But you're probably an elite internet "power user" that can type 200wpm and spend 10+ hours on the internet every day. Ask regular Joe you meet somewhere or Grandma/Grandpa and you'll see why the big search engines have implemented and kept the auto-complete.
When most people type they look at the keyboard, type a letter or two, look back up at the screen, look back down and peck away some more. So the auto-complete serves a really useful purpose for them and gets them searching faster, minimizing the frustration caused by their own lack of typing skills and web saavy.
I hate it too, but I think that in this case it probably is necessary if the masses are to embrace DDG.
