You know your spell checker is dated when ...
It highlights words like:
Google (capital or small), come on, Google has been around for at least 10 years.
Facebook, as odd as it seems, some spell checkers choke on this one too!
iPhone (or iphone, Iphone), for heck's sake, this name has been floating around since 1996 (the original iPhone was a soft VoIP client)
VoIP, yeah it's about time! This is not a typo. This thing has been around forever by internet standards
Nokia, yeah, if spell check flags this one, it's pre-historic!
Other terms that should be in your spell checker or it's crap...
Twitter, txt, Tweet, MySQL, Bebo, MySpace, Gmail, Flickr, Tumblr, Blog, Blogger, Blogging, Aggregator, Commentor in other words, just everything you can find on a DECENT technology blog!
And my favorite:
Quran! Qur'an, Koran. Now this one has been around for, oh, a few centuries. About time it made it into the spell checker! Instead of adding things like Gestalt and Shtick.
