STORY REMOVED: BC-US-Google-Wi-Fi-Acquisition

The Associated Press

Associated Press is withdrawing its story about a purported acquisition of ICOA Inc., a wireless and broadband internet provider, by Google Inc. ICOA says the story is not true, and said a purported news release about the acquisition was a hoax. Google declined to comment, but a person close to Google with knowledge of the situation also said the report was not true. The person declined to be named because she wasn't authorized by Google to speak on the record.
