I considered writing in "The University of Tokyo" :-) but felt I was missing
a boat somewhere.
I couldn't find the link on the top page, or on the community page, but used
the "direct" link. Maybe you had meant some article indicating the context?
A questionaire comparing vendors of particular things seems fine to me, but
the question as stated seemed a bit broad compared to the list of specific
companies in the followup.

And I can pass on the iPod, I can't do anything without either chalk, or a
100+ key keyboard. My phone chuckles at me.
