How do you pronounce it?
« on: 23 Jan 2017, 10:12 pm »
My kids instinctively said "Eye Fi" when they saw the name.

Oddly, I have always pronounced it as the 3 individual letters - I. F. I.

Surely there is a "right" way!  :lol:

Eye fi (like Fidelity ) sounds right to my ears. That's how my 10 year old would pronounce it.

 Better than iffy  :o

Official answer: eye fi

This requires a London/Brit/Cockney accent and it is prounounced just like 'Hifi' with the letter 'H' swallowed. thus 'iFi'

I 'ope this answers your question Governa.  :wink:
