Well, this is all over the blogs and news at the moment - my link goes to the BBC version of the story. No great surprise here really; Google is going to start selling a premium version of their email, calendar, word processing and messaging package. It'll cost £27 or 40€ or $50 which includes more storage, phone help and 99.9% uptime (which is actually downtime of about 9 hours per year if you don't want to work it out yourself) and it'll be advertisement free.</p> <p>Google is of course saying that it's not an attack on Microsoft.</p> Google specific philipbradley
