I recently updated to the latest version of the iPhone software, and for the most part, I’m happy with the changes.
Except one. Every time I type “lol,” Autocorrect changes it to “Laugh out loud.”
C’mon, Apple! Really?
I’ve been patiently refusing the suggestion for weeks now (and backspacing when I type too fast and it makes the correction before I can stop it). I keep thinking, “Hey, it’s a smart phone. Eventually it’ll learn that when I type “lol,” it’s because … news flash!! … I wanted to type “lol.”
Except … have I mentioned that I’ve been patiently refusing the suggestions for several weeks? I don’t think my “smart” phone is going to learn.
I hate it. Replacing lol with “laughing out loud” just makes me look dumb. And middle-aged (or older). And tragically unhip.
All of which I may well be, but I hardly want to advertise it!
So … if you get a text from me in which I say “Laugh out loud” (*cringe*), please know it is not actually me that is tragically unhip.
No, the person who is tragically unhip in this relationship is whoever is writing software code for Apple
