Looks like they've designed the Google Apps home page so that it returns 404s too:
Redirects >

With Google Apps, you can get...

Applications including Gmail, Google Talk, Google Calendar and Google Docs. Learn more.

Links to: (Dead link)

[Edit: they've just updated the link to:]

Perhaps they're making Google Sites live too...?

Hmm, isn't Google Mail already doing spam filtering and virus checks for free?

i assume this is better. but why do they have to charge for it instead of just making their existing stuff better and keep it free?

In the title field 'Securitiy Power' should be 'Security Power'

Businesses will look at it and say, it costs money – it must be good! Its the age old belief of you get what you pay for.

I'm starting to worry about Google's future. As one of the early Yahoo users I'm getting a feeling of dejavu all over again.

Free services, paid services, individual services, group services. I have an original Gmail id and affiliations with several organizations using Google Aps and already I can't keep it all straight.

I download the Google Firefox toolbar and try and get it to check one of my Aps for Domain IDs and find IT CAN'T BE DONE!

In the process I accidentally create yet another GMail ID, and get error messages that point to non-existent help files.

Under Aps it constantly tells me I need to merge my Docs files with some other (un-named) account, and when I tell it to go do that it comes back and tells me it can't!

I really get the feeling that there are parts of Google for which the old saying "no ones minding the store" is very applicable.

It will take a year for Microsoft to finalize it's takeover of Yahoo and one of the biggest problems they will have to resolve is confusion over multiple "namespaces". But I have a feeling they WILL resolve it. That's about how long Google has to clean up its act in this area. As much as I'd like to, I can't in good conscience recommend Google Aps for small businesses right now. There are just too many pot-holes to fall into unless the company has a dedicated help-desk to help them out. The muddle gets worse with each added layer of services, and no end in sight.

When you try and add this to an existing Apps domain, it comes back and says you are an existing customer and this service is only open to new customers???
