All The Good Ones Were Taken

An article from long ago mocked the merger of Sperry and Univac saying "All the good names were taken" when the two companies decided on "Unisys".

So, too, when an entrepreneur chose "TrueTwit" for their Twitter follower service which purports to decide whether a new follower is a human or a (ro)bot.


Wasn't there snickering around the conference-room table when Apple chose iPad?

Wouldn't an entity, deciding to create a new product, check to see what the true nature of the word "twit" is?

Therefore, wouldn't it be more apropos to call their product "TwitBuster" or some such?
