Google Search Suggestions Smarter? Abbreviations Working?

Let me start off by saying I rarely use Google's search suggestions, so I am going by hearsay in the forums (which I mostly do anyway). A WebmasterWorld thread is of the general consensus that Google's search suggestions are getting smarter and figuring out abbreviations.

For example, if you type in glgle, Google thinks you mean Google:

Google Suggestions Smarter?

Same with aho and other forums of "fat fingered" typos.

I noticed something like this just today when I missed typing two internal letters in a company name. Yes, very fat fingered typing on my part, but Google's suggestions stuck out at me as something I'd never noticed before.

So maybe this is new, again, I have no idea. If it is, it is something SEOs and SEMs should be on the look out for.
