My iPad autocorrects my grammer, so I don't even have to think about it! Not sure why it doesn't work for taco though.

Lol. I'm sure Taco posts most of the time from his computer. And it's not so much his grammar or spelling but his punctuation that isn't up to par, which autocorrect isn't necessarily going to fix.

Still, it makes it that much easier to tell that you're not him because of this.

I have to ask, do you post under another name here on Phonearena? Or were you a lurker until you created this profile?

And btw, if Taco is impersonating me in any way, I'd say snaggly is the profile he uses.

You might still have to worry about "snaggly," though, lol.

*shrugs* I'm not even worried about snaggly. He's done a subpar job so far of impersonating me. I expect that if he continues to do such a shabby job he will be the subject of much derision from myself and other members here. :)

The creative team behind Star Trek should sue Apple ASAP. The "PADs" were conceived way before the iPad and that vague drawing and they have a full TV show to prove it. LOL this patent and lines copyrighting thing is out proportion. That's why lawyers and tech don't mix.
