Jim Guilland, a Gold Bar, Wash., reader, regarding QT’s reminder that the first syllable of “gigabyte” is pronounced JIG, writes:
“My older dictionary pronounces it with a ‘J.’ My newer one uses the hard ‘G.’ Looks like common usage might win out here.”
But the U.S. Bureau of Standards will still disagree.
And did QT forget to mention that “GIF” is pronounced JIF?
This is according to the inventor of the Graphics Interchange Format.
And as far as sources jo, that’s as jood as it jets.
