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 isn't a word! ;)

Seriously though, it is not Chrome! Poor article, but it has a few good points...

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.

Snuck isn't a word!

According to Merriam-Webster, it's the past and past participle of sneak

Poor article

It appears to have been written by someone who has absolutely no clue as to what Chrome OS is.

Of course it is a word... It was a reference to the clip where Jennifer Garner "corrects" Conan O'Brien. Check out the link from my last post. I laughed so hard. ;)

Indeed.
