So have Orange bought out Wanadoo?

Anyone hear this in the news.

The search is as bad as the PPC spam search sites, its nice to see that big companies have equally low morals when it comes to filling their SERPs with paid listings.

Freeserve became Wanadoo in 2004.
Wanadoo was part of France Telecom.
Orange is still part of France Telecom.

I guess it was just a branding exercise - wanadoo appears to be re-launched as Orange internet ...

... on a sidenote orange's mobile phone ad has been dumped. Cost them almost $20 Million and it's been critised since launched - it's good to have that kind of money to throw around.
