While we are on the subject, did the most recent iOS update completely eliminate the ability to place a cursor inside a previously typed word to correct it? It highlights the whole word and will let me replace the whole word but it won't let me drop the cursor within a word?

That could be. I ran into that, but was too caught up in what I was trying to do to see if there was some other way you're suppose to do that now.

ETA
Okay, I just played around with it in Messages. If you're typing a message and you want to edit something, you can tap in the text field and the cursor will appear at the end or beginning of a word. You can then drag the cursor to where you want it. I think I'll like this much better once I retrain.

I think it might be contextual. If I have the onscreen keyboard up it zooms with the cursor. But if there is no keyboard it only highlights the word.

Yeah. You shouldn't really need to get inside a word if you're not typing.

Disagree. My most common typo is hitting v instead of space between 2 words. Sucks because you get one big word that autocorrect never fixes and then you really just want to remove the one letter.

When you see the cursor, you have to basically drag it to the new spot instead of using the magnifying glass.

Yeah, I googled and found it. But not before downloading imaps (which I've since deleted).

So I went out shopping on the day before Halloween and entered the store's seasonal candy aisle, thinking to buy a bag of something Halloween-themed to pass out to beggars tomorrow -- but the entire aisle was nothing but Christmas candy.

Too soon, guys. Too soon.

It was inevitable once we let Christmas come over the Thanksgiving Line.

We are being invaded!

I like the march of holidays, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years. They're all good and all in their own way.
What I don't like is dragging them out. Halloween is at the end of the month, there's no damned reason at all to start putting out costumes and candy in September. Christmas of course is completely out of control. I also don't like people getting all tetchy about their religious beliefs and practices around Festivous.

It is pretty bad if you're not creative or skilled in the manufacture or assembly of sartorial ideograms and find horror movies lame.

Two solid months of godawful Halloween songs, Halloween decorations left up into February, Ugly Halloween Sweater parties at work, the expectation to buy and exchange thoughtless and needless Halloween gifts, and of course the excruciating Halloween dinner with your aged racist family, which you have no excuse not to attend because nothing is open on Halloween. Oh yeah and the cultural conservatives constantly pounding the drum of how Halloween is supposed to be about Ba'al and how the liberal media is killing Halloween.

Considering the number of stories about 'offensive' and 'culturally appropriating' costumes, I can certainly subscribe to that last bit, especially when you throw in the 'tampered candy' stories (which are almost always fake).

So back to this shit. I found the Find My app, and my friends, or more accurately friend, was still there and I could find them. But I've been searching and googling, and I can't find any way to add a new friend. I found a setting to "Allow Friend Requests", but no way to actually send a Friend Request.
