Dennis Lewis pleads on Facebook:
Dear God, is there any way to tell Android that I don’t need any help with spelling? I was texting my cousin … highlights of the Palace Kitchen’s Seattle Restaurant Week menu, and I just noticed that my little Kyocera 4G phone changed “arugula salad” to “Caligula salad” and the malted milk “chocolate panna cotta” to “chocolate panda cotta.”
Wonderful substitutes, but nevertheless very irritating.
(Dennis did get advice for turning off auto-correct on his particular cellphone.)
