Microsoft spell checker

Ever noticed that the spell checker in Microsoft Word knows names like IBM, Hewlett Packard, Toshiba and Sony but struggles with Google, Facebook and MySpace? Makes Word look like the parent that can’t quite speak like a teenager. Funny though that the spell checker in Google’s blogger doesn’t question any of the names…

    All very well but how on earth can you mis-spell Google? My six year old would get that right without ever having seen the word. I suppose if you were German you might write it ‘Gugel’ but other than that there is simply no excuse.

    The thesaurus function gives you a similar insight into MS when you enter the word ‘underdog’. It suggests: loser, small fry, runner up, second best, little guy.
