    Apple Cant Spell!

    Just thought I would give you guys a giggle ,

    I was filling in a contact form on the apple website this morning to be quite shocked to see there website has a spelling mistake on so I had to take a screen for you to see, see if you can find it,

    Just goes to show you even big vendors like Apple arent perfect

    There are quite a few errors I agree and it is surprising that paragraphs (no matter how small) aren't being double checked before posting online. It's a fact that poorly written English does generally lose customers.

    On the subject of Apple, it's articles like this that put me off completely. No respect for human life, but more of an interest in profit. It really is appalling.

    and probably "can't" and "aren't" and "didn't" but I've now given up spell checking - I stopped teaching word processing many years ago :-)

    There was me thinking that they just couldn't spell programmes

    EDIT: BTW... the comma before We should be a full stop.

    It wasnt really an Apple site, it was a scam site run by Nigerian fraudsters.
