It would seem like terrible timing to have to report earnings the day after announcing trip-ending malfunctions on two of your ships, and a month after an onboard fire has left one ship adrift in the Gulf of Mexico, with its passengers mired in their own waste for days on end.
And yet, your stock stays afloat. Sure, it opens down 4.7% on the news about the cancelled ships.
Today, I’ll be proofing a post from Rene Ritchie, iMore’s Editor-in-chief.
Our first example actually contains 2 typos in one sentence:
See if you can spot them both. I’ll give you a hint. It is apparent that whatever Rene uses to author content does not have a spell-checker.
Next we have ‘an’ where we should have had ‘a’. A common problem as you are revising a post and reword something placing a word that starts with a consonant where there was a vowel before. Still, easily identified and fixed with a quick proofread before publishing. If only there was an editor to do that.
Finally, we have a sentence that I’m not really sure what it is supposed to be, but I am fairly certain that this is not what Rene was thinking he was communicating as he typed it.
That’s all for now. Stop back often, because I am sure there will be plenty more examples to come.
I’m SO EXCITED! I just won $800,000 Canadian dollars. That’s gotta be at least $25 US dollars or something like that, right?
I know everyone is going to be JEALOUS when they find out that I won and THEY didn’t!
I LOVE Dr. Seuss!
My absolute favorite book (adult books included) is Oh, The Places You'll Go! I give it to every graduate and anyone else I can think of as a gift. The pop-up version is fabulous!
I also have many of the Dr. Seuss apps. The iTunes version of Oh, The Places You'll Go is read by John Lithgow…
So, the networks
with the Hopper from Dish Network.
Specifically, they are not happy that the service allows users to easily skip commercials. I got a Replay TV (Actually, a Panasonic Showstopper PVR) in 2000 that I used until they pulled the “lifetime” channel guide a few years ago. I paid a fortune for that, we need to work on the definition of “lifetime” I guess. The Replay TV had a button on the remote that would jump forward 30 seconds. Of course, Replay TV kind of flew under the RADAR, but it was a very handy feature when commercials came on.
I may not get a whole lot of love from this post because I'm afraid my views on the topic in this post may differ from the majority; i.e. This will be an opinion/editorial post that expresses my views and not the views of everyone.
I keep seeing reviews in the App Store that say things like "I want a refund" or "Apple should protect us from awful apps like this."
Wow. I don’t know where to start. So, you pop up a box after I order asking if I want to tell you about it. I get a survey monkey web site tab. No survey, I have to sign up, and then it wants me to create a profile and tell it how much I watch movies and eat out, then asks me about the economy and barack obama. What does any of this have to do with pizza. I cancelled that and deleted my account, but I’m sure they won’t send me useless e-mail and other spam. Thanks a lot for that. I know surveys are so hard to build on your own, that you decided to “outsource”, but maybe you could have chosen a site that doesn’t maliciously accost your customers.
Then, I come here to complain about that, and you make me supply name, e-mail address and mailing address. I mean, it frickin’ says “Welcome back Todd Whitehead” at the top of the page!!!!!!! How do you not know my name????
I wanted to fill out the survey to tell you that your ads really suck. The coupon codes are tiny and in a font that was clearly not chosen for usability. Go ahead and pick up one of your ads and tell me that the last digit of the coupon code for the $5 off online order isn’t barely distinguishable between a 3 and 5.
Oh well, I’m sure no one will actually read this, so I’ll just post it on my blog, FaceBook and Google+ where at least I’ll get the satisfaction of my friends sympathy.
