    Use proper capital letters and sentence case when submitting posts

    TECians,
    Many of you are not using the proper sentence case and not making the correct use of a capital letter. Note this list and submit posts properly, whether in an article, an Ask Expert query or answer or a Forum response:
    Windows and not windows (you are referring to a software and not part of a house)

    Google and not google (it is a company name so requires the first letter to be in capitals)

    Microsoft and not microsoft (also a company name)

    Apple and not apple (when you are not referring to the fruit, but the company)

    Blackberry and not blackberry (it is a brand)

    Android and not android (it is an OS so the first letter should be in capitals)

    Note also these:
    install and not Install (it should be in small case and first letter should be in capitals only if at the start of a sentence)

    smartphone and not smart phone (one word, not two separate words)

    iPhone / iPad (the 'p' should always be in a capital letter when referring to Apple products)

    All these are little things, but nevertheless important. After all, ours is a technology-related site and we must get our words & names right in every way.

    Thank you so much for reminding these. I will take care for these minor errors.
    To be frank,
    Your this post made a smile on my face. I like it that you wrote like Windows and not windows, you are referring "to a software and not part of a house". And furthers are also are funny.
