More evidence that the world’s consumers are switching to tablets and smartphones to replace their aging computers: Global PC sales declined nearly 5 precent last quarter. Yikes!

Filed under: Main — Tags: — admin @ 12:01 am

Microsoft trained everyone to love AutoText from Word zero through Word 2003. Then that happy feature was abused in Word 2007, mugged in Word 2010, and stands for execution in the up-coming Word 2013. What’s an Autotext lover to do?

Copy-paste. Cut-paste. It’s all basic computer stuff, nothing I need to explain. That is, unless you want to know where the copied or cut item went.

When Predictive Text Goes Bad

Filed under: Main — Tags: — admin @ 12:01 am

One of the great feature of typing on a mobile device is predictive text. It adds grace to the onscreen keyboard by guessing the next best word and letting you choose that word without having to endure excess typing. But often it can lead to unbridled woe.
