  4. Depends on how you are pronouncing AAA. If you are saying Ay-Ay-Ay then yes, an Ay Ay Ay member, but if you are pronouncing it “triple A” like most tend to do with the AAA company, then a triple A is correct. There are many interpretations of this rule, so perhaps we should stick to reading the article for the android information rather than for grammar practice.
