Pet hates #436

The use of ‘mike’ instead of ‘mic.’ It’s a shortening of ‘microphone.’ Tsk.

(example in this article, which I’m reading because it was linked from Robert Sharl’s post here, on which I can’t comment because I don’t have a Google account, or something. Robert: you’ve seen the video from TED of the Microsoft SeaMonkey/Photosynth demo, right? If CoreAnimation makes that sort of thing easier to implement, I’m all for it. Yes, we’ll get pointless crap too, but we have that now, it’s just uglier than it will be.)
