IIECML members,
[*] Report on IIEC Fall Meet

Oct 18 (Sun), Hiroko Barall Room in the 2nd floor, JCCC. 1pm-4pm.
[*] Subjects discussed:

Some old-timers showed up, making the meeting like a reunion.
Useful pieces of information were exchanged.

* Presentation and demonstration on watching NHK on demand (for fee in Japan) free from outside Japan.
* Free WiFi situation in Japan.  Getting better as the outlets such as MacDoland's and Starbucks now offer free WiFi.  Department store was handing out free WiFi cards.  No social network connections.
* For a new laptop, which is better, Apple or Windows?
* Exchange-ability of SIM cards between cell phones.  Some may not work.
* Three attendees up-graded to Windows 10.  Initial troubles such as freezing and not shutting down, but they disappeared after a while.  An anti-virus software did not work.
* Windows installs security patches by itself.  iPad sends a notice which you can activate.
* Youtube does not work in Vista any more.  Vista cannot be up-graded to Windows 10.
* New condominiums have fiber optic cables coming to the walls.
* E-mail in Primus disappears.  Use other services such as Gmail.
* E-mail from has a tendency to go spam folders of the recipients.  Using Gmail for important e-mail.
* Cannot download pictures from a camera.  Download directly from the memory card.
* No DVD drive in newer laptops.  External DVD drive.
* To see Japanese DVD --> Convert a cheap DVD player to a region free machine. 
* Chat software LINE,  Can talk also like Skype.
* Too many passwords.  Software to keep the password secure.

* Buy Japanese books via Japanese Amazon.  Register in Japanese Amazon using an address in Japan.

Interesting talks on Japan.

* Coffee in cafeteria in department store or in regular cafe in Japan is very expensive.
