So I got a smart phone this past week (we'll ignore the fact that it makes me feel quite stupid). In the process of setting up widgets, apps, and mail servers, I found something marked "Voice Dialer." I've seen these before on phones, but never had any interest in using it--mostly because of all the jokes shown on TV and in movies about this feature and thinking it doesn't really work well.

So with nothing else to do, I punched the button. It prompted me to say a name or number and so I said, "Booty call" hoping it'd dial my house. Instead it dialed my in-laws.
