Happy new year bodies. Good to see you. This is my first post for 2011 and what better to do than crib. Yeah yeah, c.r.i.b, it is!
I think it will be my phone today. Let me take you through a couple of uncanny features it offers. For starters, it's a Sony phone.
And in the SMS section, there are two particular features:
- Next Word Suggestion - It means what it should mean. While typing an SMS, the phone suggests 'next' word(s) and it is on my discretion whether or not I want to take it (the suggestion of course).
- Full Word Suggestion - Here, while typing an SMS, if I start writing a word, the phone tries to complete it. I think it searches its memory and tries to guess what I may have written. I hear that my previously written SMSes contribute a lot to its memory base.
Now then, as cool or comfortable the features sound, they often end up irritating me.
To elaborate... If I write any sentence and end it with a period (full stop), the phone automatically and probably conveniently adds a com after the full stop.
Which basically means my messages look like this:
a. Hey, am leaving for office.com
b. Please reach on time.com
c. blah blah blah.com
Got my point? Many a times, I am in a hurry and click the send button only to realize the presence of that .com in the message that I just sent. Irritating!
Let me think of more.... oh, yeah!
The name of my manager is Gurpreet... and, the moment I type Gur, this bloody phone changes it to... Gurkha.
I must have changed this gurkha into gurpreet so many times but the phone does not remember. Dumb ass, I say.
Then, there are occasions when this thing throws up such weird weird sentences as suggestions. Gosh, they dont even mean a shit. Example - If I am typing am going... the phone changes it to am going hm.woh
Ya ya, that is it! What would that mean? Ghanta!
You know something... I can't possibly list all that this phone does. But am sure you get the point.
I know I have been harsh with the lovely features... and so I take this opportunity to tell you about the best thing about the two features - you can turn em off.
