You say Sexy, I say …:

Many years ago Apple introduced a new standard for disk drive interfaces. In the long run this standard has done well, although it had a rocky beginning and was plagued by manufacturer incompatibilities. Apple had the inspiration to call this the “Small Computer System Interface, acronym SCSI, which they pronounced “Sexy.” Apple would have loved to world to embrace its sexy interface! But while some people say “tomahto”, it seems that EVERYONE pronounces SCSI like this: “Scuzzy”. Poor Apple.
