If by apk you mean the file extension for Android apps, then you are wrong as you are with some others. Apk is android package kit.

Also, Wi-Fi didn't originate as an acronym.

When will this stop circulating? This is the second time I've seen it hit front page, and at least 7 of those acronyms are not acronyms at all.

It's educative, with the correct ones, but very misleading with the others.

This is so wrong. Lazy mods and ignorant Ops keep dishing out half baked information on nairaland most of the time.
Dell was named after the founder and the word virus was borrowed, Google and Yahoo also wrong.
