    I know, it's not a big deal, every body makes typo, but still...
    you would think, on apple.com where everything is supposed to be perfect, and yet you find something that's imperfect.

    spot it if you can?

    I'd say more like an 'omission' rather then a typo.

    "Addresses an issue prevents connecting to remote computers..."

    Not sure why there had to be a "game" of finding it, but there we are.

    Edit: Also, "Notification" is misspelled in one place.

    I simply didn't have the time/couldn't be bothered to
    read through all that to find a typo.

    I'm intrigued that you could be bothered and also spend large amounts of your spare time moderating a website forum without any payment.

    I guess it takes all sorts.

    How about in your OP? Instead of "every body makes typo", you should have written "everybody makes a typo". And then there's that capitalization omission leading your second and third sentence. :rolleyes:

    Not that you'd be a hypocrite? Who cares?

    I've written to Apple about typos and ungrammatical language use before. They never responded.

    The iTunes Store and the Mac App Store have a glaring ungrammatical use of language in that they don't use the direct-address comma when welcoming you. It says, "Welcome Mike," which in English syntax reads as a command rather than as a salutation. I've noticed most other companies get this right ("Welcome, Mike").

    i think the only thing i'd worry about is if the word 'never', for example, was missing from a sentence like this:

    "be sure to delete the System folder after the install is complete".

    mostly, i expect that misspelings are just a part of everyday life...even in a world with spellcheck...

    Spellcheckers do just that, but they don't context check, grammar check or "does this make sense" check, let alone "is this what I meant/need/wanted to say" check.

    Each of my daughters has had to learn that.... ;)
