Art Lebedev's keyboards

I guess everyone has some difficulties when you're working with Photoshop or similar programs because if you need to do it fast you should know all hot-keys. Art Lebedev studio introduced new keyboards that will help us. I strongly believe that these keyboards are keyboards of future.

I'd like to have these one but unfortunately only optimus are available at the moment. However price for it could be better. Now this range is following: 371.40 € to 1256.86 €

5 things of my private life

I decided to keep up activity of writing 5 private things about me.
In fact, I have been infected with this by my friend Bug. :)
So my 5 things:

  1. I was born in the village Orinin, Kamenets-Podolsky region. Actually, it was unusual birth because first part of my body that saw this world ....I feel shy :).... it wasn't my head, it was my ass :). I sorry mama that I forced you in such way. I'll be good son.
  2. I have being loved some pretty girl two years (in school) but I was afraid to say it. I was miserable.
  3. I hate to dig potatoes out. It was most frightful punishment for me in my childhood.
  4. Best time i had it was time in dormitory. A lot of girls, beer and time.... Unfortunately time is expensive thing. The elder you are the less time you have. ;(
  5. I understand life can be simple and interesting if you don't waste time.
I want to keep this tendency and commence it with Dima Pastovensky http://dpastov.blogspot.com/.

SGH-D880 (Duos) at last we have cell with two sim cards

Everybody in Ukraine have already known that Samsung Duos (SGH-D880) is being selling.


I'm eager to have such phone but ... always I have but :)

  • How much does it cost? Some sites give approximately ~450$. However I had a quick look to price.ua - 999$. I'm really shocked :)
  • How long battery will be alive? - 1200 мАч. If you have two sim cards then call duration will be doubled. I guess It'll be need to charge it every day. I'm too lazy.
  • And the last question does it make sense to buy it? Definitely NO
