It doesn't take many (if any) brains to be a tech journalist!

    So here we are - the predictable and underwhelming release of the iFad 2, and T3 seem to be all over it, 9-year-old spelling errors 'n' all!

    http://www.t3.com/news/ipad-2-uk-release-confirmed-on-orange-and-t-mobile?=54013

    I quote:

    It will "after" twice the CPU power? Really? Not "offer" it, then?

    Who hires these idiots?

    For more hilarity at the expense of T3 tech "journalists", just search for their so-called "reviews" on YouTube, sit back with a cuppa coffee, and prepare to laugh your pants off!

    I mean honestly - a nine year old could summise that this word was glaringly out of context, and wrong. I am astounded that this went to press without being proof read :D :D :D

    Really? All this anger and name-calling over some typos? Oh MR Forums, you never cease to amaze me. :rolleyes:

    I can't stand it when people expect me to read something which they haven't even made any effort to write properly or even proof-read. I'm not talking about those who suffer from dyslexia, but rather just plain old sloppiness.

    I get annoyed with typos on websites like the BBC News.

    I saw "fo" instead of "of" during a main story. 2 hours later, the story was updated with additional information, but the typo was still there! Argh!
