Dear fellow docos:

The fact that pronunciation seldom darkens the thresholds of our cubes
notwithstanding, I propose that we all make ourselves truly obnoxious in
our respective places of employment by correcting those amazingly
unlettered engineers, marketing-lizards, and management types of all
kinds, by correcting them every time they pronounce "gigabyte" with a
hard "g," as in "good."

It's "jigabyte," dammit, and don't let anyone tell you otherwise! I am
not making this up.
