Where Did Google X Go?

Earlier today Danny blogged about the new Google X interface from Google Labs. Now, a day after launching the service, it’s already offline. Philipp and News.com report that Google X was taken down sometime this afternoon. Why? Google isn’t saying. Earlier, Danny wrote, “Google X comes from apparently similar functionality in the MacOS system.” Hmm, perhaps Apple had a few issues with the “look” and “feel” of the service and Google decided to simply kill their “homage” to OS X. According to the News.com article, both Google and Apple were unavailable for comment. As of 9pm EST, the Google X remains unreachable.
