    So with the latest iPad update the word MacPad has been added to the dictionary. Much like when iOS was termed it started auto correcting like iPad, iPhone, iAd, MacBook, etc.

    Does that mean the MacPad is near???

    So tell me how to get hell instead of he'll. I put hell on my contacts like someone said on here and it still changes it to he'll. Irritating!

    But I say it all the time and this ....autocorrect keeps on doing it to me. I'm sure it's just to wind me up. It's human you know, but I refuse to give it a name though.

    Very strange. I just decided the other day to look up if there were any MacPad rumors floating around and it autocorrected me...surprised nobody else is getting this. I have many words that I type ALL THE TIME and it won't remember...so its not that I typed it once before and it retained it somehow. I def don't have that as a word in the address book...that would be pointless.

    Someone else please tell me you can do that too and I'm not just crazy.

    Could it be that as you mention your hubby in your posts occasionally every time you write he'll it defaults back to the original dictionary word........and I used to think that I was the worst on these forums for going off topic.......I bow to you greater skills in this department.

    Oooh, cheeky boy, and I agree that there are loads of words that autocorrect me all the time and I thought that if you do the word 2 or 3 times, it will remember it. So no- one is going crazy, it really does happen, and yes,Gab, if you want to, I will be the top off topic person if you want, I suppose I have to be master of something even if it is against the rules.
