    I find many people don't realize you can turn "Auto-Correction" off and leave "Check Spelling" turned on in iOS 5.

    Most of the time I like it. But, sometimes it acts stupid.

    I have friends like that, but I am not going to get rid of them. ;)

    Autocorrect is trainable. I've just been training it.

    So I can omit proper punctation, grammar, and spelling, and the iPhone handles it for me. I'm already reliant on it more than I'd like to be.

    I only recently realized that OS X 10.7 does the same thing - I type fast enough it rarely has a chance to make a suggestion, so I hadn't noticed.

    I turned off autocorrect in 10.7. Frickin' annoying with a real keyboard. I use it for my iPhone though. My spelling mistakes are from my fat fingers hitting the wrong keys.
