well, when I type incorrectly, the red line appears underneath. It might have something to do with the fact that I finally uploaded soft wear on my Mac, which I did last night.

I noticed that. LOL. I didn't fool it. It fooled me.

Not need to call yourself stupid unless you are trying to take a dig at me in a twisted way:), which is not OK. I struggled for years with Windows and I like the Apple applications because I have no headaches anymore and the most important: no viruses. You should check it out.

No twisted ways from my part. I simply know that Mac/Apple is considered better than Windows, but I'm simply too old and too lazy for a change now ( because I've been using MS systems/programs for +15 years).

that is what I used to think. It appears that the Apple was able to predict that too and I was originally planning to get another brand. It takes a bit of time to adjust and it was hard at the beginning but I am loving it now.

Another issue with Apple is the price for certain models and I agree that other brands win over it that department. In a long run however it is worth spending the extra money because of the benefits.

Also, some of the Apple applications are very similar to Windows, so the switch was not brutal on my system at all, even for a person who is quite impatient with computers. It all the depends on the personal need I guess.:)

I'm not sure sure about that, he's still smarting from the last time malum. First it's a MacIntosh Spartan, last seen at Newton Pippen Cross then it's Spartan Macintosh with their mp3 players and irritatingly catchy tv advertisements.

Circle of life Scrumptious :)

but i use firefox browser

This is true because if you use Mozilla Firefox, on your top bar select tools/Add-ons a box will pop up, select get Add-ons/browse all add-ons, then you will be taken to the Mozilla Add-ons site. Just do a search for the language dictionary of your choice, install it, then when you make a misspelling it will be highlighted in red, right click for options :)

Yes, the new version of Firefox spell checks by default. For IE users, there's a tool to download too - iespell.com/download.php

Correct, but you can still change the language dictionary by going to Add-ons

Yes indeed Apple products are expensive but they ROCK!

Firefox

Can indeed be made to check many spellings in many languages it's a good browser for this reason.
