T9 defaults

One of the things I’ve regularly found amusing about predictive text input is that where there’s more than one match for the button pushes (which is usually the case), the default choice tends towards the whimsical rather than the useful. For example, 686 defaults to ‘nun’ rather than the perhaps more regularly-used ‘mum’.

I’ve just found another one: 2564 defaults to ‘clog.’ I don’t know about you, but I find myself wanting to discuss Dutch footwear far more regularly than, say, blogs.
