British people who pronounce things the American way.  Amazon pronounced 'Ama-Zon' and Madagascar with the final syllable rhyming with 'bar'.  The latter definitely changed the usual way people pronounce it after that kids film came out.

how did you pronounce 'data' before/after the android character was introduced in to star trek, and the word became commonplace with regard to phone specs ?

Who?  Star Trek is a bit before my time and I'm not a massive nerd.

I apologise for being obtuse or whooshed, but Amazon surely is pronounced with the stress on the third syllable... and Madagascar does rhyme with bar, no?

Also, people who pronounce words like 'girl' and 'film' as two syllables.

Both less moronic than the Amazzin River. 

(although Madagascar should have a short "a" and not rhyme with bar)

Saying it out loud I've just noticed I pronounce Amazon (website) as 'ama-zin' but when referring to the rainforest I pronounce it 'ama-zon'.

Pronouncing amazon as “amazzin ” is akin to pronouncing Adidas as Adeediss. Monstrous.

They are quite clearly pronounced ‘girrel’ and ‘fillum’, you very northern Englishman.

And amongst those whines and nasally noises are some excellently pronounced words. ^_^
