Yeah, I saw that in my email today and did a double take. I figured it was correct on the web site. Thanks for posting that.

I do have a question regarding Macbook Air if anyone can help. I have 2 Macbook Air laptops and I need to get them both to complete factory specs. We are giving them to our daughter and her husband and I need to get what little is on them completely cleaned off. I do not have a CD/DVD to install or reinstall anything and can find nothing helpful when I search online.

Original Poster: I do apologize for being off topic and I will refrain from it in the future after this question, I promise.

I see this happen from time to time. It's a giggle every time.

Oh well ...
Still fun to see this once and while, only showing why I have a love/hate relationship with *Auto-Correct*.

Since I am not a *native* English speaker, I often write in another language besides English.
The corrections that come up are often hilarious.

@ the rest of the Gang here:
If you have any funny ones, appropriate for this section, please post here ?

LBNL, I really appreciate many of the posts here.
Almost anything I want to know, is available here.

It reads 4GB, you click on it, it shows 4TB, you order it and receive a 1TB.
Talk about scrambled egg special!

If you have Lion or Mountain Lion installed, you would boot up from the Recovery partition (hold the `option` key while booting up and select the `Recovery` disc. You can then format using whatever level of Secure Erase options you feel are necessary, and do a fresh install of OS X all without an optical disc.
