yes App is my biggest irritation.

I go out of my way to say Application each time, just to watch other people twitch.

Except according to the guy who invented GIF, JIFF is the correct way to say it.

Or you could protest both forms and pronounce it like Jyfe (J-eye-ff?)

App doesn't bother me, mobo doesn't bother me...calling the whole computer the CPU? eh... Doesn't really bother me but I don't know many people who do that...

Every annoyance in this topic is acceptable use of language.

edit:
Except CPU. I hear that a lot in retail, and I intentionally call it a tower after they say it.

I don't like the term "rig"

But "app" is definitely the worst, thanks Steve!
