My phone thinks I’m stupid.  I use the swype keyboard, and it usually works great.  The other day, though, I was trying to text John that I needed to download something, and autocorrect refused to recognize that what I was trying to type was the word “download”.  It kept correcting it to “get”.  “Get” totally worked in context, so I KNOW my phone understood what I was trying to type.  Why not just correct it for me?  Why dumb it down?  Why hurt my feelings, phone?  What’s that about?
