Stuff we all used to experience with CRT televisions

What Japan Thinks - Ne, 11/19/2017 - 17:47

goo Ranking seems to be on a nostalgia trip recently, with tonight’s looking at things from the CRT television age that people can empathise with.

The survey consists of people under the age of 39, so I’m not convinved they would have experienced black and white. I’m also not sure what the distinctive sound when turning on was…

I’m also trying to remember what channel we used for our home computer – 37 comes to mind, but which push button we set it to escapes me. Channel 2 would of course have been set to BBC2, so it wasn’t that.

Here’s an old Panasonic television from 1983:

The sweets maker Kanro recently released a survey that looked at Instagram and lifestyle, with young women being the focus.

One reason for this survey is to promote a photo competition. Follow either Kanro’s Twitter or Instagram account, take a photo of yourself with a package of Kanro’s Pure Gummi and upload it, tagging it with #ピュレフォト and #キャンペーン実施中 by the end of the year. After that, 1,000 people will be selected (at random, I presume) and will receive 6 bags of limited edition colourful Pure Gummy.

My Instagram account is mostly stuff I find interesting and the occasional food plate, and I’ll like just about anything with kittens in it.

Here’s a selection of fruity gummy:
