When Yasmine Djoudi and Thomas Pouplin moved from France to Japan for their studies, they noticed a persistent problem among their fellow students: they had a lot of free time and not too much money to spend.

That was hardly a revelation. But at the same time, they became familiar with Japan’s army of white-collar workers who crowded the trains at the end of the day, exhausted, with no time to even pick up their laundry. The duo figured they could help both groups with one startup.

Djoudi and Pouplin launched Ikkai in Fukuoka in 2016 to help match students with individuals who...

It’s a noisy world out there. As I write this, there’s a gentleman strimming the grass outside AAPicks Towers, and the racket is maddening. He’s darn lucky that I’m too lazy to do anything about it.

What I need, and am on the verge of purchasing, is today’s pick: Active Noise Cancelling Bluetooth Headphones. If you want to block out the annoyances of the world and listen to your tunes in peace, this is the tech for you. Whether you’re on your commute or out for a jog, up to 97% of sound will be cancelled out. Just make sure you look both ways before crossing the road....

Name recognition and branding is at the heart of any successful enterprise – your brand is how the world sees what you have to offer. Branding isn’t just simple marketing. It’s the basis for your company’s image and being, and all major decisions need to be made with the brand in mind.

We are happy to announce that branding professionals J. Walter Thompson (JWT) will be kicking off our first Startup Strategy Workshop for Tech in Asia Tokyo 2017. The workshop series is the first of its kind to be launched at Tech in Asia’s conference history, which will run its seventeenth edition this 27 & 28...

Jordan Fisher came to Japan nine years ago to work in finance. But now the New Yorker is doing something quite different – building a startup.

With Zehitomo, he’s working on Japan’s answer to Silicon Valley’s Thumbtack, giving people an easy way to connect with freelancers like personal trainers, wedding photographers, or language tutors.

While Thumbtack – valued at US$1.3 billion – has effectively helped its clones to figure out a few things, such as charging a fee for...

Who remembers the phone pictured above? It’s the LG G Flex 2, the second and last phone in LG’s experimental Flex range, which offered an interesting ergonomic curved display design and a self-healing back. Although the average consumer is now probably quite familiar with Samsung’s edge AMOLED display, LG was ahead of the curve with the Flex series, which made its debut in 2013 around the same time as Samsung’s now little-remembered Galaxy Round.

The technology enabling the Flex’s unique look is called Plastic OLED (POLED), and as the...

Everyone can surely agree that the issue that caused some OnePlus 5 devices to reboot when dialing 911 was a serious one, albeit one that was addressed by a recent software update. Likely because it was a serious issue, folks understandably wanted to know where that issue came from and what OnePlus did to fix it. That’s something the company has just done on its forums.

According to OnePlus, the issue presented itself whenever someone used Voice over LTE (VoLTE) to call emergency numbers that triggered the OTDOA protocol. Observed Time...
