Funny, I ALWAYS said "ey soos" from day one. It sounded strange any other way.

Cool!!

Now I can go back to my local computer shop and make fun of the guys there when they say Ah-soos.

let that be a lesson to everyone trying to pick a name for a company. If the village idiot can't pronounce it correctly, then pick another name. I don't hear anybody mispronouncing Apple, microsoft, honda, toyota, Dell, etc.

For the record, I own way too much stuff made by Aysoos.

I guess I should learn how to pronounce it correctly since I own four of their motherboards and one of their monitors. Not to mention I'm saving my nickels for a Transformer TF300 10.1" tablet.

Whoa, in the second video, they are definitely singing A-sis in the middle instead of A-sus. Oops.

I always called it "Ey-soos" anyhow, but because these ads were so poorly done I've resolved to calling it anything but.

OK, first...that's NOT ACTUALLY BRUCE LEE.

Second, it's really pretty stupid and not funny at all.

"ey soos"? Sounds Spanish to me :)

I thought the name was based off "Pegasus", so I always say it "eh-suh-ss".

Indeed, I will never say it how they want it to be said -NOW- because I fondly remember when it was "ACE-us" or "A-sus" if you prefer...

It reminds me of a silly ad campaign a while back where some idiots (presumably with the forestry service in some way) were trying to reinvent "Smokey The Bear" as "Smokey Bear", and their angle was that ONLY "Smokey Bear" was to be an acceptable name for him... Even producing insulting commercials suggesting anyone calling him by his original name was basically stupid.

To which I and many many others pointed out dozens of books, toys, even sing-a-long records and so forth products from the earliest days of Smokey THE Bear, that clearly called him as such... Needless to say that dumb ad campaign went quietly into the night when people of my generation smiled politely at their demands, and merely replied "NO".

That is what it was originally, before Acer came into being. I used to work for Asus, we had a whole training on this :)

LOL, as good as any...
at HP, I was once once announced by a receptionist as " the guy from Hewlett Packing Company is here".

Me, I have always said "A-sis" to myself. Like THAT was a word that came up in conversation all the time...
