choice: $50 or $500 per user

We all saw it coming.

"Google Apps Premier Edition is available for $50 per user account per year, and includes phone support, additional storage, and a new set of administration and business integration capabilities." (source)

And what does your $50 buy you?

10 gigabytes of storage per user
APIs for business integration (e.g. data migration, user provisioning, single sign-on, and mail gateways)
99.9 % uptime
24x7 support for critical issues
Gmail for mobile devices on BlackBerry.

Surprisingly, Google is making advertising "optional" for these business accounts.

Release the hounds.
