Update: TechCrunk has talked to some Googlers who tell them that Apple originally said it was going live on Friday then moved the day to Monday.    They also harsh on Apple plenty.

Our worst fears realized?  The Google speech recognition app hasn’t hit the iPhone yet after being touted yesterday.  "So what?" you say?  "Give Apple a few days to look at it" you say? 

More bad news.  Google has taken the video down from Youtube.  It is also removed from its Website.   Is this just us being paranoid or has Apple slapped Google for releasing the video prior to release?…or perhaps Google was pressuring Apple to release the update by leaking the video and information to the New York Times?

We really hope this is just a blip…but just in case…Can someone call Eric Schmidt to clear this all up?
