I bet you a looney that having Google host everything is significantly cheaper than running / supporting your own exchange / app server?
Makes one how much the NSA pays Google make sure their services are attractive to foreign entities like universities, corporations etc...
I wonder how much the NSA 'contributed' towards Microsoft's purchase of Skype. Since Microsoft bought Skype, the service has been re-architected from peer-to-peer to more client-server, with the servers located in the US, and the encryption keys held by Microsoft. Convenient, n'est pas?
