    I could not believe it. Is the word "accomodate" NOT in the dictionary? I typed this inside a Chrome browser running on OSX Mavericks. I think the red underline is part of Apple's checking (is that true?). Is the blame on Google Chrome? Or OSX Mavericks? Such a common word should be in the dictionary somewhere!

    At least you didn't say it was 'rediculous' that it wasn't in the dictionary.

    It's incredible to me that someone would film, edit, and publish this without bothering to look at an actual dictionary first.

    No issues here. Across the whole OS and in Chrome, it corrects it to accommodate.

    Obviously something is borked on your end.

    It doesn't take a native speaker to know that it has two Ms; not to mention that the OS/browser correctly highlighted it as bad spelling.

    Is this the stupidest thread of the year or what?
