Google X

From Wikipedia the free encyclopedia, by MultiMedia


Google X was a project released by Google Labs on March 15, 2005 and rescinded a day later. It consisted of the traditional Google search bar, but it was made to look like the Dock user interface feature of Apple's Mac OS X operating system.

The rumor is that it was pulled because of a threatened lawsuit by Apple. Google has not released any official statement as to why the project was shut down. Apple has a patent for the graphical design which means they may well be able to successfully sue those who copy the look and feel of their interface. Since Google X has been taken down, a little over 50 mirrors are available. Some of them are exact copies, and some are edited ones.

At the bottom of the page one could read the following: "Roses are red. Violets are blue. OS X rocks. Homage to you."
