Since “modem” is short for “modulator-demodulator,” clearly it should be pronounced “maw-deem”
The GNU Image Manipulation Program is pronounced "imp" because the "g" in "gnu" is supposed to be silent and the "G" in "GNU" doesn't stand for anything other than itself. I feel that the name ceases to be problematic as long as you remember to pronounce it this way.
