Jif, the popular peanut butter company, has finally weighed in on the debate about how to pronounce GIF.
Jif’s tweet came less than a day after the creator of the Graphics Interchange Format (ie GIF) revealed that GIF is actually pronounced “Jif.” This simple declaration set off countless tweets and much self-doubt among the GIF-faithful.
You could argue that the different eras of human history have been defined by a few key innovations. Advancements in agriculture some 10,000 years ago allowed our nomadic ancestors to finally stay put in one place. Alexander Graham Bell and his rivals changed telecommunications forever in the 19th century with the advent of the phone. The Internet’s rise in the ’90s sparked an era of boundless information, and the smartphone in 2007 put that information in the palm of our hands.
All of which is sure be to eclipsed by what could be mankind’s greatest achievement to date. Behold: The 3D pizza printer.
the world is gonna end. there’s nothing more to aspire.
