Sleek and slick

On Jan 21st I wrote a blog about the Ipod Touch. I used the word "slick" to describe the iPod Touch, but I have since corrected it to "sleek". You see, a few days ago I was reading the ads in the newspaper and there were two different ads in which one used "slick" and the other used "sleek" to describe their products. Upon checking the dictionary, I am quite sure the intended word is "sleek", which means well-groomed and neatly tailored. Many people mistakenly use the word "slick which usually is used to describe something slippery. That also includes a "slick salesman", which I'm sure you'll know what I mean!
