trendwatching: Japan Lifestyle Update and More Body Monitoring

In this podcast, Cathi Bond offers us two stories from the recent Japan Times.  Reports are that more and more married women are using their gym as an opportunity to hook up and have affairs.  Plus, thesniffer's favourite nerdy Japanese young men, the Akibaki, have found a new place to hang out, according to the Japan Times, since being driven out of their old haunts by tourists. Meanwhile, Popgadget tipped Nora off to this new wristwatch by Hitachi. It's biometric! It monitors your body functions.  Are we all going to be monitoring our bodies 24/7 in the future, and what will that do to our sense of ourselves?
