Kindle cloud reader

Today, my chrome app pool has new app. Actually, I think it is installed automatically.... I'm not sure but I have no memory to install the app. The app is provided by amazon. Name of the app is "Kindle cloud reader". I installed kindle app to my mac. However, by this installation, i could delete the kindle app from my mac. Actually, I will not be able to read any books on my mac, when I go out. However, when that time, I'll have my nexus one and tablet. Both of them have the kindle app.

Now, I try to buy some book with free cost. (it's very nice that i can get some kind of knowledge by free. But, I'm weak for english, so it is hard to read them for me.) And try to read it. Usually, I didn't use kindle app on my mac. because, I needed to boot special app for reading app. But, now, I don't need to boot any special app only needing is to push app on chrome. I read some pages. I'm reading "what is Node". I cannot explain about this book, yet. Because I just started to read.

The review of kindle cloud reader is following. This is so easy to read. I think this is because of resolution of my computer. But the character is so clear and the book part is so wide. So, wide space for books are quite nice. However, the height is not enough. I'm using MacBookAir13inc. When I use this mac for reading book, total number of lines for a page is so small.  I could read 20-25 lines for each page. Yes, it is enough easy to read. However, it is little bit difficult to read some technical books what I wanted to check body of sentence and some figure. I need to change pages more than paper based book.

And, the books are synchronized between tablet, smartphone and cloud reader. So, I can read it with out stable network, too. This is another good point for me.

In total elements, I like this tool. And I will use it in my house, in my desk, in cafe, and some other place where I wants to use.

Japan is too late for book market. I think one of big reason is economical thing. However, If the authors and printers consider more for business model, e-book has good market power. They should change mind more.

Bicycle insurance in japan

Long time, I was considering about bicycle insurance.

Many japanese are not consider about insurance for bicycle in japan. Because japan is weak country for insurance.

Many people considered about when they are attacked by car. They didn't have an idea what they may be going to be individual at fault. However, road bikes are faster than my MTB. And, many of city bikes do not turn on a head light after sunset. The old person has also no idea what the bicycles can ride so fast as 50cc motar bike. Then they easy enter in front of bicycles. Such kind of accident is not few in japan. And, the worst case of such accident, the road bike rider needed to pay 40 millions yen to attacked person.

Bicycle ride's bad manner have begun to social issues. Some bicycle riders do not follow the traffic lights or traffic signs. In such background, sometime, I have risks what I will be attacked by such bicycle riders when I ride my MTB. However, as above reason, many riders have no insurance for r…

SSID in japanese?

Usually, we don't use japanese for setting to computer. Because, japaese needs at least two byte. Usually, many computer systems are designed for one byte. So, to use japanese in the system setting was not common way. If he is usual engineer then he will not set japanese for the setting to SSID. I was not do such a thing. Today, i read a tweet written by my friend. He wrote that he could see the japanese ssid from his house. I was really  suprized when i read it. So, I asked prof. Google about this ssid expression in japanese. So, it is  exist.Now, I had no wireless devces for trying it. But,it is so intersting thing for me.

TokyoWalking : Tram @Arakawa-Line

End of last year, I went to cycling to Ikebukuro. Ikebukuro is one of the main city on Yamanote-line (loop line) It is north area of Tokyo (loop-line).

Basically, most rail lines on mid-tokyo are as subway or elevated railway. So, it made my so surprising, when I saw it. 
This is tram in tokyo. I did not know that tokyo also has a tram.

Following photo is another tram station.

I saw several tram on the railway. Most of them are painted with different line (maybe...) This tram is named Toden-Arakawa-Line. This line is for Waseda University. I could not take the tram, becase I rode my bicycle. However, I will take the tram on some day.

Following river is River, Kanda. The river is used on some old japanese song.
