quo vadis?

I have a funny relationship with Finnish wellington boot manufacturers Nokia, largely they make me happy but occasionally they do something to confuse or bewilder me. (Much like any other of my relationships.) I love their phones, but they can be quirky.
I find that predictive text can be unpredictable. It has a quixotic vocabulary, it will give you a FUCK but it doesn’t know SHIT. I can be in NORFOLK but not in YORK, and EDINBURGH but not GLASGOW. A while ago I wanted to SMS someone about Finding Nemo.. (never mind why) Other than MEMO all it could suggest was MENO.

I was well impressed that it assumed I wanted to talk about a character from one of Plato’s Socratic dialogues, but at the same time surprised that it knew no latin nor was familiar with the works of Jules Verne.
