Blackberry maker doesn't consider nVidia to be a valid word
8/7/2009 by: Theo Valich
Few weeks ago, I was talking to a good friend of mine and she complained that the dictionaries on cellphones of today are nothing short of being ridiculous, and that he cannot understand why the makers of "wired phones" [phones with a permanent Internet connection] don't use online dictionaries.
Yesterday, I got contacted by a fellow from the marvelous IT industry who found a pretty hilarious dictionary inside his Blackberry 9000 Bold. Given that I have the same phone, checking this out was easy as a walk in the park.
The story is as follows… if you by some odd reason, turn the dictionary on [Options>Spell Check>Spell Check Email Before Sending and/or Check Spelling As You Type], typing the name of the company will get you quite a hilarious explanation.
Think what you want, we found this to be quite hilarious ;-)
If you type in nVidia, the Blackberry spell checker will advise you to change "nVidia" to nifty, Nevada, knifed, Naivete or even Neophyte - the last two were killers. Naivete of course, refers to naïve, or lack of experience. Yes, noob or rookie again. In case you didn't knew, Neophyte would be coined in gaming terms as "rookie priest" or a "noob priest".
For the record, AMD and Intel are both considered valid words by Blackberry, but if you type in ATI, spell checker will just advise you to change to AGI, ALI, ATM, ANTI and so on. It seems that RIM doesn't like GPU makers.
We're not exactly certain how RIM would react if Microsoft would offer a spell suggestion for Blackberry as a "Crackberry", "iPhone competitor" or the like. This spell checking indiscretion made our Friday.
RIM, Research-in-Motion, Blackberry, Crackberry, Dictionary, Blackberry dictionary, spell checker, nvidia, nvidia corporation, knifed, nevada, nephew, naivete, neophyte
