Alright, so i just got a heck of a deal, bought myself a proper gaming keyboard with back-lit keys, allowing me to type in the dark. Fancy eh?

 

Well no. I miss my old keyboard. I've spilled beers on it in the past, had it under the faucet twice, pulled off each and every button with a screwdriver at least thrice to clean whatever grime beneath.

Taped the wrist pad, glued it. Propably even tried to burn it stuck with a lighter at some point, or maybe that was a friend's idea, can't remember.

 

But the buttons never failed me. Not for 13 years. That's quality i tell ya :) R.I.P keyboard, i will miss you (and if this new one ever breaks, you'll be there ;D)

Silly that i never thought about it before, computers and mice broke, but my trusty keyboard never did. Even when i most certainly hit the W button the millionth time already^^

 

 

Anyways. Tell me about your unique item. You know that one special item that loves you back for whatever reason.

 

 

I'll propably nail mine to the wall just because :P

My mouse, it looks nice, has butooons on the side reacts fast and it fits perfectly in my hand. Whenever I use another one like in school or my dads pc it just feels weird and frustrating.

My phone, Nokia 3720.

 

 

I got it in 2009 and it still works just fine, even after some quite rough use. I had it with me in army, I've dropped it into well (with water on bottom) twice, it's always with me at work (in conditions that broke philips gogear MP3 player in 3 days, mainly the stone dust I guess), dropped from 2nd floor once and I just throw it around in general because it appears to be invinsible and doesn't cost that much. Nokia promises 18 days battery life and still after over 5 years, it goes atleast 12 days without charge. Obviously I don't talk much though.

 

I don't know what to do when it eventually will brake.

Damnit, you just had to pull out the ace card didn't ya? :D

 

Yeah i can tell you you tend to collect a big stash of old phones over the years.

 

But when your smartphone breaks and you have to make an urgent call, guess which one still has battery life after sitting 10 years in the drawer?

 

Damn right, the old Nokia

 

 

Seriously, respect. That's some fine craftmanship made into those phones.

 

Nowadays they are made in China and i need not say more...
