The ignorance of 'the'

Correct grammar is also not available.
    Every Mac user, including the ones that make the signs for the retail stores, have an app installed on their computer called 'Dictionary', but Apple act as if the word 'the' is forbidden. If they did a spotlight search for 'the', they'd notice a definition comes up, and should pay particular attention to the 3rd point down. I can only imagine on corporate computers it comes up with something like this:
used to make a generalized reference to something rather than identifying a particular instance he taught himself to play violin.
