So anyway, Wikipedia says Nov 2004 is when HL2 was released, and while it might not have been the first, thats still 5.5 years ago they were implementing what blizzard seems to be implementing here.
It really has been a while since we had un-restrictive drm in games. Funny how we just get used to it after a while...
Ah, the religion of technology. So amazingly worthless.
Your right all sports are fixed.
Perhaps it is mainly in the web forms where it really slows down, but I tend not to use it for that - in the SMS interface and the facebook app it is very responsive.
It would be nice to be able to go back and correct the autocorrect if it picks the wrong word if you are going too fast - a double tap or something that could pop up a list of options, or the ability to just type the word you meant and replace it without having to delete.
As far as I know, you can't "officially" add words to the database - it just seems to learn based on the times you correct it and is more likely in future to offer words that you use when you overrule it. It also learns words and terms that you frequently capitalise, and looks up people's names from your address book as a spelling source so I guess you could use an ugly hack of adding a list of words as a contact to your address book that it would then use as a source.
I don't type in web forms very much with it at all, so I am not seeing the super slowdown - I do notice that the phone generally struggles with performance in the web browser, so I guess it is not surprising and would make the keyboard a pain to use.
Life is cheap, but the accessories can kill you.
