Meanwhile, TechCrunch is reporting that the CEO of Slinky.Me, Victor Koch, "issued a public apology (and tagged Google co-founder Sergey Brin) on his Google+ account for the video's sudden exposure.

While the original video was taken down by YouTube, others have popped up, so watch the video while you can before YouTube starts taking them down.

Of course, we'll find out when Google I/O happens in a few months whether this notebook (and the video) is real or not.
