The article _is_ confusing.  And it never says "Jabber, Inc." anywhere.

  "Jabber [...] said it has signed up more than 4 million licensed users."
  "In March, Jabber secured a $7.2m (£4.6m) investment from Intel Capital..."

Huh??

As I said, it is easy for one of us to figure out what this article really 
means, but I can assure you the uninformed reader will be lost.

I'm not suggesting a name change.  I'm not even suggesting any solution.  I'm 
just pointing out that this article is a problem.  Do you find nothing wrong 
with it?
