Ok Google Is Not Okay! It's Spelled Wrong.

A Google Web Search Help thread has a couple of searchers who are upset with Google's use of English. Specifically in their marketing and use of "Ok Google" for the hot word to trigger a search. They want Google to spell it either "OK Google" or "Okay Google" but not "Ok Google."

Ok is not a word, OK is.

Ok Google

One searcher said:

It is absolutely outrageous that Google's search application contains one misspelt word.

I am not sure if it is outrageous, I assume there is a reason for this. OK vs Ok is not a huge difference is space, so I am not sure why Google went with the lowercase version?

Does this bother you?
