Typhoon Kong-rey has become a low pressure system. But weather officials in Japan are still urging people to watch out for strong winds and high waves.
The storm battered southwestern Japan on Saturday. Several people were injured and one died. A man in his 60s lost his life after being crushed by a falling log in Fukuoka Prefecture.
Following the heavy rains in western Japan, questions are beginning to emerge. Some wonder whether people were given enough warning to leave areas threatened by rising waters. Others ask whether the high loss of life could have been avoided.
Muddy waters fill the streets of Ozu City in Ehime Prefecture. Four people died and 4,600 homes were damaged. The waters are believed to have reached up to 4.6 meters, sweeping away everything in their path.
The Federal Trade Commission recently issued warnings to multiple companies including Sony and Nintendo reminding them that stickers on their products that claim that the warranty will be void if they are removed are illegal. The FTC had sent them warning letters earlier this month to bring to their notice that their warranties might be in conflict with U.S. law. Sony has already updated its warranty policies following the warning letter and Nintendo has now done the same.
The companies that received the warning letters from FTC include Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo, ASUS, and HTC. The letters were sent to warn them that their warranties which claimed that customers couldn’t use third-party parts, accessories, or that if they removed the warranty stickers might be against the law of the land.
Recently you might have heard that the FTC has actually issued a warning to several companies, reminding them that stickers that claim that warranty is void if they are removed is illegal. One of those companies that was warned by the FTC is Sony and the good news is that the company has been quick to comply with the warnings.
According to reports, it appears that Sony has recently updated its warranty policies to comply with the law. The company has made changes to two of its policies, one of which has to do with the use of unlicensed third-party peripherals, and the other has to do with third-party repairs and the opening of the console in general.
