Since March 2011 is ancient history at this point to most media outlets, lots of people aren't aware that there are still many citizens in Japan who remain homeless and in limbo. The barrage of aftershocks have steadily continued since the tsunami (a few of my friends in Japan are simultaneously becoming completely fed up with the quakes as well as strangely accustomed to them) and lots of signs are pointing to the fact that Japan's government is withholding information on just how dismal the situation at Fukushima truly is.
Amid all this chaos though, video game giant Nintendo is apparently sending out DSi units with DS Terebi attachments to quake victims. One quake victim shared his photo of the package contents online and although the predictable dissenting opinions on the gift surfaced right away, I'm sure he's thrilled at having some current gadgetry to bide his time with.
I know very few people who'd be able to stand daily life without the modern tech amenities we're so used to, even for a week. Months of such discomfort, loss and disconnection seems unbearable but it's nice to hear that Nintendo is continuing to participate in giving back to the victims of this tragedy (even it it's just clearing out dead stock).
