Lenovo has trouble with English (ThinkPads Cheating Death)

#1 Post by micrex22 » Sun Jan 08, 2017 12:14 am

I wasn't deliberately seeking these spelling or grammatical errors, but it seems like China's Lenovo has a lot of them on their 'Thinkpads cheating death' article.

  • "but none of that components to what your're about read."
  • "Here are a few amazing-but-true stories from ThinkPad's recent history"
  • "Anybody can do 6 feel - but can you do it from the ceiling?"
  • "when someone was soliciting ideas to highlight the famous spill-resistant ThinkPad keyboard, we Garrett"
My favourite is "WE GARRETT!" The second one is hotly debated; it follows poor grammatical exercise popularized by the Apple Corporation. So, it should be from THE ThinkPad's recent history. If you were doing a documentary on cheetahs and said: "and now we look at cheetah's recent history" it just sounds wrong. Unless cheetahs, MacBooks and ThinkPads are now considered as people.
