Bloggers at eBay did a poll asking people how they pronounce tech-related words, and the results are fascinating.
For instance, 55 percent of people pronounce data as ‘day-tuh’, and 42 percent say ‘datt-uh.’ Also, 91 percent pronounce wi-fi as ‘why-fi’ and 8 percent use ‘wiffy.’
And finally, 65 percent of people call a remote control a ‘remote’ and only 5 percent say clicker.
