the APC or the SpeakerS but relatively high per-capita console sales Historically Microsoft’s Xbox consoles have fared very poorly in Japan: a mere 16 million compared with over 10 million PlayStation 3 units (and surpassed last February by Nintendo’s Wii U) The original Xbox launched in 2001 couldn’t even muster half a million At least the Japan launch price for the Kinect-free Xbox One isn’t out of the ballpark: 39980 yen or about $381 That and Sony’s had a tough time moving PS4s in Japan totaling (as of mid-July) about 620000 units since the console’s February launch Sony chalks that up to poor Japanese developer support pre-launch (no one expected the PS4 to be so successful says Sony which actually sounds plausible given Sony’s own sales underestimates) Assuming Sony’s claims are correct the corollary of course is: Does Microsoft have Japanese developers lined up for the Xbox One The company wants us to think so In April it laid out 48 “regional” companies signed up to develop for the system (“regional” meaning a mix of native Japanese as well as Western developers with Japanese branches) then expanded that list by several dozen in June But the 29 launch titles are decidedly Western-biased (Polygon has the full list here) and it’s hard to see any of those games — many of them already availably on the PS4 in the country — driving the system to stratospheric heights Microsoft’s greatest challenge selling Xbox Ones at this point is psychological There’s the narrative about the Xbox One’s horsepower given its inability early on to match the PS4’s output in multi-platform games pixel for pixel There are presumptions about the console’s lackluster unit sales (fueled by Microsoft’s sudden reluctance to provide specifics) There’s the confusing Kinect-as-initially-pivotal-but-now-peripheral boondoggle the system’s imposing physical footprint (it’s ginormous compared to the PS4 as big as an old-school desktop computer) and there’s the lingering miasma from a cavalcade of walked-back “features” ranging from hypothetically intrusive Kinect-related activities to truly awkward customer-unfriendly DRM policies At least two of those issues are behind the system at this point The Xbox One has been at price parity with Sony’s PS4 since June and the removal of Kinect ostensibly freed up horsepower to help developers wring a little more from the system But the system’s biggest hurdle at this point is perceived momentum And while the mainstream’s going to focus (not wrongly) on the system-sales-bolstering impact of exclusives like Halo: The Master Chief Collection Forza Horizon 2 and maybe (make that an emphatic maybe) Sunset Overdrive in all the established markets this fall it’ll be interesting to see the launch returns in the coming months Some of these new markets have enormous sales potential The question is whether Microsoft in 2014 has the marketing savvy and catalog appeal to drive those sales home Write to Matt Peckham at [email protected] after President Obama scheduled his Thursday primetime address to announce new executive actions on immigration his top White House communications advisor Dan Pfeiffer took to Twitter to boast “Great timing” he wrote noting a rather glaring non-coincidence As it turned out Obama had arranged to start speaking at the very moment Univision America’s largest Spanish-language television network planned to begin broadcasting the 2015 Latin Grammy Awards one of the network’s biggest shows of the year with a 2014 viewership of nearly 10 million Indeed Univision promptly announced that it would delay the start of the live event to take Obama’s remarks in translation ensuring the President a massive platform in the most crucial political demographic even as many of the English-language networks said they would skip the address The chances are high that the leading lights of Latin pop music will follow up his words tonight with on-stage celebrations of the President’s actions The White House not to mention its Republican rivals long ago learned the power of a network most American cannot even understand And at the center of that network is one of the most aggressive and influential newsmen in America Jorge Ramos who I profile in this week’s TIME magazine (The full article is available to subscribers Subscribe here for the print and digital versions; it costs just $40 a year) It is an exciting time for Ramos who in recent years has remade himself as a bilingual journalist agitator fighting for his audience to get immigration reforms in the United States and political reformation in his native Mexico “Itll be a triumph for the Latino community” Ramos wrote to me in an email yesterday after the President’s announcement was set “Itll demonstrate our newfound power This is not something that we got; this is something that we fought for” For Ramos the importance of the move was difficult to overstate “This will be the most important immigration measure in 50 yearssince the 1965 change in immigration law In terms of numbers itll have a wider impact than the 1986 amnesty” he continued “Although itll be temporary Republicans will have a very hard time rejecting it and not being seen as anti-immigrant or anti-Latino Also this will have a tremendous impact on the 2016 presidential campaign” If you don’t know who Ramos is you probably will soon He is the host to Noticiero Univision a nightly Spanish language newscast; Al Punto a Spanish-language Sunday political show and America with Jorge Ramos an English language news magazine on Fusion (His Univision news shows regularly beat their English language rivals among young viewers) He writes a bilingual newspaper column that published internationally and appears regularly as a pundit on English-language cable networks like CNN and MSNBC Polls among the US Latino community rank him as the most trusted and influential Hispanic in America beating all other political leaders and his Q-score among Latino audiences places him between soccer magus Lionel Messi and the pop starlet Shakira You can read more about him his activism and his troublemaking approach to journalism in the magazine But I have posted below some lightly edited excerpts from one of our interviews We spoke about the scandals in Mexico his past interviews with Mexico’s current President and some allegations that have been hurled against Grupo Televisa the Mexican media giant that is one of the owners of Univision We also spoke about the difficult balance he strikes between journalist and advocate TIME: So if you say that if [Obama grants legal status to] two million the White House is being too timid How do you know What are you basing that on JORGE RAMOS: Its very simple We have at least eleven million people who are in this country as undocumented without papers So if youre only going to help two million it is not enough It is clearly timid and wouldnt be bold enough Of course you will change the lives of two million people But it is not what is expected from the community And weve got to say that The problem has to do with the expectations When Obama came to power in 2008 right before the election he promised us that he was going to introduce immigration reform during his first year in office What is the outer edge of how far you would be willing to go as a journalist who wants to advocate for his audience The limit is I am a registered Independent I would never say to whom I vote I would never pressure anyone to vote for one party or another That would be way too much What is your role as one of the few journalists from Latin America who can actually get [interviews with Latin American political leaders] interviews on television and then ask whatever question you want Do you feel an accountability role for those countries Are you serving those populations too Well what I can tell you for instance is I feel with much more freedom to ask those questions Because I can come back to the States and enjoy complete freedom of speech If I had stayed in Mexico instead of coming to the United States I am absolutely convinced that I would have been a censored journalist And a very sad one Because I wouldnt have been able to ask the same questions that I ask from this side of the border Theres no question about it Theres no question that I have more freedom than many journalists in Mexico who are criticizing the Mexican president Do you think [Mexican President Enrique] Peña Nieto lied to you when he said Im not a millionaire I dont know But my role is to question him And my role is to make sure that hes not lying And if hes lying that hes accountable for that And this is new In one of your columns recently you suggested that it wouldnt be a bad idea if the Mexican legislature to try to take him from office But no one is doing that no one is doing that You were suggesting it no Im reporting that there are thousands of Mexican who want Peña Nieto to quit no To resign So heres what I think our role as journalistsCongress is not investigating Peña Nieto The Attorney General is not investigating Peña Nieto Most of the media in Mexico are not questioning Peña Nieto So somebody has to do it And I think it is our role to do that Precisely to do that And I have the opportunity to do it from the United States to question what Peña Nieto is doing what President Maduro is doing in Venezuela With much more freedom than Mexican and Venezuelan journalists I mean there is no freedom of speech in Venezuela So how can you question President Maduro from Venezuela Do you think Televisa played a nontransparent role in the election of Peña Nieto What I can say is that Peña Nieto spent much more much much more than all the other candidates And that millions of Mexicans question if he won fairly no And thats and that might be even an understatement And thats why Peña Nieto I think right now is having serious problems Not only with his complete failure when it comes to security issues And a questionable house owned by his wife But also in terms of being legitimate in front of millions of Mexicans who dont think that he won fairly My favorite line from [your book] Lo Que Vi is where you say that the joy of being a journalist is that you can preserve the restlessness and rebelliousness of youth Thats beautiful Im 56 and I still have the privilege of acting as a young reporter Which is beautiful Because when youre young young youre questioning everything As a journalist you are forced to question everyone all the time And therefore stay young no And thats the beautiful part And then what I found fascinating about our profession is that you can actually talk to those who are never used to being questioned And look its onlywe consider it only philosophically as journalists that it is truly our role to question those who are in power And I think our most important social responsibility is to make sure that they dont abuse their power And I think this comes from being brought up in a very close censored society like the Mexican society But then if I apply the same model here to the United States then I very early understood that my role was to represent a minority To represent Latinos and especially to represent immigrants For many different reasons First because Im an immigrant I mean I cant avoid that In one of the Fusion pieces you did on the border you were standing next to the fence and you said it reminds you of the Berlin Wall Why Because it is incredible that nowadays you have open borders in Europe And thats a taboo issue here in the United States I mean you can go a few months ago I went from Spain to France I paid 6 Euros at the border There was no police no agent no one stopping me And here in the United States we cant even discuss the possibility of something like that Im not arguing for open borders But its a taboo issue Do you feel that your responsibility at Univision or here is to challenge your audience as well The representing them and talking about DREAMERS and talking about what Boehners obstructing Do you try and do stories on the other side of immigration Like the unions being upset that wages on jobs are going down in meat packingplants because theres undocumented workers working in them Of course yeah but I think we have to concentrate on the really big issues And the really big issues is that you have a community that is underrepresented politically You have a community with eleven million people who are living in the shadows and in fear And we only have three senators We are 17% of the population And we only have three senators And two of them dont say what most of the population [says on immigration] Exactly So I think that explains why our role on Univision and on Fusion is different than what you would expect from NBC ABC or CBS CNN and Fox News Because a population who has no voice or very little or very few voices needs to express themselves I mean who is going to speak for all of the immigrants in this country I mean who is going to tell John Boehner that he is blocking immigration reform I mean who is going to say that It was in an ideal world one Latino senator and many members of congress of Hispanic origin would have gone to Boehner and told him in his face youre blocking immigration reform That didnt happen So it is our role to do that Democrats [have] saidand you know these people and theyve said it to youthat youve been unfair to the President because hes the greatest President ever for the Latino community if you look at his push for minimum wage which disproportionally helps [Latinos] Obamacare covering Latinos disproportionately economic progress there are some measures that Latinos are improving coming out of poverty quicker than others What do you say to that criticism Well that he just didnt keep his promise in the most important symbolic issue for Latinos When you have a community in which one out of two members is a foreigner and you dont deal with that issue as you promised of course youre going to be criticized But I think Ive been as a journalist more than being objective I think my role is to try to be fair I try to be fair with both democrats and Republicans I criticize fiercely President Obama for not keeping his word For delaying action on immigration And Ive criticized fiercely Republicans for blocking immigration reform They will lose the White House if they continue doing that So I think in that sense Ive been fair or if you want unfair to both Contact us at [email protected] When September goes went viral on Wednesday which symbolises that the door to Kathmandu would always remain open to him Australia as TIME

of the Kogi Police command in Lokoja He also remarked that the NYSC was indeed a national icon from which many Nigerians have benefited from who is said to be footing the bill of her Magodo Lagos duplexThe Trade Union CongressIt stunned Minneapolis-based Target Corp which was left reeling for months afterward Its CEO was fired; its shoppers were slow to return; and its data-breach costs have climbed to a quarter-billion dollarsIt also jolted the entire retail sector as Target turned out to be the first in a series of data thefts whose victims included Neiman Marcus Home Depot Michael’s Goodwill Dairy Queen Supervalu Staples and Jimmy John’sIt was a wake-up call to the credit card banking and payment networks to stop stalling on adopting safer but more expensive card technologiesFor them Litan said “I think the Target breach was monumental The main thing that has changed is both the banks and the retailers are really tightening up security”It also spawned more than 140 lawsuits against Target which were consolidated before a US District Court in St Paul and are now grinding their way through the legal system A trial is scheduled for 2016And shoppers At first they worried Countless cards were reissued But a year later the numbers suggest that consumers have moved on — and are still using their credit cardsTarget declined to comment for this storyConsumer skepticism“Shoppers are not worried about a data breach right now” said Lorman Lundsten a professor in marketing at the University of St Thomas in St Paul“What seems to have happened is people heard about the breach and they probably heard about the measures taken to neutralize the breach And basically nobody knows anybody who’s been hurt by it” But that doesn’t mean consumers are happy when their credit card numbers are stolen then sold online to criminals around the worldCompared with a year ago “There’s more consumer skepticism that their data is safe” said Jim McComb a Twin Cities retail consultant “And they’re less shocked when it happens Target had a tremendous fallout from its breach I haven’t heard a similar fallout from Home Depot”Meantime the next generation of chip-and-PIN credit cards is starting to appear including at Target The cards are harder for thieves to use because they carry an embedded computer chip and require a personal identification number or PINBut the infrastructure isn’t yet in place for chip-and-PIN cards to work this holiday season So shoppers are still using what the National Retail Federation has described as “fraud-prone magnetic stripe cards”McComb said he has long believed that “the industry had sort of taken the posture that it was cheaper to pay for the fraud than pay for the new equipment“I think that’s changed” he said “It has been incredibly expensive for Target; it’s been expensive for the banks to reissue the cards”McComb saw the new era recently when his own credit card was touched by the Home Depot breach“I got a card reissued that has a chip in it” he said “I’ve not been to a store yet that has the ability to read it but they’re stepping up to that”‘Distant memory’The Target hack began a year ago when cyberthieves — said to be from Russia but that’s still not clear — used stolen credentials to access Target’s computer network The thieves installed malware that captured card numbers used inside Target stores then transmitted the stolen data overseasFor 19 shopping days data on shoppers’ names card numbers expiration dates and some security codes including encrypted PIN codes was stolen from 40 million Target shoppersThe week before Christmas tech journalist and blogger Brian Krebs broke news of the breach The next day Dec 19 Target confirmed the bad news Its call centers were overwhelmed by worried shoppers which Target promised would not be liable for fraudulent chargesJust as alarming came the news that millions of stolen card numbers were available for sale at online “card shops” It made consumers feel so vulnerable it was common a year ago to hear shoppers swear off plastic foreverBut in the year since there’s not a lot of evidence that consumers have done so The credit card companies are doing just fine And a recent University of St Thomas holiday study found no signs of an exodus from plasticLundsten the St Thomas marketing professor isn’t surprised“It doesn’t happen because it’s more convenient to use the credit card” he saidOn the other hand Carol Spieckerman a retail consultant at NewMarketBuilders said the breaches are helping next-generation payment systems such as Apple Pay gain traction“I think retailers are very much in a defensive mode in terms of these data breaches and (hoping) that the next one doesn’t have their brand all over it as it did with Target” she saidNowadays Spieckerman calls the Target breach “a distant memory” to the nation’s consumers“Thanks to social media the news hits really hard and it goes really broad but then it goes away really fast and something takes it place” she said “The worst has already happened to Target”Lost swaggerFor Target it took nearly the full year but last week the discount giant finally seemed to emerge beyond the long shadow of the data breachFor the first time all year it reported its stores had sales gains Its stock price finally stayed above where it stood Dec 18 And it said any other breach costs were “immaterial” to its financial healthA new chief executive Brian Cornell heads the company And in the past year the company has redoubled its focus on a world of cyberthreats“They went out and really beefed up their leadership in security in IT and I think that was also going to benefit their online division” McComb saidBut McComb said some of Target’s old swagger vanished alongside the 40 million credit card numbers coupled with its struggles in Canada It’s been a long and unsettled year at its Minneapolis headquartersUntil last year McComb said “I think Target viewed themselves as being kind of invincible in a lot of ways”Lagos State Government Wednesday formally pulled-out eight retired Permanent Secretaries in a ceremony referred to as ‘Pens Down’ The retired
