    @Simon Ayling, its relevant because 365 is in direct competition with Google Apps. And they are very different in terms of privacy stance.
    Also difference likes:
    * Direct support with Microsoft vs Channel only with Google (scary)
    * Labels vs Folders (Just try training your average user labels vs folders)
    * Migration, Hybrid (lets face it most Enterprises are coming from Exchange) vs a Dirsync and IMAP sync : EAS is soooo much better.
    The Gmail man advert was pretty amusing, and I take this as more tongue in cheek – it must be a very difficult thing to articulate in a sober way. (People often criticise MS for being too staid and boring, but when they are fun or humorous then they are crass) They can’t win. I’m glad every day I am not being Scroogled. I stopped using GApps myself, as I was tired of searching for one thing in one location but ads being served up in other places. Or Maps always knowing my whereabouts. Too much info in the hands of 1 company who pass it off to 3rd parties too regularly for my tastes.
