“I correct autocorrect more than autocorrect corrects me”

“I correct autocorrect more than autocorrect corrects me” is a saying that has been printed on many images. This makes autocorrect mostly useless.

Wikipedia: Autocorrection
Autocorrection, also known as text replacement, replace-as-you-type or simply autocorrect, is an automatic data validation function commonly found in word processors and text editing interfaces for smartphones and tablet computers. Its principal purpose is as part of the spell checker to correct common spelling or typing errors, saving time for the user. It is also used to automatically format text or insert special characters by recognizing particular character usage, saving the user from having to use more tedious function.

I guess computers aren’t bad at spelling, they’re just bad at reading minds. (Why haven’t I disabled this counterproductive feature)
