No, No oooh sound just SUS , not Sue-s like you are saying Zeus

Like Eh..Zeus WAZZAPPP!

Its Ace-us

i don't care if Jerry Shen tells me I'm wrong, He's wrong!

Don't get confused by accents like you do with Caribbean

Americans pronounce Caribbean like people from the Caribbean say it but they have an accent,
Its like you're are putting on a fake accent when you say Caribbean! :D

If you say it the English way in a Jamaican accent that's how you say it apart from the accent.

Call any of the numbers on this page and you can hear the official company pronunciation.

It's a made up word so you say it the way they say it. End of discussion.

no they changed it. officially now pronounced like the letter A then SEUSS

It's always been A-Seuss

but it is derived from Pegasus....I know it doesn't make sense but it's just one of those things.

Like the box for my AM3 mobo...."Rock Solid, Heart Touching" WTF does that mean?

basically it's soft enough to touch your heart, but at the same time rock solid. it's not rocket science, nub.

I know I'm not a regular poster here, so you guys are probably going to dismiss this (thought I have been reading this site and forums for years), but they've been pronouncing their name this way (eh- Soos, or however you want to write it) since at least 1997 or 98. I had a couple of their motherboards go bad back in the day (think Pentium II), and that's how the guy on the customer service line pronounced it.

It's always been A-Seuss

but it is derived from Pegasus....I know it doesn't make sense but it's just one of those things.



So is that like a opposite of a portmanteau? Instead of putting two words together, you split a word in half? It's a cool piece of trivia, regardless.

An Asseuse is somebody who massages asses for a living.
