Fail - Fraud, fake! Autocorrect doesn't replace a word in ALL CAPS.
Damn You Autocorrect!:

Michael, it does if the person has typed it before. The dictionary on an individual's phone remembers new words--even if they aren't "real" words. All iPhone dictionaries are personalized once they are put into use. :)

then its not so much an "auto" correct, is it?
August 9, 2012 at 12:11 pm
Oh it's definitely auto, but it's not "correct" :P

Brian, two of your comments are unnecessary. DYAC is correct, they didn't state it was only way, just that it was A way an AC would show up. And again, any smartphone has some sort of predictive text/correction - even if it's not labelled as "Auto Correct" .... regardless of technical terms - it's all the same: silly mistakes that are shared in hopes to make people laugh/smile. I laughed :)

Brian Joslyn It is definitely not an attack!! And I definitely did not imply you were stupid! Holy Cow!!Do you have a grudge against this site or something? Definitely going to be careful from now on saying things on here!

It does it if the word you are typing is in Caps Lock.

Brian Joslyn let's take this point by point, her comment was called for, it wasn't an attack, you were wrong, I don't believe it, you may be stupid, they do run the site, they know more than you as proven in this comment thread, they stated it clearly and properly, and they didn't imply anything.
There I think that covered it all.

And actually, Brian Joslyn, you're right about not having to type a word in order for it to appear as an autocorrect. It does happen all the time. And in this case, the DYAC experts were wrong.
But seriously- Can we stop spamming the comment log with negativity and angry comments please?

Mine has, and it wasn't even anything I've ever typed :S

I just couldn't resist. For someone to get this worked up over an attempt at humor is even more amusing than the image itself could ever have been. You're arguing like any of this matters, like lives are at stake, but for the sake of my continued amusement I will comment again. They never stated that a word HAD to be typed by the user to end up in auto-correct what they said was that once the user starts entering words it becomes personalized, which does happen. Now I don't want you to finally understand this though I just want you to rage pointlessly at me again, because that shit's hilarious.

there's a setting were u can put every thing as caps.
August 9, 2012 at 8:43 pm
Yeah... it's called caps lock! It's rare the only an AC would appear as such.

Holy crap some of you folks take this stuff WAY too seriously. DYAC is funnier than hell - when it's an authentic AC. My initial post was meant - merely - to call-out a contrived scenario, obviously set-up for a DYAC post. It's like a laugh track on a cheesy 70's sit-com. If y'all think that's funny, knock your socks off and have a laugh. NOT the end of the world folks, I simply tossed out the BS flag on this one.
August 11, 2012 at 7:24 pm
That's cool and yes some people took that way to seriously. I joined in just because I enjoy poking people like that. I laughed at the post, and the crazy comments that followed lol.
