Web 2.0 news: Google ditches Froogle, while mobile VoIP war turns nasty

google-ps.jpgWhaddya mean, what’s Froogle? Well, maybe that lack of recognition is one of the reasons why Google has chosen to rename its shopping price comparison service. It’ll now be known as simply Google Product Search. Froogle always sounded like a dance to me…

Elsewhere in the Web 2.0 world, ICQ claims its new ICQ 6.0 app “reinvents instant messaging”, and mobile VoIP firm Truphone is threatening to report the mobile operators to Ofcom if they continue disabling VoIP features on handsets like Nokia’s N95.
