Apple has written the next sentence on this (http://www.apple.com/macosx/uptodate/) page:

"Mac OS X Panther includes more than 150 new features including a new Finder, a revolutionary way of intantly getting to the windows on your desktop called Exposé, and high quality video conferencing with iChat AV."

Thought that's funny, since I never spotted a single typo on one of Apple's pages before. Anyone did spot some?!...

:rolleyes:

the 17" powerbook page "boasted" a 1.25mhz G4 the day they were released

You missed it, it said "intantly" instead of "instantly"

I spotted one and reported it to Apple, but last time I checked they hadn't fixed it. When you go to the G5 Tech Specs, towards the bottom, they're talking about the USB ports, and every where else they say "one on front" but in this one part they mistakenly wrote "on one front". Not a big deal at all, but a mistake none the less.

Apple has a typo...if we hold them to the same standards as other companies...that might mean that they are fake or a scam?

Not every thread needs to be turned into an argument.

I have the distinction of spotting a typo in iTMS. Moby's song "Porcelain" was spelled "Procelain" or something like that.

It was the greatest moment of my life submitting that feedback :)

They also had Barbara Steisand. The funny thing is though, the last name was spelled correctly for about half the songs in the album, and missing the 'r' for the rest

I've always thought it'd be funny if company's put 'not responsible for tyopgraphical errors' in their disclaimers. Maybe it's just me . . . :p

Even worse, I found some broken links on their page. I sent feedback and they actually just removed the links.

At http://www.apple.com/powerbook/specs.html , they had a link for the words 12-inch, 15-inch, and 17-inch. When they linked to the pages, the number was in the wrong spot (12index.html instead of the correct index12.html). Looks like they just removed the links from the specs page altogether.
