Close quarters for many families

Thanks to the Great Recession, many families are stuck in smaller homes, and that can mean that siblings often need to share a bedroom. But some parents think that's a good thing, as it helps kids develop social skills.

It also helps prepare college-bound kids for dorm roommates who play Dungeons and Dragons until 2 a.m. on weekends.

Steal this movie: A man in Quingdao, China, won a $10,000 iTunes gift card for downloading the 25 billionth app at the iTunes store.

Not to be outdone, the local black market shop in Quingdao presented a $10,000 gift card to the lucky person who bought the 10 millionth pirated DVD of "Avatar."

Bring your whole paycheck: Whole Foods is putting the finishing touches on its new Lynnwood store, scheduled to open on March 15.

The store, the posh chain's first in Snohomish County, will cater to families who wish to eat healthfully, busy folks looking for high-quality grab-and-go food, and anyone who needs to get rid of money that's been burning holes in their pockets.
