Whitehouse = whorehouse? That's not really a stretch is it? Does the smart phone know something John and Jane Q Public don't?

"divorce" instead of "Disney"
Smartphones don't recognize names (Whitehouse, Disney) and just put in any word that starts with the same two letters? I wonder what it would do with Clinton and Obama (I have a couple of ideas).
I hope the autocorrect is an option and can be switched off, otherwise some may end up flying out the window and smashing on the sidewalk. Good riddance!
