I've seen the term "Springs" on a few resumes lately. Obviously it means Spring. But it seems like an odd thing to have a typo on. Is this a regional thing where is called/translated to "Springs" somewhere?

I've gotten resumes where the applicant misspelled company names, technology names, and once, even their own name.
The "lack of attention to detail" is not a good explanation IMO. The reason is, a person don't provide attention to details to stuff that they don't care about. And if someone don't care about a career, what about the job? What about the projects? etc.
In other words, this explanation leads to the conclusion that a person doesn't care about the position that he/she is applying for.
I feel that any misspelling in the resume is acceptable but definitely not in the technology names. It makes me think that the guy has just added the technology to his resume without even knowing what it is.
