It's like trying to name a company or product these days, all the short and non-awful names and web addresses are taken, even made-up names that only approximate their English original! The web has made it paradoxically easier to propagate neologisms while simultaneously more difficult to claim them.

I would like to see what Retro can do with this one too. 'Technilogy' is indeed great. Best of all, no one has used it intentionally yet, according to first page google results.
