Peter was so excited when he saw his product, a black t-shirt with white Japanese text that says “looking for Japanese girlfriend”, was featured in a recent issue of Newsweek magazine.
I was happy for him too; especially when he is the sponsor of my other site Hanzi Smatter.
I wish I could say the same about Newsweek magazine.
I consider Newsweek magazine as the “diet” or “lite” version of magazines that cover current affairs. Many of the stories featured in Newsweek are simply “fluff”. They do not provide readers with in depth insights, rather just superficial mentioning of a list of stories that have been chewed and spitted out by other news organizations.
Intrigued by the “How Geek Are You” quiz, I went though and answered all 20 questions honestly.
My score was 66 out of 102, yet I am classified as “Serious Geeky”.
Wait a minute, 66 out of 102, which is only 65%. That is equivalent to a middle D grade.
Shouldn’t “Serious Geeky” to be 90% or more?
Newsweek, what a waste…
