City of L.A. joins list of largest U.S. companies to embrace Google Apps

In a move that is sure to spur countless ramblings, clown faces, and repetitive though baseless comments from The Balms himself, the L.A. City Council voted an astonishing 12 - 0 on a $7.25 million contract to move all 30,000 of the cities’ employees over to Gmail and other Google related apps. Not a small move by any stretch. In fact, after the move is complete, the city of L.A. will be one of the largest municipal users of Google apps. Pretty cool huh? In an effort to prevent mass chaos, the city isn’t going all in from the get go. Initially a small test group of city employees will put the new system through it’s paces to ensure it can stand up to rigorous demand before all 30,000 are cut loose. A wise move I say. I guess that added corporate acknowledgement Google was looking for is finally starting to materialize eh? Now the only question is if they’ll really save all $7.25 million of those dollars…
