"A Seuss"?? As in "A Seuss lives up that hill; I think he's a doctor."

Dang, I always pronounced it "Ay-sis", like "hey, sis".

This has thrown my world off-balance. Mind.Blown.

I always thought it was Ay sis as well. I'm still going to pronounce it like that because I'm a rebel.

... and a friend of mine pronounces it "Ay-Seuss", all obtuse-like. Maybe Asus can continue these naming jokes and increase brand awareness.
