Our local galleries are nice, and for the most part, they get the job done.

The images we post on Facebook are great for late-breaking, man on the street, catch as catch can J-tech coolness.

But when it comes to the high-res presentation of a well assembled flickr gallery, well, flickr's hard to beat. And we're not getting kickbacks to say so, but even for the average photographer or simple snapshotter - a terabyte of free storage? Uhhhh, yes please.

Social
Like 
FacebookTwitterYouTube, and Instagram, flickr also has become a social media service: photos, video, comments, likes, and the ability to share things of interest among your friends/followers/the public.

Lots and Lots of Photos
Our flickr presence reaches all the way back to 2008 and includes ~4000 high-res photos of Japanese tech, culture, landscape, and more. Jump into our Photostream here, or browse for a specific topic among our 160+ Albums.

We shoot with everything from a Nikon D90 with a big beefy lens, to the Sony Cyber-Shot RX-100, to a Panasonic Lumix GH3 (GH4 when we can get our hands on one) a few iPhone 5Ss, and an Android device here and there as well (admittedly, smartphones struggle to qualify as high-res, but on occasion that's what's needed to get the job done!).

REVIEW: Synology DiskStation DS1515+, Love at First Byte!
This peculiar black box looks a lot like its predecessors, but with the new Intel Atom C2538 2.4Ghz quad-core CPU, the game is really elevated: the new unit features built-in floating point and encryption AES-NI combined with almost 10% reduced power consumption while producing bursts over twice the computational power of its predecessor.

Okay let’s be honest, is there anything that could be more effective in motivating not only fans (mostly males), but also drivers (same thing) to get excited about racing? If anyone has any suggestions or alternatives, let us know in the comments. We dare you.

REVIEW: Casio G-SHOCK GPW1000 GPS Atomic Solar Hybrid
If you’re reachable by terrestrial radio waves or GPS signals from space, this watch will always be accurate within about 15 nanoseconds or less. And sure, you can pop out the electronic crown with a twist and pull and set the time manually, or just like, you know, pretty much never do that again. Come meet the beautiful hulk!

RECAP & TOP 3: Venture Day Tokyo 2014 (GALLERY)
With attendance more than twice that of 2013, interest is clearly on the rise and the collaboration seems well placed among the growing and steadily maturing calendar of Tokyo startup pitching events. Pitches were made by teams led by both Japanese and/or foreign residents, non-Japanese multinational teams of students or alumni from the two academic sponsors, and even a completely non-affiliated American developer who joined from Osaka.
