Mashable refers to an article on Center
has been changed by now (it still has an error in the last paragraph
about ID Selector being launched by OpenID). Center Networks also had an
article <http://www.centernetworks.com/openid-launches-id-selector> on ID
Selector which made the claim.

I haven't seen similar claims anywhere else so far, though, so I also don't
think it is intentional by JanRain.
