Froogle Still Shown in SMS Searches

As reported on the "Official Google Blog" Froogle has now been re-branded "Google Product Search". A quick look at shows the domain has been redirected to and all references to Froogle have been removed from this interface, yet Froogle lives on.

When running a search using Google's SMS based search service results for "price" queries still return "Froogle:" with the results.

To see for yourself SMS a query to Google for "price:plasma tv". I'm sure there all kinds of little references to Froogle lying around and it will take some time before all are removed.

For now, the Froogle brand hangs to life one forgotten piece of code at a time.
