Damn You, Autocorrect!

The screwiness of the iPhone’s autocorrect function for text is a regular source of annoyance for Apple customers and mirth for people on the Internet, so it only makes sense that some single-subject site should pop up to turn iPhone users’ tears of frustration into a delighted public’s cheers of veneration. (Though I’m surprised that Cheezburger Network, whose Failbook blog of fake-seeming but funny Facebook conversations is enormously popular, hasn’t tried this first.)

Damn You, Autocorrect! is just that blog. Just a few of the weird iPhone autocorrects it has documented:

  • “Shortcuts” is corrected to “anorexic”
  • “Homie” is corrected to “homoerotic”
  • “Retweets” is corrected to “retarded”
