Froogle Gets a Name Change

I have used Froogle many times over the years, often making purchases based upon the search results. It is not a perfect product, but it gets the job done.

The cutest thing about the service has always been the name, a pun which merges the words Google and frugal. But that cuteness has now been taken away: to avoid confusion about what the product actually does, Froogle has been renamed Google Product Search.

The new name is certainly not as fun, but I guess it is more accurate. And maybe now, I can relearn the proper way to spell frugal.
