    No. Actually, it stands for "Joint Picture Experts Group".
    Similarly, MPEG stands for "Motion Picture Experts Group".

    ok, some more acronyms:

    USB: Universal Serial Bus (or Useless Silly B!tch)
    ISA: Industrial Standards Adapter
    VLB: Vesa Local Bus
    STFU: Shut the f*ck up
