  • People are way too focused on getting things done fast rather than getting them done well. Imagine: It's 2015, and TextMessage shorthand has replaced correct English as the written language of English-speaking nations. You open up the newspaper and …
  • Autocorrect is the absolute worst feature in Office. Rather than rely on Word to correct your work, invest the effort into making it correct the first time. And no, Pages does not have Autocorrect.

  • Well, for anyone who wants to know, I'm currently working on a Cocoa word processor that basically is Keynote for word processing. So, if Apple isn't working on one, don't despair, because one is coming .
