Google Apps the Microsoft Killer? 
What business technology does a company generally need? Word Processor? Spread Sheet? E-Mail? Group Calendar? Chat? To-do list? Mobile access? 24/7 phone support? Custom web domain name? 10 gig of storage per user?

Google Apps now supports all this for $50 per year(excellent deal when you compare the MS Office + MS Exchange SW,CAL,HW ...)! There is also a free version where you can add up to 200 users with e-mail accounts and shared calendars,...!

Google Apps has Microsoft importing: Word, Excel, MS Outlook calendar, 'E-mail Migration "coming coon"'. Google is pitching this service to small companies and the "Fortune 500". Microsoft should be worried, Apple should be happy. How soon before we only need a sexy Mac with a browser?

I just registered kevincocco.com through the Google/GoDaddy partnership.

Trust Logos & Skype 

www.Skype.com impressed me with their home page web design. Notice the "No Spyware Adware Malware" button with crown/halo? This Formated text/logo/bug feels like the site is part of some association (BBB, SHTTP, Top10,...)

No certification or association but very creative link to their policy page. "Take a deep breath", use pranayama to feel the security of this brand.
