Confirmed. Download has been removed. Not sure if the website is still up. If you search the web, you'll find a download link somewhere. With touch/multi-touch/tablets replacing computers in the next 10 years (not completely of course), this is one step closer to going "paperless". How many times have you had to print something to compare documents or to read something because hard copy is so much more quicker/easier to read then on your computer monitor. Without having to print, we save paper, save space, time, ink, money, power, and so on....everything in moderation of course. Google would be silly not to use the software in some way (not to say that they shouldn't release the software for open source of course =) ).

I tried it on two separate occassions and had to dump it both times. This thing is nothing but a toy- There's no real practical application... If someone's hurting for screen real estate there are much better solutions.

Google does not seems to be interested in it, I hope they will release it open source like other products of the company they bought. I downloaded just before they removed the links and i really like it.
