Question about TechWin

Wednesday, January 8, 2003 by starone | Discussion: WinCustomize Talk

Has anyone heard of TechWin, a Japanese magazine? I remember a thread some months back where someone had something featured with them and I can't remember whether the response was favorable or not.

Recently, there was an approach to some skinners by a Japanese Mag 'Windows 100%' which was 'OK' but there are/were included 'soft-porn' girlie images, alomg with mpegs that were a bit 'less' 'soft'.

Japanese 'culture' seems to have a strange mix of what they choose to combine as Mag content.

It's possible this mag may have similar 'liberal' ideals which may not be you 'cup of tea'...

Thank you Jafo for the response. I think I need to ask them questions.

Found their website and they seem to have a lot of anime. Wasn't too impressed so declined without asking the questions. Thanks again Jafo for the heads up.

I got an e-mail from them also. Was going to ask about them, but starone already did. I didn't see anything offensive at their website. Wonder if I would get a copy of the mag? Ummm...haven't decided. Anyone else have any input?

I've let TechWin and a few other Japanese and German mags use my skins in the past without incident. Didn't see the harm in it as long since they did ask permission and gave me magazines and CDs with the skins on them.
