Now go by some reading glasses.

What good will that do, unless I turn round and go back? Typical millennial - it doesn't matter if your shit is unreadable because it's not worth reading anyway.

Or they were using a touchscreen and it didn't register the 'u' because they were typing too fast. Happens all the time on my slower iPhone 4. Also, the spelling (by vs buy) wouldn't be underlined as a misspelling because it's correctly spelled.

Steve Jobs was a low-tech parent and there was a reason behind it... he may have been an assh*le, but he wasn't dumb.

There's this really nifty thing called a Google Doodle... PUT IT THERE!

Transparent and Google are almost contradictory, nowadays.
