Sony's Apple strategy and Jack Ma in Tokyo

The inside story on the Asia tech trends that matter, from Nikkei Asia and the Financial Times

Hello everyone, this is Akito from Singapore.

About 20 years ago, when I was a young reporter, my work backpack was filled with Japanese electronics products. There was a Sony feature phone, which was on the cutting edge of design at the time, an Olympus voice recorder, a Toshiba music player and a Panasonic digital camera. For a while, I also had an NTT Docomo pager clipped to my belt so editors could get a hold of me whenever major news broke. The only non-Japanese brand equipment I used back then was an IBM laptop provided by Nikkei.
