If you cared enough to proofread your furiously thumbed text messages, you'd also be the sort of person who didn't actually text, and instead wrote beautiful "correspondence" in a flowing cursive script. Nerd! Chronicling the immortal mistakes that inevitably get through, Damn You, Auto Correct.
From the whimsical tech sisters behind "Why Did You Buy Me That" and "Twittiots", this just launched photoblog lets the world-wide-world in on iPhone auto correct fails that are "embarrassing, questionable, hilarious, and just plain WTF" -- as if something that was embarrassing could ever not be hilarious. Choice nuggets of deeply regretted sends include:
Phallic Fumes P1: Do you have any cocks vapor rub P1: Sorry not cocks, but vicks vapor P2: yes that was creepy P2: what you guys doin
Baskin Rubbin's P1: Ok! What are you & Jeff's fav flavors? P2: Jeff loves the crave and I love the penis butte
Now That's Italian! P1: R u free? P1: Wanna come over tonight for cards and fellatio? P1: OMG! That was supposed to say gelato! P2: Well, at first I was all for it, but then..
Because no screw-up should go unrewarded, Damn You also shines its light on other iPhone functions' foibles, like one wily person actually catching their Notes attempting to order them a "Genitals" roll on their next trip to Benihana -- which, if the chef's as careless with his sword as you are with your thumbs, isn't too far-fetched.
