    Both computer and phone spelling autos are frustrating for an "English" speller rather than an American one.

    We have a new washer (that I detest. I could go beat my clothes on a rock and get the same results) and dryer that sing a song when they're done. Fortunately, that can easily be turned off. I didn't know the auto-correct could be turned off on the iPhone. Checking that out!! If you type the same thing about three times, it will "let" it stand, but that's a pain in the caboose!

    Well, this post explains the weird message we sometimes get here! I have machines that think they're smarter than we are!

    I disabled my auto correct because some of the texts had things that weren't even words!

    i turned auto correct off on my ipad after it kept changing people names. auto correct on mobile devices is as dumb as it is on my pc. which also has it turned off.

    I hate the automatic edit on my Android. I spend more time trying to make it say what I want than it would take to type every letter. If I can find a way to turn it off, I will.

    Oh, yea, I want to scream every time the microwave beeps me, not to mention the cloths dryer. If I could actually explode, I would when that thing beeps over and over. Geez, am I getting to be an old grouch, or what?

    No, I don't think you're a grouch. Whose idea was it to make all this cr*p beep at us anyway?? Probably the same idiot who invented underwire bras and commercials. I could do without THEM, too!

    I don't hate the auto correct near as much as I hate when I use voice typing for text messages and it gets almost every word wrong Hardly use it because it is such a pain
