irows - an update

Techcrunch have a report confirming that irows has been "acquired" by Google and is to close.

I got my prediction completely wrong - The service is no longer accepting new accounts and will shut down completely at the end of this year. The company is providing instructions for its users to move their data to Google Documents.

So, the customer bears the effort & cost of migrating, having to accept what's on offer with Google spreadsheets. Meantime, Google neutralises a competitor and the irows founders presumbly get rich via some sort of payout - doubt that the offer of a job is sufficient to capitulate.
