Inside the mind of an android

I have a wee game on my mobile phone.

No, it’s not Angry Birds or any of that crap. The first thing I did when I got the phone was to wipe all that stuff off to make a bit of space.

The game is quite simple – I start a sentence and after the first couple of words I just let predictive text take over.

Suppose I start with “Grandad is”?

All I do is type the first words and then complete the rest by selecting whatever words the phone suggests. …

“Grandad is a bit of a skit. The comments and complaints about this website and any other person is not a problem.”

Hmm. So it thinks I’m a skit? I’m not quite sure what to make of that, but I’ll let it pass.

It actually comes up with some pretty strange suggestions at times. I was adding a friend to my contacts, and it appeared to think I knew John Major which was a tad weird? Another time I was sending a message to the daughter and it thought I wanted to attach the UK.

I don’t know who programmes these yokes but they have an exceedingly strange mindset. They seem to have a strong bias towards the UK though.

I’m not sure quite why I’m writing this. Maybe it’s because I’m stuck with a mobile phone at the moment?

Things are somewhat more mundane on a laptop.
