IceRocket name to be flushed down the pipe of history

Mark Cuban has announced that up and coming blog search engine Ice Rocket is to get a new name: BlogScour.com

We are not sure whether the search engine will scrub up a bit better after the change of name but I’ve got no doubt that the new look for the site will be fresh and hygenically clean for all new visitors, with bacteria free search results for all.

Update: apparently IceRocket is chaning name and Mark Cuban is launching BlogScour as a new stand alone product, and CNet got it wrong. Which is all a bit odd when you consider the BlogScour.com domain brings up the IceRocket homepage. Thanks to Crispian for the tip.

    Duncan, Blake from IceRocket says they aren’t changing names but instead starting a whole new project with blogscour.com.

    Ridiculous name if memorable for that very reason.
