All of this integration came from their user community via their "Idea Exchange". Looks like the concept works. Good stuff.

So why can't bring themselves to integrate with Notes 8 until the summer of 2009? Is it a religious thing? That, I could understand.

Andy if Notes 8 were a cloud application I bet ya they could do it very quickly. In order to integrate Notes 8 they have to code for Windoze and not in their multi-tenant platform built on Java and Oracle. Ping me offline so we can catch up on the Notes 8 / saga.

I like how the "official google blog" is using Youtube to host the video describing the service...

Marc, it's their company after all. :-)

Andy, it probably makes more sense to go after Google Apps first. Notes 8 is not really deployed anywhere yet and Google Apps customers have already adopted the SaaS model.

Yes, it is their company, but "Google Video" is the brand with the stronger connection to the company name :-)

Just turn it on

This is what I see in my Salesforce Admin console.

Looks pretty simple.
