Just noticed that Joel of Joel on Software wrote-quoting I think- at the end of his latest blog entry: 'Google uses Baysian filtering the way Microsoft uses the IF statement'
he follows this with an example of his own citing the difference in approaches to spell-checking.
Interesting point and one I hope other readers will enjoy.
