Google getting into unversities

I suppose it had to come. We all know that students rarely (ever?) use their mmu email accounts – either they don’t look cool enough, they often ‘break down’, or they already have a healthy address-laden email account with yahoo before they get here. Now some universities are doing away with university-based accounts altogether and outsourcing email to Google. It’s cheaper, more efficient, and students get to take their accounts with them when they graduate. And that creates a healthy alumni contacts list for the institution.
So today GMail and tomorrow … lectures on Google Video??
