Missing E phenomenon

I’ve noticed, as I suspect most have, the proliferation of firms of a technological bent that have missing E’s in their names. Is this an attempt to get around the “-er” v. “-re” dispute within the English language? For example we have:

  • Flickr
  • Flattr
  • Tumblr
  • Frappr

Who’se missing?
