The Google Phonetic Alphabet

The Military phonetic alphabet is that thing you hear on TV when a cop or army guy is trying to spell out a word, with words. For example, "Uniform - Xray - Alpha - Romeo - Tango - Sierra" would spell UXarts.

Earlier today, I noticed that if you type in a single letter into Google, it provides you with what is probably the most searched on term starting with that letter. Taking that as a lead, I put together the Google Phonetic Alphabet. The next time you have to spell out your website or email address to someone, try using it. You sound like an uber-geek. "USPS - XM - Amazon - Realtor.com - Target - Southwest Airlines" signing out, over.
