The Vowels Are Taken - Forbes.com

"'Plugged,' with the grammatically correct 'e,' would've cost Castro $10,000. The 'e'-less version ran him $8.99.
Castro isn't the only new tech outfit that doesn't want to pay retail for vowels. A not so brief sampling: Gabbr, Blufr, Plurn, Qoosa, Wufoo, Talkr and Faqqly. That kind of penny-pinching (I'm assuming these names were chosen because they were cheap) may be admirable."
