Google Apps for Business No Longer Free

Betanews is reporting that there’s no longer a Free tier for Google Apps for Business:

Google has announced that one of its cloud-based services, Apps for Business, will no longer offer a free tier. The Mountain View, Calif.-based search leader now asks customers to pay a yearly fee for the service, which includes Google’s popular Gmail, Drive, Docs, and Calendar specially designed for private enterprise deployment.

Wonder if this is part of a play to get more money, or that they have enough from paying customers that they don’t need the extra support hassles from having free clients.
