2012 - Would you buy Google Apps from Bruce Willis to keep up with Rackspace

We continue our series about how Microsoft doesn't like Google. At this time - the remake of the old TV series Moonlighting with Bruce Willis and Cybill Shepherd, starring Google as Bruce Willis. It's not just funny movie about Google Apps, but also a good opportunity to practice your English (if you need). And we hope that Google will fire back with its own quirky advert.

2010 - Google Apps to add blogs, RSS and galleries to defeate Rackspace

Google Apps
As you know, Google Apps contains only those applications that are useful for collaboration. And because of this, Google Apps users have a problem with accessing other Google services - they constantly need to switch between accounts. Especially it looks stupid if company is using Blogger for corporate blog, YouTube for corporate video-channel, running ad campaigns in Adwords, hosting corporate galleries in Picasa, or its employees are using Google Reader as an enterprise RSS client. According to the post in the Google Enterprise Blog, this summer most Google services will become available in Google Apps. It remains only to solve the issue with IT administrators that want to control and monitor these new services.
