Journal superflippy's Journal: Eschew obfuscation 1

Someone twittered about the version of Firefox with an "orthographic corrector." I wondered why this was so great, and whether this was something I needed. So I went to the page they linked to and still didn't get information about this feature beyond the fact that it existed. So I looked up "orthographic" on Google: Of or pertaining to orthography, or right spelling.

That's right, orthographic corrector = spellcheck.

    Manager: We need a new feature in our product, so we can sell a new version and make piles of money.
    Toadie: How about we just rename some of the features with hard to understand words?
    Manager: It's brilliant!!

The bogosity meter just pegged.
