    You should see me when I am on my phone. Tiny screen and super sensitive touch screen with tiny letters makes for some interesting words sometimes. :LOL: I very much prefer surfing the net especially posting on forums from my laptop.

    Also a laptop guy here. I wish my phone would leave my mistakes alone, they aren't near as bad as some of the gibberish auto-correct comes up with.o_O

    I leave auto-correct OFF. The mistakes you see are 100% mine due to the issues I stated above.

    I have one of the androids. to big to fit in the front pocket of jeans.
    My eyesight has got worse so if I am not wearing my glasses then some of the texts I send are questionable to the point that whoever I am texting usually call me and tell me to put my damn glasses on since they can not understand what my text says.

    I can read the fine print on the television across the room without glasses but I need them to read or anything closer than about arm's length. It sucks getting old(er). :cool:

    My Samsung phone is out just to embarrass me. I don't need glasses until the print gets really small. I looked at some of my text messages and they looked like I was typing with my elbows. I think my auto correct had a nervous break down and quit.

    All of these comments are both interesting and comforting. I just assumed a large number of members left school in the fifth grade. Nice to know it's just a blend of big thumbs and poor vision instead. Must say it had me wondering how those with such poor communication skills could possibly know as much about radios and antennas as they do. (n) All I could figure was that we had a handful of savants inhabiting the site. :ROFLMAO:

    I've called that before. Describing me the Psychiatrist said, "SAVANT, Idiot" I'm not sure if I should be mad or not.

    They make them big so you can't put it in your shirt pocket and button it. That way it falls out when you pick up something off the floor and breaks.

    Remember Joe Pesci's rant about cell phones in Lethal Weapon 4? Same thing but somewhere between then and now the phones started getting bigger.

    Can reconfigure a 6 pill to work on pirate frequencies but can't get the twist tie off a loaf of bread? I think he was paying you a compliment. (y)
