Does everybody have to copy Apple? UPDATED

...

Well, this time it looks like Google is joining the bandwagon of copying Apple.

UPDATE: Found this page for posterity: http://googlex.foxified.info/


Earlier yesterday, Google released a beta of a new mainpage that featured prettier icons that magnified when you moved over them with the mouse ... much like the dock in OSX.

Google even had a poem to accompany:

"Roses are red. Violets are blue. OS X rocks. Homage to you."

Obviously, Apple made a fuss about it. The page is no longer accessible and has been removed from the Googlelabs page where it appeared.

It was really neat to use and I actually liked it ... maybe Apple can "discuss terms"
