One thing I can appreciate about having an iPhone is its “smartphone” capabilities. I enjoy that it always seems to know what I’m thinking, using predictive intelligence, based on how I use it. That usually helps me become more efficient, but sometimes I laugh a little when my iPhone seems to “call me out” on my behavior that has gone too far.
10 Signs I Might Be Too Addicted to Points and Miles… According to My iPhone:
- When I use the word “honors” and “advantage” in their correct context, they are autocorrected to “hhonors” and “aadvantage”, respectively.
- On the topic of autocorrects, when typing a three-letter word that starts with s and ends with x, my iPhone automatically assumes I mean my other favorite 3 letters – SDC. Shows priorities, I guess.
- However, autocorrect never seems to kick in when talking geography using airport codes. To add to that, when I type “Ew”, my phone automatically assumes I mean “EWR”.
- As soon as I type the letter B into my browser, down comes BoardingArea.com; F brings me to FlyerTalk, U, United.com and so on. Seth recently posted, along similar lines, saying that his day would be more productive if these sorts of things didn’t happen to him.
- There are more pictures of airplane wings and hotel bathrooms in my photo gallery than pictures of friends, family, pets, etc.
- Google maps gets more usage in foreign cities than in my home country.
- My weather app displays the forecast for the next 10 cities I’ll be in… over next few weeks.
- 90% of the notes in my notepad app are related to tracking miles, minimum spend, and trip ideas.
- This one is a bit painful to admit, but I think I have more airline and hotel call-centers in my contacts than people I talk to on a regular basis.
- I try to group all of my apps into related folders on my home-screen. What started out as “Travel” has now become “Travel 2” and “Travel 3”.
Can anyone relate? How has your phone “called you out?”
