Google Now and Google Translate bug ‘praises the iPad’January 7, 2013 2 Email article | Print article
Now this is definitely one of the stranger bugs we’ll come across. A bug in Google’s text-to-speech engine that affects the Google Now and Google Translate services causes it to add the phrase “he now praises the iPad” to sentences ending with “end with,” “enraged with,” and “filled with.”
The bug was actually discovered back in October, but has since gained publicity after various news sites began publishing the hilarious sentences people have come up with using the bug. One example being, “Larry Page used to use an Android. But that is now at an end, he now praises the iPad.” To see the bug in action, check out the video below:
It seems that Google has had enough of its own services praising the iPad, however, because of as writing, the bug seems to have been patched. Unfortunately for them, the internet never forgets.
