Replacing the battery in a Casio Databank 150 watch

[Update February, 2013: It's amazing how things have changed in a few short years. Everyone now uses their phone for all these functions.]

Like many self-respecting technology professionals, I wear a Casio Databank watch. In my case, it's the Databank 150. And when the battery conks out, you'd think that it was time to visit the local jeweler's or K-Mart service desk to get the battery replaced. You can do this, but only do it to watch the look of horror that appears when you hand them the Databank. "Oh, no, we can't service those. You need to send it in to the factory!"

Cultural awareness

I had a chance to sit down and talk with Arun Pereira, author of The Culturally Customized Web Site: Customizing Web Sites for the Global Marketplace recently. He has studied the use of the web by different cultural groups, and come to the conclusion that translation is only a part of the picture; a website should be presented differently to an individualistic American vs. a collectivist Asian. I found that interesting, as I hadn't thought about it much before.
