iPhone: did you mean…?

iphone screen offering an on-the-fly correction of the word having to Jacobs

I dunno what’s up with this one. I’ve had some interesting on-the-fly spelling corrections from my iPhone recently, but in the midst of typing the word having, it offers to correct it to Jacobs… Ok, then!

I realize it was my fast-fingered typing of -d instead of -g that caused it, but I can’t recall anytime recently that I’ve even typed Jacobs. By an odd quirk of fate, many of my ex-boyfriends have J names, but Jacob is not among them.

Probably just another sign of the social-networking apocalypse as Twitter was experiencing an DoS attack while Facebook was crawling for some users this morning. Though as TechCrunch posited, I’m sure there was a worldwide surge in office productivity!*

* Yeah right, productivity in clicking Refresh, hitting F5 and texting/asking friends, “is Twitter down for you too?

    Gotta love the iphone’s spellchecker quirks. I especially love how it seems to be written to correct… Let’s just call them “colorful metaphors.”

    Twitter’s server – that site is too overwhelmed this morning.

    @gilahi: I’d like to think that you’re joking, yet I cannot be sure…

    Now if you’d said world-famous golfer, I’d know you were being serious.
