    Aaah, this is better. A keyboard that looks like a typemachine!

    I activate the microphone symbol and just say “apostrophe” and it puts ‘. I say “exclamation mark” and it puts !. I dictate where possible. However, I sometimes perform manual edits because it has a habit of unintentionally coming out very kinky.

    I like phones. Even my home phone has recently taken to answering the calls of a person with whom I share a parent with “I’m sorry. There is no-one available to take your call. And you can’t leave a message. Please hang up. Thank you for calling”. It never used to say, “and you can’t leave a message”. A delightful added extra for me when I press the key to send the call to the answer phone. Although it does that eventually if I don’t press the key but I like to do it myself. Deep joy. I noticed that even when someone instructed the phone to permanently allow that scheming half-sibling’s calls through without interruption, the phone itself overrode this instruction within a day and started getting rid of that person again. Clever phone.

    I've sent my first whatsap message and I must say that, apart from the ultra-mini-keyboard drama, it's less time-consuming than sending a sms because I had to push the p-q-r-s button 4 times to type the "s". And if I didn't do it fast enough it would result in the "r". A word with two "p"s required a mini-pause otherwise it would result in "q" instead of "pp".
    Most of my sms-messages were "yes" and "OK", although I always added a smiley face : ) (I had to push 24 buttons to make that smiley face, but hey, I'm all about effort).

    Two baffling discoveries this week:

    1. I was wondering how people made selfies. Turns out that, by pushing one button, the phone becomes a mirror!
    Suddenly I got a brilliant idea for a modern "Snow White" ("And The Seven Tweeters")
    Evil Queen is posting selfies on instagram every day, but Snow White gets more likes and followers.
    Therefore, Snow White must die.

    2. It has the option to read soapchat in English or Dutch, and I don't mean those clunky, nonsensical translations, no, it's perfect!

    “Take a photo” or “Take a selfie” verbal commands can do some of those.
    I had a suspicion about Snow White.
