I am wondering why Google keep all its application in beta stage? How many people have today a gmail account, how many people have today a blogger account... A lot... What happen if you ask money, even a little, for this services? People will pay because they have too much things on their blog and too much mail in Gmail (2,7Go)... Don't forget that Microsoft permit you to use its beta version of Office, but after you have to pay to use it... I don't know what is in the mind of Eric Shmidt but if someone a bit more greedy come at the head of google he could make huge profit... So be careful with all this new applications of the Web 2.0, and keep copy on your computer of your mails and posts.
