Somewhere my English professors are screaming.

"Segueway" for "segue" seems to be a fairly common error. It's the only word I can think of where a final "gue" is pronounced /gwei/. In nearly every other case it's pronounced /g/, as in dialogue or league, but in rare cases it's pronounced /gju/, as in ague. It's no surprise people get an oddity like segue wrong, but you'd expect people to check first before investing in a name and logo.

The revolutionary space-age scooter called Segway may have contributed to the confusion.

This is a genuine revelation! I am flabbergasted to know this. Thank you
