Auto-Correction!

Those killjoys at Apple have corrected auto-correct, but the memories live on at The Message…
While the worst you could do on a mobile phone a few years ago was send an inappropriate drunk message (or perhaps throw it at someone in fury, if you’re Russell Crowe), the advent of the iPhone has meant that every day, thousands of people get themselves into digital pickles because of a feature that is actually meant to make the iPhone easier to use.
The autocorrect feature on the iPhone has caused so many miscommunications that it has spawned a number of websites, purely dedicated to airing the hilarious texting faux pas that come about due to this ‘helpful’ little function. Here are a few doozies to keep you cackling…

 
 

 
 

 

 
Thigh-slappingly funny as these are, alas the feature has been improved so that less of these entertainingly confusing situations arise. After Android phones brought in a feature that allows the user to pick from a range of words, rather than simply changing it for them, Apple jumped onboard as well with its new operating system.
Thank God the Internet caught on and archived this hilarity before it was too late…

Love in a content climate

The Message presents… G-Male and Siri: A Love Story
What with the rivalry between Facebook and MySpace (only one winner there), Apple and Samsung (could be closer than many would have predicted even a month ago), Google and… well, everyone… wouldn’t it be nice if we could all just get along?
Sometimes, it takes a non-human to teach us how to be human after all…

Going for Goldman

The online content pranksters who brought you Angelina Jolie’s leg are at it again…
On Wednesday, the New York Times published a damning op-ed written by Greg Smith, a former executive director for Goldman Sachs. The piece explains in detail why he is leaving the company after 12 years of service, and paints an ugly (though unsurprising) picture of the culture within the firm.
The piece – entitled ‘Why I Am Leaving Goldman Sachs’ – has been passed around the Internet like a virtual hot potato, and has already sparked several trending topics on social media.
While the viral piece is indeed a great read, it has also become something of a meme, with several Internet merry-makers snapping up the chance to write their own spoofs.
The Daily Mash has published a pretty clever example – a letter from Darth Vader explaining why he has quit the empire.
Andy Borowitz, a comedy writer, has penned a spoof client letter from Goldman Sachs, advising shareholders that Joseph Kony will be henceforth taking over their accounts.
There are a whole host of memes circulating at the moment, and surely more to come, and we at The Message are waiting with baited breath for the ‘Sh*t People Who Are Quitting Goldman Sachs Say’ video…

Steve Gets Animated

Video content is a great way of getting your message across. Here’s a prime example…
 
In the coming weeks and months, we’ll no doubt see the new Steve Jobs biography reviewed from every angle, opinion and bias possible. Next Media Animation has certainly set the bar high, however, bringing the contents of the biography to life in an entertaining (if not particularly subtle) animation.
This is one you really need to see, so check it out!
