The propsoed New Tokyo Tower would be the tallest in Asia. That's an unusual supurlative for Tokyo, which has always had visually-interesting, but still pretty small, skyscrapers.

Probably not for a couple of years. They'll have to relocate the rail yard first. Foruntately, Japan is one of those countries where the populace, for the most part, goes along with what the government wants; and the government wants this.

Tokyo needs a tower this tall because its so expansive. It's the world's biggest metro, and the Japanese like everything to be neat and tidy, so they want one central tower that can beam TV and radio programs to the entire city.

It kind of is smart. I like the way they think, they are so developed because of their reasoning and thinking.

Wao! Is this official because if they do this building it will be the tallest in Asia not including the Burj Dubai in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

Either way, ~600ft from half a mile is huge. It boggles my mind at what man can build. Who knows what the future holds...

That's true, no one never knows, but if they do this building, it certainly will be the second tallest building in the world. We just have to see, someday they'll make it official.

Honestly, I want this��blackberrys are the only phones that have cheap Internet packages in my country..I agree they lack apps, but in my time using it, I've found an all for everything I need��the messaging on these devices is perfect..but for almost as long as I've had a blackberry (almost 2 years) I've had an iPod touch to do everything except communication and messaging (1.5 years)��with the cheaper social plan, a bb and an ipt 4 are the perfect combination in my opinion, in fact right now I'm listening to music on my iPod and chatting on msn with my bb curve..I keep wishing I could get the best of both worlds in one device tho..maybe one day convert m4a to mp3 mac I am a big fan of RoboForm, and had it for years. RobForm (RF) works with ease on the desktop browser (IE, Firefox, Chrome, Safari) and will sync with iOS App. RF has all the features as the other, user-friendly. I used mSecure & last pass .... but I'll keep coming back for RF IT functionality and usability. RF is not the most beautiful to see compared to some others, but it is definitely above average. For a little extra, you can get on a RF-stick to use on public computers or another computer and it does not leave any information (websites investigated, keystrokes, log-in names and passwords) behind on this computer. As you can see, I am a big fan of RF ... ... and I do not even have to work for them. Try it out and tell me if you like it!
