CrunchGear This Week

Well, we had quite a bit of fun this week telling the world about piracy and watching iTunes get cracked. We also have a contest running — all you have to do is tell us your ISP horror stories and you could win a Sansa Connect. Most importantly, however, Peter Suciu has been examining game violence this week, talking with game designers, ESRB representatives, and trying — but failing — to get Jack Thompson to talk to him. Read through his excellent interviews for a better look at a very topical issue.

Oh, and we also learned that Japanese smartphones are better than U.S. smartphones. Who knew?
