The Robservatory

Robservations on everything…


We all make mistakes…

And Macworld (the printed version) had one in its June issue. For a challenge, see if you can find it--hint, it's somewhere between pages 50 and 60, but if you find it on your own, I'd be quite impressed. I didn't spot it myself; it was noted in a thread on a forum site.

If you don't have the magazine, or you can't find it, or you just want to see exactly what it was we did wrong, I wrote about the mistake on Macworld's new MacUser site. Suffice it to say we'll probably never see another product with a similar result!

The MacUser site is long gone, of course…but captured the writeup. Basically, a Canon camera was rated 5.5 out of 5 mice.

In the above article, I also cover what I consider to be the most amazing typo I ever saw--right on the cover of PC Magazine. To save you the read, this was year, the cover of PC Magazine's annual Technical Excellence awards issue consisted of an image of a large gold medallion. On that medallion, in large print, were the words "Tehcnical Excellence." Whoops!

  1. Thanks for joining us over on MacUser, Rob. :) I actually did notice the typo on my own, whlie perusing my copy of Macworld. Maybe the editorial staff should put typos in every issue; it could be a fun game for readers to track them down, like a treasure hunt. :)
