I think the second one was deliberate.

99.9% of these are deliberate. Most of the auto-corrected words are nowhere near what was the "intended" word.

Yep, especially since the X & R are not next to each other, and neither are the O & U....

I've had my phone autocorrect to words that have letters nowhere near what I was typing. With that said, most of these are fake lol

that has nothing to do with auto correct. that's just random typo stuff you are talking about. auto correct takes the word you are typing and inputs the word it "thinks" you are typing. I have had auto correct change many words on me. I had it change schoobus to schoolboys, once when I was talking about my niece riding the bus, so instead it said she rides the schoolboys!

Mike Deveaux I've seen autocorrect change "chocolate" to "cocksure", "more" to "muse", "that" to "Vietnam" and "roll" to something in Greek that means "polka" according to Google Translate. Not all autocorrects work the same.
