It should be disabled by default and part of parental controls only.

As well, AMD is banned along side sex. That's a new one.

Auto-correct, auto-complete and other predictive text technologies go a long way towards making your life annoying when you speak three languages and need to be at moments notice able to text in all three!

AMD is probably banned so that the word 'and' is not misspelled all the time.

I don't blame them for banning AMD from their vocabulary, it's a good choice.

That would be logical but highly unlikely since they banned Garmin also.

It's common sense that these would be blocked. The kitkat keyboard supports swiping. Take "AMD" for example. The vast majority of the population will never, ever use "AMD". They will constantly use "and". Imagine how annoying it would be if while swiping it regularly came up with AMD instead. or if you ended up calling someone a geek instead of Greek.

This is likely just a list of words that are rarely used by normal people and would be awkward/annoying if they accidentally popped up. I'm sure the more benign ones were an issue for testers. They are clearly blocked to improve usability of the keyboard/swiping.

Exactly what I was thinking. No one wants to accidentally put that extra "t" on "but" or to type "AMD" every time they say "and."

This story is trying to make something out of nothing.

George Carlin is a genius, I think he would have a few choice words around this ban list. How the hell did AMD get on the list? Maybe the cheque from nVidia has cleared.

AMD is actually an acronym for "All Must Die".... that could be the reason for not adding it to their dictionary of auto complete ....
Or America Must die in the Quake Gaming Clan circle....
Could be a major reason for blacking it out....

I don't understand the use of the word banned. Banned means you can't / are not allowed to use it. Auto complete not auto completing or auto fill not auto filling is a whole other matter. This is a useless piece of "news"
