I was recently searching for some Belkin stuff in Google, but accidentally mistyped Belkin as Belkikn. Strangely enough, Google's spell checker produced an interesting result:
Google - Belkin = D-Link

I guess Google likes D-Link more than Belkin? :P

    @Valiant: Yeah, I just fixed the problem with my forum

    @Joe: Yeah, it is quite funny :P Problems like this seem to happen with every spell checker...
    On another forum I go to (http://www.whirlpool.net.au), if you type thankyou in, the spell checker recommends doesn't as the correct spelling :P

    Actually the reason why DLINK came up when you did the Belkin Search is because DLINK has bought google ads and belkin has not. Im sure relevent belkin pages still came up. the Did you mean is part of the ad thing google has. So its not a mistake, its advertisment in the working.

    Then there is the fact that you misspelled "Belkin"!!!

    You spelled it as Belkikn. If i was google i'd return a response like it did as well since the input was incorrect.

    John, I know that I misspelt Belkin, it's the fact that Google's spell checker suggested "D-Link" that was funny ;)
