Google Apps from Free to Paid - No more free lunch

Google's plan to convert its Free Google App's service into paid model is surprising. Developers who are using Google Apps. more than 500 MB are falls into Google's Apps Pricing Plan.

Tariff as follows

* $0.10 - $0.12 per CPU core-hour
* $0.15 - $0.18 per GB-month of storage
* $0.11 - $0.13 per GB outgoing bandwidth
* $0.09 - $0.11 per GB incoming bandwidth

After reading this news, few questions immediately hit my mind

Google is providing Gmail (6 GB free and going on and on....) and other products for free of cost ( Kind of free), then why they are converting Google Apps into paid segment? hmmm...

This is also other way of track the User activity and there domain.
