I predicted that Hakuho will win the March tournament.
Well, I was wrong, and Yokozuna Asashoryu won.
AT&T and Verizon won the 700 MHz auction. It was quite obvious it is not going to remain a secret for long.
Google is obviously not on the list, and for a long time there were discussions that Google was not really interested in the license, but played the game to make sure the FCC apply “open-access” rules to this spectrum.

As reported in Unstrung, the FCC ended the 700 MHz Auction at 19.592$ Billions. The Dollar is not what it used be, but this is still a hefty sum.
Now, the big questions are:
1) Who won?
2) Will it be used for WiMAX?
While visiting Japan, we purchased a child Toilet seat. Turned out it is a Israeli product by K&D Design (Keter).
Photos below of the product and of course, placed in the Toilet.

Before arriving to immigration in Narita, a sign welcomes everyone to Japan in English. However, the Japanese sign says “Welcome back”. Interesting, isn’t it?
Unfortunately, or luckily, I was too busy during my visit to Japan, so I couldn’t follow the March Sumo Tournament.
But, the Sumo website is wonderful in providing real time (and streaming) information, so I am planning to follow it.
Asashoryu is 7-0
Hakuho is 6-1
while Kotooshu is 2-5.
So, the big question is who will win? Mongolian Yokozuna Asashoryu or Mongolian Yokozuna Hakuho.
I am placing my bet on Hakuho.
Just before my trip to Japan, I have finished my Glenfiddich Whisky Bottle. I was thinking of buying a Japanese Whisky, but haven’t. (Too heavy, liquids in the suitcase, and other lame excuses).
Bottom line, no Whisky for me. Have to buy one soon.
We just love Jamon Iberico.
So, before I flew back, went to El Corte Ingles. They have a gourmet shop, where I bought this wonderful Jamon Iberico. Too bad it didn’t last for more than two days.
