Google With the announcement of its new Search app, Google gave iPad users more than just a slick and well-made native search app that bests the experience on any Android tablet. It also managed to squeeze the core elements of Chrome OS into Apple's ecosystem.

Snuck is indeed a word. Standardized English is an artificial construct that ignores, and often defies, natural, spoken dialects.


Not sure who modded you down, but I agree!!

Spoken language is NOT meant to be standardized! This is a 'recent' phenomenon. Natural language trumps any codex -as can be observed in action- by the formation of new languages through vernacularization.

When the general consensus is that "hung" should be used in preference to "hanged," then that use case can, and should, trump the rules. Natural language is by consensus, not decree.
