This is what happens when you let your keyboard autocomplete apologies.
I think we can all admit that technology has essentially taken over our lives, and our phones rule most of our day to day activities.
And it’s not just in the younger generation, it’s all of us, whether you admit it or not.
However, for all the amazing things technology has brought to us, one thing it can’t do for sure is express real human emotions. No matter how much it may try.
While autocorrect’s beloved cousin, autocomplete, does try expressing our feelings, it has failed terribly.
I’m sure most of us can count the number of times autocorrect and autocomplete have f*cked us in text conversations.
If it works out well—which it rarely does—you can get to your virtual or online destination even faster. But if it doesn’t, it makes you wonder about the sanity of the brain that goes on inside your phone.
In exercise, Twitter user @NihachuEatsCats put this to the test, tweeting, “type ‘I’m sorry for being’ and let your keyboard finish it for you.”
Well, the results—of course—were bizarre.
And many people have also joined in to tweet their own autocomplete results from their phones.
Are these phones cursed or something…? Or perhaps they’re just messing with our heads. We will let you be the judge.
Check some of the bizarre autocomplete results below—these phones seem to have a mind of their own.
In today’s hectic world, phones can be your friend, confidant, and silent ally.
Part of the magic of your smartphone is that it’ll want to help you ‘so it predicts what you might want to say before you’ve even asked for it.
This is often based on what you regularly type on the phone or what you previously wrote on your phone keyboard.
While these phones are trying to help, some people have received some REALLY questionable auto-completion suggestions.
Autocomplete, or word completion, is a feature in which your phone predicts the rest of the words as you type. In smartphones, this is known as the predictive text.
In graphical user interfaces, you can press the tab key to accept a suggestion or the down arrow key to accept one of several.
Autocomplete speeds up human-computer interactions when it correctly predicts the words you intended to enter.
Autocomplete works best in domains with an unlimited number of possible words, such as writing an email.
