Google Cost Savings

Interesting move from Google to demonstrate cost savings to businesses of using their online free services over traditional ms office and IT support staff. They have created a specific cost calculator to show the commercial argument. When you look at the numbers it is a very compelling case.

It is something we have toyed with as a small business but then what happens when Gmail goes down or confidential information in google docs accidentally gets sent to all your gmail contacts as has happened in the past?

I'm sure it will happen and quickly that this becomes the norm. The rise of the browser and the decline of the operating system is a well troden path and its interesting to see how a company like Google tackles this. I'm sure this is the first of many tactics.
