It was the time, when I was eating sashimi at a bar, fiddling with my iPad. A slice of Tuna accidentally dropped on the iPad. At that time, I hurriedly got rid of the sashimi, wiped it off, Later I found that suddenly. In the first place, If iPad were a dish, there are no problem

My iPad got fishy smell. You need to be careful.

Truly words to live by. Meanwhile, am I the only one totally de-appetized by that fishhead/bones/tail sashimi plate?

I borrowed some Google images and I created a plate wallpaper for my friend Marc when he got his ipad. I also came up with a spoon so you can use the iphone to shovel food into your mouth. Save them as bookmarks on your desktop!

Mr. Padraigin ordered an iPad early on so he could use it to test things for work, mostly. We think it's very pretty but even though we're total Apple fanfolks, we have had to admit that we aren't really sure what the iPad is for. At least for our lives, it seems to be poised to fill a niche neither of us actually has empty.

But now. Now. Now I know what it's for.

The dish switched to assorted sashimi!

Please, kids, savor your sashimi while there are still fish to be eaten. Don't ruin the experience by distractedly playing with shiny gadgets. Be one with the fish.

My wife is from Hawaii, which has many, many Japanese people, and which takes a fair percentage of its current culture from Japanese people. With that background, I am totally stunned at the level of Japanese consumer culture. Every time I stand and stare utterly agog at USian consumerism, invariably something from Japan flies by and makes me completely reconsider. I tend to think of it as something wholly created by the US in the wake of WWII, and I'm alternately fascinated/disgusted/watching for cartoon-consumer-worship-apocalypse.

Up until this moment, I had no interest in owning an iPad.

Now I am wondering how I have lived this long without one.

But, an unexpected trouble happened.
The feeling of pudding to iPad may be similar to finger’s,
The display started to shake, and suddenly,

The dish switched to assorted sashimi!

I love this!

If some high-end, molecular gastronomy chef hasn't ripped this idea off by the end of the week I'll be shocked.

Really neat.

Living by yourself, you'd miss warm feeling of body temperature.
Then, you can use this.
A hand.
Put rice ball on it,
What a warm looking it became. Taste of mother's.
With this, you won't be feeling lonely at all.


This. It is a poem.

This is fishy. Surely he's pudding us on.

I want to know how pudding may be similar to fingers. Is this like when I found out you could use beef jerky sticks as a stylus in winter, when it's too cold to take off your mittens?

However, one caution... soy sauce will become weird color by back light.

so you need to pay attention.


well, yeah, that and some other things...

That tuna looked really, really bad. I could smell it from here.

Fresh fish shouldn't smell like fish (unless it's mackerel).

Didn't look very hygenic, but I loved it.

So when you're done, you can just put it in the dishwasher, right?

you may mock now, but the call of cheap and still-mostly-fresh fish at the super market right before they close can be hard to resist.

See, if I did this in Tokyo I wouldn't even stand out. All the best sushi restaurants are on the iPad now.

The kaitenzushi places are still using iPod Touches, of course.

Ignorant Westerner here. What's the difference between sashimi and sushi? And yeah, I know, the goggle would tell me if I wasn't lazy too!
posted by cjorgensen at 6:31 AM on July 23, 2010


sashimi = raw fish
sushi = may or may not include raw fish. Definitely includes rice.

I am sure someone will be along to correct me soon.

Not just before. At my local Apita, sushi would get marked down some time between 7 and 7:30pm. Considering that a lot of people pick up grocery store sushi after work -- sometime around 6 -- I'd much rather take sushi that is one hour older for the 50% off, and I often did. (that particular package looks pretty much identical to the kind of thing I'd pick up) There's better to be had, obviously, but this was pretty good for the price. Decent calamari, too. The only thing was that once those stickers went on, it went fast, so selection could be slim if you were late.

This is genius.

You've never lived unless you've eaten the half-price sushi when it's been marked down. So tasty!
