Auto correct

About six months ago I upgraded the software on my mobile and embraced the world of (supposedly intelligent) auto correct. It did help with my spelling mistakes but at a cost. Whenever I wrote a word it thought was wrong I would have to fight the software to get my own way.

Recently I found myself giving in and letting it have its way, at the expense of my original meaning.

That was the point where I deleted the software, turned off autocorrect and felt a lot happier.

Spelling is important, but not that important. Meaning is key.
