    Wow a big increase. They are probably counting on that only a minority will use that much.

    I guess it has something to do with Microsoft Launching Office 365 today

    wouldn't have thought so. Google Apps is miles ahead of Office 365

    you can get 26GB for MSFT, this is why I suspect Google have increased to match/competitive.

    The gmail quota is only for email. Google Docs storage is unlimited! You also get extra google space for other docs and pictures that don't count towards your email quota.
    of course, you can always pay to upgrade to a 1TB picasa account if you really need.

    Agreed

    Expect Office 365 is basically a cloud exchange server.

    Office365 is a heck of a lot more than a cloud exchange server ... yes, you might have to pay for some stuff, but it is worth it.
    Having been a GApps user for a long time and having had to go back to running a system on it, the beta for Office365 was easier to work with, had more functionality for shared working within a business / department management ... but I know that others are looking for something different and GApps does it for them.

    But Office365 is a lot more than cloud exchange
