Buying some stuff from Amazon

I’m buying the Lonely Planet Planet 2010 calendar and the first season of Criminal Minds for my sister. I typed in the location where she is so the company can ship direct to her, and I found this interesting feature: it spell checks the address. and makes recommendations, and gives a selection to pick your original or the corrected entry. In my case, the spelling of the location is determined to be bad, so it has a suggestion for me, but I believe the spelling I have is correct. But anyway….

That’s really handy! It could have helped the christmas card that some friends sent me early december that took a month and a half to arrive: each of the street name, town, and canadian postal code had spelling mistakes.
