I’m sure that by now you’ve heard of the horrible 8.9 magnitude earthquake that struck Japan on Friday. More than a thousand people have lost their lives, countless have been injured and losses worth billions of dollars (or zillions of yen) have shook the country and its people. Those who are able to, are urged to donate to Japanese Red Cross Society … or alternatively, by purchasing an iOS video game!
