OAKWOOD, Ga. -- While Apple prides itself on being intuitive, that doesn't always mean intelligent.
The iPad and iPhone are certainly ingenious, and so are many other smart phones. But the word choices in auto-correct are often not very smart. That's because the feature doesn't seem to understand context.
A similar problem is what led to two schools in Hall County being put on lockdown for a couple of hours Wednesday.
Investigators say a college student was texting a friend that he was going to be at West Hall High. But the auto-correct feature on the phone made a change to the words he wrote.
"Gunna be at West Hall" was changed by the software to say "Gunman to be at West Hall."
We plugged in the same key words on three different iPhones and discovered that they made the exact same mistake.
