That link just gives me a search listing for 'Hohm' was there a particular entry that caught your eye?

 I'm guessing it may be the reference to it still being a 'Beta'.

Hi Mike,

it was Google twitter analysis for Hohm over time - barely anything

I read during the week that Hohm was only ever a strategic product so
that Google didn't have the field to itself, which is why it was
dropped so quickly after Powermeter. I certainly didn't have any
success in talking to the Microsoft Developer Evangelists over here
about it

Shame, because they had a far better user interface than Google, had
more things thought through (eg what to do if you don't have a smart
meter, other forms of energy than electricity)
