I don’t know why the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra used an autocorrect joke as a vehicle to promote itself, but you know what? At least it’s not a horrifying ad for breast augmentation.
Despite the well-documented foibles of autocorrect, it actually is pretty good at turning my gibberish touch typing into comprehensible if profanity-free prose. For that, we have a man by the name of Bill Vaginal to thank. Erh, I mean Vignola.
Autocorrect has been behind more than its share of misunderstandings, but today it stirred up a whole heap of trouble, even by its sketchy standards. Some poor university student’s phone corrected “gonna go” to “gunman” and got a school put into lockdown by the police.
