Every now and then one gets a glimpse of a whole world of which one is unaware. Yesterday provided such a glimpse. I lost my phone (for reasons too prosaic to go into here), and bough a new one, went to the shop, pointed at a phone and bought it. I was offered a grey one or a red one, and went for the red.
I wandered off to the car park and opened the box. The red was a little on the pinkinsh side but hey.
However on playing with the various menu functions I found one I wasn't expecting
In the Applications section, along with normal stuff like 'converter', 'clock', 'alarm' and so on was one I wasn't expecting.
In this section the options are as follows,
So far so unremarkable, but I was struck by the next one
What on earth is that? Thinks I.
Please tap in the 'starting date of last menses'
That the? My mobile phone gives me a alarm warning about when I get my next period!!
That is way too much information. Though I suppose if I tap in my delightful wife's dates here it could save me a fair bit of bother, such as when not to even try to disagree.
After the unfortunate incident of the passport cover this could get a little difficult to explain.
