The Wider Image: Japan's tsunami survivors call lost loves on the phone of the wind 
Kazuyoshi Sasaki, 67, who lost his wife, Miwako, in the March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami, reacts as he calls his late wife inside Kazo-no-Denwa (the phone of the wind), a phone booth set up for people to call their deceased loved ones, ahead of the 10th anniversary of the disaster, at Bell Gardia Kujira-yama in Otsuchi town, Iwate Prefecture, northern Japan, February 27, 2021. Inside, Sasaki dials his wife's cellphone number. He explains how he searched for her for days. "It all happened in an instant, I can't forget it even now," he says, weeping. "I sent you a message telling you where I was, but you didn't check it. When I came back to the house and looked up at the sky, there were thousands of stars, it was like looking at a jewel box," he added. "I cried and cried and knew then that so many people must have died." REUTERS/Issei Kato SEARCH "KATO PHONEBOOTH" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES. TPX IMAGE OF THE DAY.

Kazuyoshi Sasaki, 67, who lost his wife, Miwako, in the March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami disaster, reacts as he steps out of Kazo-no-Denwa (The phone of the Wind), a phone booth set up for people to call their deceased loved ones, after calling his late wife, ahead of the 10th anniversary of when the disaster happened, at Bell Gardia Kujira-yama in Otsuchi town, Iwate Prefecture, northern Japan, February 27, 2021. "It all happened in an instant, I can't forget it even now," Sasaki said when he explained how he searched for her for days after the devastating earthquake and tsunami a decade ago, visiting evacuation centres and makeshift morgues, returning at night to the rubble of their home. "I sent you a message telling you where I was, but you didn't check it," he added. "When I came back to the house and looked up at the sky, there were thousands of stars, it was like looking at a jewel box," he said.

A high school student uses his mobile phone to send SMS messages during a candle-light rally against "dangerous" U.S. beef imports in Seoul June 12, 2008. In this country, one of the most wired and technology savvy in the world, the month-long series of gatherings has also been a valuable testing ground for the latest communication devices, gadgets and websites. From high-resolution camera phones to instant broadcasting software and water cannon-resistant camcorders, the latest advances in communications were in evidence during the five weeks since the protests began.

Google Inc. has begun offering a simpler way for Google users to conduct instant message chats from inside a Web browser window, alongside their e-mail, the Mountain View, California-based company said late on February 6, 2006. Gmail Chat, as the new service is known, includes a Quick Contacts list on the left side of Google Gmail e-mail program, which automatically displays the people the user communicates with most frequently, not just via Chat but also via Gmail e-mail or its more advanced Google Talk text and voice-calling service. No additional software is required other than a Web browser and a Gmail account. FOR EDITORIAL USE ONLY REUTERS/Google/handout
