Mobile “2”

Say it. If you're American, you've just mysteriously dropped an "e" off the end of the word.

I've just seen an IBM advert for Centrino, the "moBILE" technology. What I can't believe is that they let the American voice over stay when they ported it over here. Mobil is, I believe, a long gone petrol station. How on earth do you say that, then?

MoBI? Mob? Mo? Em?

Pah.

Blogger Kevin: Well, where do you get off putting a faint "-r" sound after "idea"?
Exactly.
And Mobil is far from long-gone, at least in the United States. Ever heard of Esson or Exxon?
Try ExxonMobil.

Blogger Fin: Idear is legitimate Bristolian!
