    I am pretty annoyed how both IOS and OSX work with spelling.
    If you type a text and the spelling thinks it wrong, it will present a ballon near the text with the supposed spelling. If you go on, the spelling will change your text to the suggested text by default. This annoys me very much :mad:, because you have to click on the little cross next to the suggested text each and every time or have a text that makes no sense at all.

    Is there any way that you can change this spelling correction behavior in such a way that your text will stay unless you click on the suggested correction instead of the (annoying) other way around?

    For OS X:
    System Preferences,
    Language & Text pane,
    Text tab,
    Correct spelling automatically checkbox,

    Some apps have a per-app option:
    Edit menu,
    Spelling and Grammer sub-menu,
    Correct spelling automatically.

    I don't think either of those is exactly what you described, but at least it's not always auto-correcting.

    In the core of a black hole.
    Hit the arrow right instead if the spacebar will do the trick, and yes, I don't think it's well thought of.
