Those are about Ryan Fugger's Ripple, not the new Ripple. The new Ripple does include the peer-to-peer credit of the original Ripple. But there are major differences. For example, the new Ripple is positioned initially as a payment system competing with things like PayPal and checks.

snippet of email from Ryan Fugger Sep last year (2012) seems relevant

.. group would like to take over the Ripple project and call their system "Ripple". They have offered me xx for this, which would give them ownership of all Ripple software I've written...[and] ripplepay.com domains... I could continue my work independently, but I would need to give it a different name.
