    Yep, he’s setting a good example…read and learn

    My wife says Ralph is me! I have a tough time texting as the buttons are way too small…and if I would buy a phone that is large enough to text (with larger keys), I’d need to carry a back pack as the phone would be too large to put in my pocket. :-)

    Punch the keys with a round, but firm, toothpick. Problem solved.

    Strange as it may seem, Ralph has, in Panel 5, put his finger on exactly what is the main reason why many people in America can’t spell for $#it anymore. Typos are one thing, even I’m guilty of those, but when I see people frequently using “rediculous,” “seperate” or “prolly” for ridiculous, separate and probably, I have to wonder. When I typed this post, the misspelled words appear underlined in the “comment” field. You would think that others would take those underlines as a hint.

    Oops, I meant to say “underlined in red in the ‘comment’ field”.

    At least his heart is in the right place. It would be funny too, or maybe not so much, if Ralph’s text was perfect, and it got the same reaction.

    This is why you get a cellphone with auto-complete typing. Most modern Android cellphones running Version 4.0 or later of the software include this capability.

    Or better yet, get a cellphone with auto-complete typing. I have a Samsung Galaxy S III and the auto-complete feature means I don’t end up typing gibberish like Ralph just did….

    The auto-suggestions were pretty good when I had Android 3.0, but 4.0 almost never puts up the word I’m trying to type.

    I’m one of those people who usually spell out everything, although I allow myself an occasional “thx” — that’s it.

    Just buy an iphone…you can send a voice activated text. No more typing at all.

    I can do that with my android that cost a lot less.

    TrapperJohn: Because: 1) school boards have decided it costs too much to teach things that compete with multinational corporations’ products and no longer teach it; and 2) parents can’t be bothered to teach their kids useful skills at home.
