Google has created an atmosphere of McCarthyism and a postage stamp-sized image of what the hell the world will look like if us hacks use the firm's latest creepy tool, dubbed Scribe. In case you're wondering, the opening sentence of this story was written (almost entirely) in the latest feature to hit Google Labs, which is …
If it can correct usage of There/They're/Their Your/You're etc. then the world would be a better place.
And it's not all that different from the auto-suggestion features you find on smartphones really (coming soon to Android do you think?).

I'm almost immune the there/their/they're now. My bugbear is the people who don't know how to spell would have/could have.
Speak Your Branes
It's the twat-o-tron v2!

A lot of work
just to sell a cookbook.

As Groucho said when asked, 'do you like Kipling?' - 'I don't know. I've never kippled.'
You will be assimilated
So *that's* what the developers of Buzz, Wave, WarDriv..(eh..it's not called that when *we* do it) et al have been moved onto.

If it can convert....
.. txt language into standard English it'll allow the txtng generation to create meaningful CVs. Which is probably a bad thing.
So it doesn't get my vote!
if the results...
