Google’s new beta Google X Mac OS-X-themed page was taken off air only about a day after appearing. Given how aggressive Apple (and Google) have been at pursuing imitators, maybe they thought better of copying the OS-X Dock.
Who knows, maybe Google were scared of Apple, who certainly don’t hesitate to call in the lawyers when they think they’ve been wronged.
Scoble’s found some mirrors so you can see Google X for yourself.
It’s a nice little effect, close to the OS X dock effect but not quite.
