      Do you have any experiences when technology annoyed the "whackamo" out of you?

      For example, with my smartphone, the spell checker always puts in words that I don't want when I type a letter and then another.
      If you own a smartphone, you'll know what I mean...

      I know what you mean about the predictive text or spell checker on a smartphone, numerous times I have sent a message or sent a text message or updated my FB status and a word has come out wrong lol

      That image made me laugh :D so true and very embarrasing when it happens :lol:

      Haha, I agree with you. That's why I don't use Spell checker on my browser or even on my phone :D

      My iPod keeps dropping my wifi connection even when I'm literally five feet from my router. Hell, half the things that ipod does annoy me haha. The earphone jack doesn't even work anymore.
