Re: a colleague skyped me..
you type cemeont instead of "cement". Instead of offering "cement" it will offer "common/recount/covet/duvet/moment/.." anything you could think of except "cement"
Thanks for the concrete example, but I suspect there's mortar it than you think. (sorry..)
If it makes you feel any better, autocorrect on ios isn't much better. Earlier today I typed "face" in a message to someone - as soon as I continued to the next word, it "helpfully" corrected it to "fave". So I deleted that and re-typed "face". Which it then corrected to "gave". On the third attempt, it allowed my intended word.
Is it just me, or is technology getting more and more shit as time passes?
