We were so excited when the new iPhone update came out recently because
it made the keyboard landscape (and larger). After so much time with a
tiny touchpad, this seemed like it would great. Great like we
thought it would be when we finally figured out how to turn off the
auto-correct feature. I hated that words kept being changed to words I
didn't intend. Every time I typed pic it turned into pig. I type pic a
lot. Every time I typed fuck it turned into duck. iPhone has a thing
for farm animals. But, since I turned off auto-correct, nothing I type is
spelled right. Now that we have landscape keyboard on our phones,
ergonomical arched keyboards on our desktop computers and flat keyboards on my
laptops, we can't type AT ALL on anything. Nothing is in the same place
My fingers keep automatically going to the same places and everything is wrong.
My husband works odd hours. Sometimes those night scenes you see on CSI really are filmed in the middle of the night! On those days when he is sleeping in the day while I am working from home, I turn the ringer on our phone off so he doesn't wake up and want lunch. A few months ago I turned the ringer back on and found out that the ringer stopped working. I went to Target to get a new phone but all the phones had answering machines attached and I didn't need that so I got a candy bar and a t-shirt and left. I never bothered to get a new phone that rings because most people just text me, call my cell phone, or email if I don't call them back. Or they should do that. I forgot about the phone* that never rang. Now that I can't type to save my life, I'm thinking it'd be a good time to get a home phone that rings. What if Eddie Vedder calls? I need a way to hear that.
*It's been GREAT never having to hear that silence before a telemarketer mispronounces my simple name.
