Google rips off HuddleChat

Is Google App Engine HuddleChat a Campfire Rip-Off? [SearchEngineWatch]

So it would seem either Salar Kamangar, Vice President, Product Management had no clue HuddleChat was an “Attack of the Clones” app or he gave the greenlight for a product launch knowing many in the developer community would likely view Google App Engine as a Xerox machine for copycat product developers.

That’s horrible. I went to HuddleChat and it is truly a ripoff. The interface is the same, the functionality is much the same, even the Sound control is the same. Take a look at HuddleChat and then go look at 37signals Campfire.
