Just out of curiosity, is there anyone out there that didn't
already know this?

I had mixed feelings about the article. I've know people who would sooner trust Google than their employer's email, or that of their ISP. And would sooner trust Google applications over applications offerred by their employer.

We could see some tug and pull between users and IT departments who don't really trust one another. A user may feel he would get better value from a 3rd party service provider.

Actually, I've even heard IT administrators complain about how complicated and convoluted technology has become, and consider outsourcing their own departments.

One question for me would be how easily I as an end-user, can get to my data, in the event I wanted to switch providers, or take it back in-house.
