I'd argue only this far: you are not *not* considered.

There are several camps of people with differing needs and uses whose
considerations drive the development of the product. Many customers *did*
ask for autocorrect and continue to use it. Personally, I've typed many
fewer documents containing the non-word 'teh' (Heh, Outlook is keeping me
from typing it even now!<g>).

Regarding the Bulkers of the world; Notice MS has effectively launched a
small war against this faction with a recently filed lawsuit.

While I would like to see MS change several things about their products and
way of doing business, I do recognize that the computer industry itself is
still much too predatory for the kind of changes I'd like to see there. But
I will argue with anyone who feels this monster of a company could get to
this position without attempting to digest feedback from all directions. I
believe that sort of stupidity/corporate arrogance would mean their position
of power would have been eroded long ago.
