AU - Google scotches Australian 'Groggle' search

An Australian hoping to quench his nation's thirst via the web has agreed to change the name of his alcohol search site after protests from Google. Cameron Collie set up Groggle to allow users to find the best-priced "grog" in nearby stores. Search giant Google complained at his effort to trademark the name, prompting a six-month legal wrangle. Now the name Groggle has been changed to a more conventional title, Drinkle, ahead of its launch in 2011.
