This afternoon I was typing a document in Microsoft Word that included the phrase creme de la creme. It was for my use only, so I wasn't concerned about taking the time to figure out the software shortcut to add the accent marks which would make it the more correct crème de la crème.
However, much to my surprise the software autocorrected my typing for me, deciding on its own that my document needed to be flawless. Its helpfulness was just a little creepy.
