  6. Coach Wei then brings speaker from Toshib showing component systems that are being developed to handle forency exchange system.

From Coach Wei, "The one fundamental flaw of the Internet is that it is not reliable."

Some very interesting work in component systems from Toshiba, showing how AJAX based systems there are developing. Very utilitarian (and all in Japanese of course, which has the effect of highlighting the visual interfaces)

Even in Japan, scheduling and calendaring seems to be the killer app for AJAX.
