Everyone else knows I guess but not me. Transmitter mast planning got a mention again this morning. For 5G. This laptop works on 3G. My 'breakdown' phone in the car is 2 or 3G. Then theres just been the G7 and my bathroom light takes G9 bulbs, but what's a G?

Sometimes, as in mobile phones, it does represent a set of distinct and incompatible standards. But more often it is pure marketing. I will not say which category is the better fit for Steve's example.

Going back to the OP. The G in lamps seems to refer to bi pin lamps or there bases, most of which are on some ISO standard. See here

"G" (or "Gee") is a mild expletive used to circumvent the biblical commandment about not taking the name of God in vain. Instead of saying "God", the speaker only says the first letter of God's name. This keeps the speaker from going to Hell because God is totally clueless.

The true definition of G is that it's a note that, in a session, will be presented to you at least fifty cents either way if you ask a fiddle player for it.

G is a thing which rhymes with B, C, D, and E.

This is often considered proof that whoever named the letters of the alphabet never tried to tell fellow musicians in a noisy room what key a song was going to be played in.

”4th string on a G-tar”

Errrrrrmmmmm......Tattie, the 4th string on a guitar is ‘D’, ‘G’ is the third string. Guitar strings are listed alphabetically from the thickest to the thinnest - EADGBe - but they are numbered the reverse, from the thinnest - high ‘e’ - to the thickest - low ‘E’.
