Features, Office A few weeks ago, we talked about how the rise of computing, a field wherein English is the primary language, is affecting smaller languages, and more specifically, the Dutch language (because that's my native tongue). Of course, it's not just the smaller languages that are affected - English, too, experiences the pressure.

CamelCase is annoying, but what about all caps?

ASUS comes from the last four letters of Pegasus, the winged horse in Greek mythology that represents the inspiration of art and learning. ASUS embodies the strength, creative spirit and purity symbolized by this regal and agile mythical creature, soaring to new heights of quality and innovation with each product it introduces to the market


To add more: TIME, KISS, ASCII

I would prefer osnews

The American Standard Code for Information Interchange (acronym: ASCII; pronounced /ˈæski/, ASS-kee)

I'd agree with "time" and "kiss" though unless somehow being used for a specific acronym. If it's done intentionally for emphasis then someone's parents needs take there keyboard away for a while.
