Toshiba gives up on Japanese tellies -

Electronics giant Toshiba has decided that making TVs for the Japanese is a complete waste of time.

Prices of tellies in Japan have fallen faster than a team of base-jumping performing elephants who have forgotten to pack their parachutes.

Most of the problems appear to be because the yen is stronger than the Incredible Hulk and by the time Tosh gets a telly to the Land of the Rising Sun it is worthless.

According to Reuters, it is the second manufacturer to walk away from Japan. The company which sounds like a sneeze, Hitachi also walked away citing a strong yen.

At this rate they should be doing better in Europe where the currency here is pretty weak. But pretty soon Japan will find it difficult to get its fix of electronic goods.
