  1. Yea, that's true. Some thing really weird happens. Infact I guess all the Vowels alphabets are skipped by some one... I'm also a programmer, so thinking might be they some body mistakenly block the Vowels...

  2. It was an April fool...refer to the post on gmail blog http://gmailblog.blogspot.com/2010/04/todays-vowel-outage.html
