Google and Apple eat each others spelling corrections

September 2, 2010 One Comment

My iPhone autocorrects "Van Persie" to "Van Perdue". Clearly the ever-injured Arsenal and Holland striker isn't well known enough at Apple HQ.

Van Persie to Van Perdue

Van Persie to Van Perdue

If as a result you end up searching for Van Perdue (because you don't notice and so don't undo the autocorrect), Google asks if you mean Van Persie.

Van Persie to Van Perdue to Van Persie

Van Persie to Van Perdue to Van Persie

To sum the process up:

  • You try to seach for Van Persie on your iPhone.
  • Apple changes this to Van Perdue.
  • Google asks if you meant Van Persie.
  • You click and finally get to results for Van Persie.

End to end process sorted.
