Paul F. Tompkins: Text Message Suggestions

My phone is awesome. When I'm writing up a text message, it tries to help me out. I'll tap in a couple letters, right? And then the phone will pop up some shadowy-ghosty letters next to the letters I typed in, completing a potential word -- as if to say, 'Is this what you mean?' And sometimes it is, and I say, 'Thanks phone. You have anticipated my needs like an attentive lover.'
