I just died a little inside.
I always shake my head when you get an email from an admin girl* who has changed their signature to be in some kind of spangly pink italic font, normally shortly followed by ‘XXXX – voted the UK’s most professional engineering team 2013’ or similar. Sigh.

Just received a work email from a contractor and I’m not even angry at the iPhone signature, just disappointed.
“Sent from my iPhone which decides on how to spell things which is wrong most of the time, it also thinks it knows what I want to say so my email does make sense then let me know.”

It’s funny how much people that can’t spell complain about the iPhone’s inability to spell.
My sister is dyslexic and she hates it.
(granted it does always replace “its” with “it’s” which really annoys me)
You know iphone autocorrect learns words you often use. All the DYAC posts you see where people end up being foul-mouthed with their parents/partners simply reflect how they talk to everyone else.
Also the it’s/its autocorrect is context dependent: the phone is often (but not always) correct. That’s better than most folk manage!Posted 3 years agobrassneckSubscriber
Anyone using a “sent from my xyz device” signature should be shot to death.
I think I do.
It’s the default signature on my Android email client and I never bothered to change it.
So do I. It’s shorthand for ‘No , I’m not at my desk right now hanging on your every word and desperate to move continents just for you RIGHT NOW because you have been mildly inconvenienced by something or other’.Posted 3 years agoNotterSubscriber
Died a little inside? From a “Sent from my iPhone” email footnote??!! Can I suggest you refrain from interacting with any more technology, definitely don’t talk to or be in the vicinity of the younger generations and definitely don’t do any more interweb stuff. Your life expectancy would be shocking!Posted 3 years ago
I remember overhearing someone boasting to a friend that they had an iPhone, “its amazing” she said, “you can do shopping lists on it”.
So you spent £500 on a shopping list writer? FFS.
Fair play to the marketeers for creating the need for something most people don’t know what to do with.Posted 3 years agoCountZeroMember
Thanks to a friend, my ‘sign-off’ for emails says iPhone????Posted 3 years ago
And if I’m communicating with people I know, I always just put my initial, as it’s ridiculous to use one’s full name with someone who knows exactly who you are.
If it’s an email that’s more formal, then it gets the correct sign-off; Yours Sincerely or Yours Faithfully, as is only right and proper.
Really, though, this is just like the language thread, getting all het-up about it is just so Daily Mail, there are more important things going on in the world to be concerned about, surely?
