iPhone Autocorrect strikes again! (at least it's funny)

I hate how if I'm typing someone's name (that's in my address book) with an 's' on the end, the auto correct doesn't automatically capitalize it for me.

For example. If I'm typing "I'll meet you at jesseys" I expect it to change "jesseys" to "Jessey's" automatically but it doesn't. So, I usually type "jessey", hit space, then delete and type 's on the end of his name.

Hehe... my post is the only post that is constructive enough to stay.

If forgot what I was typing but 3 times today it tried correcting it to "mRNA". Sorry I'm trying to send a text, not map the human genome.

Funny.

Predictive software is difficult to implement -- at least in this case.

Although in this case, I would think names would have been included.

It's driving me nuts how it keeps changing "id" or "Id" to "ID" instead of "I'd"

As if I really need to say ID that often.
