Keynote is an awesome product.
Creating mantras rather not. Sounds like some people have a lot of spare time.

As is "gift"? I always wondered why it was spelt with a G and not a J. ??
In Romance language derived words letter G followed by a vowel is pronounced as a J.

In Germanic derived words it becomes a hard G.

The founder of GIF said it should be said with a soft G but I say gif with hard g or soft g interchangeably because nobody gives af.

Do people say NAYTO or NATO? I also say both interchangably because as an internationally renowned super spy I have to change my accent every 11 minutes.

James Bond and Jason Bourne still didn’t learn this trick.

Well... looks like Apple's official stance on 'Gif' is pronouncing it with a hard G and not a J.
