The Verge tests Apple's Quicktype feature on famous quotations.

One of the new features of Apple’s new mobile operating system iOS8 is QuickType, a feature that predicts words and autocompletes phrases the user’s typing. From the beginning The Verge has been making fun of this feature for its tendency to incorrectly autocomplete thoughts, but recently did a great piece where they typed in the beginnings of famous phrases from history and pop culture and let the feature completely butcher the endings.

Here are some of the best (human text is bolded, Quicktype text regular), and there’s more at The Verge:

One of the quotes was definitely right though, so kudos to Quicktype for knowing the Baha Men.
