While we're on the subject of acronyms: Does anyone else hate pointless
capitalisation of words that are not acronyms?

I remember trying in vain to find out what EPOC expanded into, convinced it
must stand for Extraordinary Psion Operated Computing, or something like
that. Nope, it's just a word with all capitals, for no good reason other
than that someone wanted it to SHOUT off the page. Annoying.
