The biggest trouble with those silly machines is that they cannot read your mind. We were heading to friends place last night and, coming from a different direction, we got lost. Ok, fire up google maps on the phone. Fine, it told me where I was, but it didn't know the name of any of the streets we tried, only because we couldn't remember the name of street that they lived on! Why could't it just "know" what we are thinking. :D

Try to use phone also as phone :)
Windows assumes I'm stupid but Linux demands proof of it

Exactly what we did, we were only couple of clicks away in the end
