Nintendo aiding the victims of the big Japan earthquake / Japan going digital with it’s TV broadcasting

Not only did Nintendo donate money to help the victims of the big disaster that struck Japan with the earthquake and tsunami in March this year. They are also sending out this package.

It includes a Nintendo DSi XL (known as LL in Japan), along with a TV tuner. Which leads me to another thing I wanted to tell you guys. Japan has now gone to only digital TV broadcasting, so I’m sure those tuners pick up the digital signal… Wish we had something like that in Sweden.

Sweden was a matter of fact the second country in the world to go all digital with it’s TV broadcasting. I think it was stupid. Not only did it render all small TV’s that was just using a simple antenna useless. You are required to have a box. And even if they have become much more advanced today, at the start you could only use one to watch one channel so if you had more TV’s and wanted to have another channel on on another TV or record something while you watch something else, you had to have multiple boxes! Also instead of getting some bad quality with statics, the picture can sometimes go all blocky and pixelated and shit. I’d prefer to have it with some static if there was a problem.

Back to the topic of helping the victims of the disaster in Japan. I will soon donate more money (just waiting for my late salary) and I also want to send a package with some goods to the people still living in shelters. I’m just not sure if it’s better to donate the money it will cost to send it instead.
