ITT: How you pronounce computer related acronyms.

PNG is pronounced "ping"

GIF is pronounced "jiff"

JPG or JPEG is pronounced "jay-peg"

These are not matters of preference or opinion.

Haha, I like this thread XD

I knew the other two, I pronounced the "g" in "gif", so I guess it's time to switch it up :P

I've never heard of PNG being called "ping," because usually 'ping' is in relation to IP ping.

Check the Wikipedia page bro:

Also

.swf = swiff
SQL = Squirrel

Thanks for the tip but everyone I know says 'giff' and if I start saying 'jiff' they won't know what I'm talking about.
JPEG is definitely jaypeg though.
Never heard of most of the others, forgive my ignorance. I'm from the days when computers were stupid.

.mp3 is "imm pea three".
.doc is "dock", I believe.
.txt is "text", as I understand it.
