GT!Blog » Why Japan didn’t create the iPod
summary: 1) japanse character set is huge and therefore difficult to implement in early computers; 2) as a result, few japanese consumers want to buy computers; 3) so the japanese tech industry leans toward specialized devices; 4) by year 2000 japanese predominantly access internet via cell phones(!); 5) only in the 2000s did the japanese begin to view the computer as the hub in a "digital lifestyle", as we do in the west.
