When the recession reaches it's most coarse drastic form and the consumption would aim for zero point values, then all the Asian production would stop causing so much chaos there. That means for us that no cheap consumer electronics would be made. Still some middle-class proffesionals would need a
mobile computer to be carried with them on their job tasks, so anyone would be able to make a mobile computer like this. It's durable, lasting doesn't attract much attention and still it's a mobile computer! Some people in Russia has already started making some.
Russians have mixed feelings about the priests of Russian Orthodox Church (ROC). Some consider them to be almost holly (well, really maybe just some), others are not glad with some money schemes the ROC was involved in during last years. To comment a little, during 1990s the state couldn't support church with any money but they wanted to (maybe they believed it would help them somehow, or their sins would be pardoned someway) so they passed to church some very honey business opportunities like importing cigarettes and tobaco products to Russia without any taxes, so in just months Russian Orthodox Church has become the main dealer of cigarettes in Russia pushing out from
the market any other competitors who had to pay taxes and this lasted for years. Other people say that they can't trust modern day priests because during that same time - after the Soviet Union collapse - some people went to study for priests just with the thoughts that they would always have plenty of food and place to live if they join the church. Well, nevertheless, for sure there should be some real believers and followers of Christ's path, who are ready to fast for 40 days and then give out the last dime to the asking soul. Please submit some photos of such if you met one, I believe there should be!
Recently Russian service centers of Canon have started receiving complains from the people having the troubles with their Canon... vacuum cleaners. It seems that one large electronics supplier in Russia has bought somewhere what they truely believed to be Canon Vacuum Cleaners, and even advertised them. So many
bought intrigued by the brand name and overall feeling to get something cool from Canon. Now it seems it was a nice planned action to sell thousands of some third party, probably Chinese vacuum cleaners labeled as "Canon", having the manual and boxes looking like actual Canon stuff.
