    This is really far-fetched...

    Maybe Steve Jobs is trying to convey a subliminal message by saying "Jag-Wire". We know that a Jaguar is a very fast car, and there are connections to Macs and Jaguar's in the newest Austin Powers movie... Well, Maybe "Jag-Wire" is the codename for Fire Wire 2.0 (Yes, I know this is very ridiculous, but bear with me ;) ) Since Jaguar's are fast, "Jag-Wire" must mean something fast that goes through wires...

    I've really gotta lay off the mac bong and the crack pipe :D :cool:

    The reason why he calls Jaguar "Jag-Wire" is because that's the way some us pronounce it. I say "Jag-Wire" just as well as everyone else in my family does. I doubt there's any secret meaning.

    Just ask the British what the proper pronunciation of Jaguar is, or open a dictionary.

    Don't worry, jag•wire is a perfectly acceptable form if you're using the Mircrosoft Dictionary.

    Whether is Jag-wire or Jag-wahr or Jag-u-r, it's fast, like the cat.

    Hey buddy If you think Jag*wire is for M$'ers then think again because Mr. Jobs is the one who says it like that and started it!

    I tested some friends on it the other day at school, wrote done Jaguar on a piece of paper and asked them to read it out for me, a lot of them said Jag-wire which was not very surprising.

    i asked the same question of a friend, and he told me that there is a peice of server software called Jaguar, maybe Uncle Steve was trying to keep clear of a lawsuit, so he pronounced it "jag-wire"

    Not British

    It's an American beast, so you lot can pronounce it how you will. The British pronunciation is "Jag"...

    I think the most far fetched part of this whole thing is the assumption that Jaguars are fast cars. Heavy yes! Fast not really some of them could be marginally fast but not many of them.

    Maybe it means that aliens are taking over the earth, but they are doing it with wires that are jagged, and they have mind controlled steve jobs because they know that mac fanatics will do whatever he says, so he will use SJ as a pawn, who will in turn use us as pawns to take over the world and turn us into slaves. All of this was hinted at throgh the 1, kinda 2, words - Jag-wire.

    :D :D :D :D :D :D

    So that must mean that charging for .Mac and $129 for Jaguar was a test to see how many of us are truly loyal to the Cult of the Almighty God-Like Jobs... :eek: :cool:

    or Apple's just trying to make money :p :D :cool:

    Re: Not British

    They're not native to the States, so we yanks really have no more standing than you brits. :) I have heard brits talking about the cars and saying "jag-you-ar," which seems to be the preferred pronunciation if you're not abbreviating.

    On the subject of the cars, the best car review I ever read was about a Jaguar and read, in part, "CONS: Glovebox is too small to hold parts which fall off during normal operation."
