Google Wins Email Contract With City Of Los Angeles

City employees have had it with their rickety old email system, and are going Google. From the LA Times:

The Los Angeles City Council voted unanimously today to outsource its e-mail system to Google Inc., making it the largest city in the nation to make the move and handing the Web search giant a major victory in its quest to become a software provider to the world’s cities and businesses.

After more than two hours of debate, council members voted 12-0 to approve the $7.25-million contract that would move all 30,000 city employees to Google’s so-called cloud over the coming year.
