Misspelled Searches

Nobody can spell perfectly all the time, but it's a good thing search engines are better able to deal with phonetic craziness, as shown by this Yahoo Buzz article by Vera H-C Chan.

Then, there are people's names. In a polyglot America, no one rule governs the spelling of proper names. While legions of young girls have glommed onto 12-year-old Web sensation Justin Bieber, a few searchers have referred to him as that "Justin Beaver" singer.

Tee hee hee!
