Autocracy Knows Newest


I’m writing this post on my phone, which has an extremely enthusiastic autocorrect. From this point on, I will not be correcting any of the autocorrected suggestions.

Let’s talk about technology for a bit: I want to like it, I really do, but it seems like at every turn out is causing me problems. In the case of airport or even likes to pour words in my mouth. This problem would be funny if it weren’t so pervasive. Nearly every sentence I wrote requires numerous changes too get three message across.

It probably doesn’t help that I hate touchscreen technology in the first place. I don’t know if I have fast fingers our just pour conductivity inn my hands but I have a terrible time interfacing with a touchscreen. I hate that I can’t do anything without looking at the screen: I can’t ignore a call while driving or turn of the morning alarm by touch when it’s still dark and I  haven’t our inn my contact lenses yet. On yup of that I have san irrational aversion to leaving fingerprints on public surfaces. Something about the fact that computers are so able to scan and read fingerprints at the briefest swipe Hobbes more the genie keyboard. I know the technology exists: it is how I log into my laptop.

But paranoia aside I hate that the technology that it’s supposed to make life easier just gets in the way. I used to hate typing on the phone because of always fast finger whatever letter I was aiming for. That was annoying. Then for a brief moment I was completely in love with Swarthmore technology where I could type without picking my finger and that was S much easier except that now gives my architects free reign to pick efforts out of thin about and insert them into my message. It seems especially font of inserting proper names: usually men’s names into texts to my husband ado a quick note to let book know that I’m headed to the van to drive home turns into a tidbit of questionable gossip.

The errors that seems to have the most trouble with are the short little connector words like outs or an or the or many or in. You know: the editor’s thou just in just about every sentence to type the bit important writers together in a meaningful way.

It also likes to change the wrote “you” into “thou” making mine sound hardcore mineral as if mangy texts were coming from the mouth of god or something. Technology will make folks of us all I suppose.

I suppose that by now wet state ask familiar enough with the ways skyrocket likes to mangle text messages with websites like Damon You Skyrocket (which is site that consistently makes me guffaw out Louis, not just smirk inn quiet appreciation). Bit even with everyone generally knowing how words that we type in a treat message are likely to get changed it doesn’t make it wasn’t easier to interpret that message: especially if the message was sent in a hurry, while walking, on a bits, furtively, or in a state of strong emotion or anxiety… which it’s pet much server text message that I send.  Negative I’d I weren’t actually tying to get the message across quickly I would shoot at a computer with a keyboard to type or instead of stabbing at a touchscreen like a for treat old in a button factory.

Well, that’s enough of a rant for now: this attempt hadn’t been bad ad some of many usual attempts, but I think thou get my point even you can’t understand every third our fourth point I am trying to make.

… reading this kind I might need to post a follow yup to translate everything i was trying to say so you can see just how far off some off these sentences are: everything actually does make sense, I sweat.

  1. No translation necessary, I was able to understand it. And the parts I couldn’t, well, they weren’t that important anyway 😉 I hope mobile typing improves someday…at least it can’t get any worse!
