Google needs to step things up for Apps users

This is getting really annoying.

As one of the people who actually pays Google for services, it would be nice to be able to access their latest and greatest technologies.

Snowulf has a pretty good description of the problem on his blog.

If Google Apps gets the vast majority of it's users from very large companies, then I suppose it makes sense for them to enable their more bleeding-edge features last.  I didn't find any statistics on the subject, though this page implies that there are 30 people per GA account, on average.

I'm the only person on my domain, but I have 20 or so email addresses set up.  If they're counting me and others like me in that statistic, most "businesses" their referring to are probably individuals.

Wouldn't 30 mil users / 3mil biz = 10 users per Google Apps domain? Regardless, I would suspect as you suggest, while there are many several hundred user accounts, and a few 10k+ accounts... most are probably 1 - 3 users per domain.

Hey, I'm more of an algorithm than a ...really basic... math guy. :c)

That is the point, though. I suspect (but don't know) that most google app accounts are used for personal domains.
