Prof. Christoph Bart­neck of New Zealand’s Univer­sity of Can­ter­bury said he be­gan writ­ing (us­ing Ap­ple iOS) by en­ter­ing “atomic” and “nu­clear” into his tablet and “ran­domly” fol­low­ing what­ever “au­to­com­plete” sug­ges­tions emerged.

Sam­ple sen­tence: “The atoms of a bet­ter uni­verse will have the right for the same as you are the way we shall have to be a great place...” Con­clu­sion: “Power is not a great place for a good time.”
