    "soard"?

    What the heck does "spamming soard" mean? Perhaps "soared" is what was meant?

    C'mon, people... I'm tired of seeing horrible grammar in what are purported to be "news" posts - but at a minimum, can't we at least use a spell checker?

    spelling

    Maybe they are postings from a Windows computer? When writing from a work PC I miss the most the built in spell checker on the Mac. I have to paste everything, this included, into Outlook for spell checking.

    Such pompous attitudes

    A simple polite "Hey, fix the typo" sent directly to MacNN would have done the trick.

    Or is your self-esteem so low that you must point out others' mistakes to make yourself feel better?

    The next time you publicly point out errors, you should probably take care not to make them yourself. It is not a grammattical error, it is clearly a typographical error. Even if it wasn't, it would be a spelling error, not a grammatical one.

    response

    iolaire: Good point on the non-ubiquitousness of spell-checking - I'll admit to certainly being spoiled by several of the niceties of Mac OS X, and unfortunately don't consider the situations of those who might not always benefit from the same.

    And, hayesk: Agreed that a simple communication to MacNN would have addressed the concern more directly than venting/ranting in comments.

    But my point about grammatical errors was not (necessarily) related to this particular post. When entering the above comment, I had just finished reading several other "news" articles which were incredibly difficult to actually comprehend, due to basic mistakes in grammar. (e.g. http://www.ipodnn.com/articles/06/12/27/itunes.visits.on.christmas/ ) It's frustrating to see glaringly-obvious terminology mistakes, or "where/were", or "their/there" transpositions (or the like), so often in such articles, and causes me to fear for the ongoing professionalism of this form of media.

    My comment was a bit harsh, however - so thanks to both for pointing it out. "pompous"? No - but arguably not necessarily applicable to the current post, and therefore not germane to the discussion at hand.

    FYI - David Pogue has an excellent recent post which seems appropriate here: http://pogue.blogs.nytimes.com/2006/12/14/14pogue-email-2/ Alas, it seems that the Eternal September may not be over, after all...
