On some searches in Google AU and NZ, I'm seeing different results based on capitalization?

Is this old news?

For over a year now there have been occasional reports about different search results for upper and lower case variations. But the reports are rare, so nothing seems to be well understood - it may even be an occasional test.

Here's the earliest report I know of here:

Was there anything ever confirmed by google or any studies done on it?
