -English dic.) Furthermore, checked words are stored in flash card automatically.
- Scrolling pages is very easily. There is a function that I can display page preview with small size, moving next page or chapter through  preview. It is very good function.
- light and small
- Not so expensive so ordinally office workers can buy it in one's pocket money.
I liked old kindle. It has audio function so it read out books. And furthermore, it isnot broken for 4years usage.

------------
After getting new kindle,
I visited recycling shops for selling old kindl
e but they couldn't buy it because they handle kindle. This kindle is of USA type which couldn't use amazon-jp ID so i thought it was a liitle hard to sell it. But yesterday when i visited another recycling shop, they bouht it. The price is so low but I'm satisfied with this result.

Amazon's misorder

I used ¥980 maruman watch for about 2years, but recently this watch was sometimes in a wrong manner. After using stopwatch function plus ilumination function and press a stop botton, time was all reset! (I often do joging after coming home and used stopwatch function of my watch)
And 3days before, at last time was incorrect.
It might be out of battely, but I decided to buy new watch at amazon.
I like CASIO G-SHOCK orignal model(5600) and found ¥5900 imported one, so I orderd it.
And yesterday, it was delivered but it was another type(model 9052).
I've used amazon for a long time but such thing was first.
Returning process is easy. At first, I clicked url in reciept mail and I writ down my telephone number and push botton, then there were return cal from amazon telephone center. After telling infirmation, they did refunding procejure. Then I packed the watch into box then brought it to convinience store, sended it to amazon C.O.D.*
When amazon recieve the percel, I`ll recieve amazon cash point then reorder an watch.
*Sending label are available at "checking ording history" of customer menu after they recieve refunding procedure.
P.S.
After refunding procedure, I reordered one and it was arrived this Tuesday and this one is right one!

For what studying ?

Recently, I read a book written by an attorney woman graduated first on the list of University of Tokyo.
As reading it, I felt strange because as far as her books, she study hard to get high rank score. I can't understand her basic idea.

For what does she study ?
People went to school because they want to know things they didn't know. From such view point, Score should not be the object.
Studying for a name or rank means nothing. It's waste of time.
If I have time, I want to use time for true study.Maybe for science favoring people like me can understand such way of thinking.
Knowing fantasic idea human being got to know is fascnating things, and for me, this is the most important thing for life.
But as far as I know, many of japanese people is like her, and such sense of value might be hard to change, I think.

To read books for lower cost

I read books mainly from public library by internet reservation system,
and sometimes buy books (mainly used books because there are many used bookstore aroud japan) or buy e-books  which are not sold in japan or are cheaper compared with translation version.

Internet services including internet  accessibility is very cheap & sufficient (for example my mobile phone with internet cost about 10 $ per month).
So if we memo titles of books which we had lent & read .we don't have to own books by myself. 

Of course, I want to buy books if these are mine, I can write down memo on books or fold down corner of pages. But for many ordinally people, there are limit of allowance for family so using public library services plus IT is very good way for book lover.

Memento database

Recently, I use tablet(Nexus 7 with wifi) & smart phone (LG l-01f with MVNO) .
Before, I used iPod touch and used flashcaed app for memo of english words and after changing to android(nexus 7), I can't find good app and furthermore, I changed my old mobile phone to smartphone(l-01f) with MNNO to reduce telecommunication fee, so I want to find good app which I can handle 2 devices with synchronizing database.

And I find this software. It is very easy to use and it can sync database via Google docs, so if I can append words in one device and push sync bottom, then I can update another device with simply push sync bottom.

I like it, but recently when I deleted Google docs's spreadsheet, I can't upload data to Google docs. But today, this trouble has been solved. After uploading data, I could not see spreadsheet from Google doc app, but when I access from desktop PC, I can find uploaded spreadsheet and after that, I can see uploaded spreadsheet from Google doc app.
Maybe this might be bug, but anyway I can use it normally.

We went murin-an, which I saw at keihan railway's brochure.

Murin-an is very good place to relax, because it is not so famous so not crowded and well-reserved. I liked this place.
