Amazon - what does that have to do with books...or lawnmowers? (Yes, I bought a lawnmower on Amazon)

I guess these are the kinds of things I'm thinking of - real words in inappropriate contexts (Apple, Adobe, Brother, Amazon), for companies that became such big successes that they became synonymous with their fields....rather than entirely made up names...although Google as a made-up name is kinda hard to leave off the list.

Actually, Hulu is a good made-up name too. I waited waaaay too long to visit that place because the name didn't make sense....but now I'm there a couple of times a week....

COW? Why that makes PERFECT sense.


Keep 'em coming....
