Google is decommissioning old products, but for some reason it seems almost all of these retirements relate to Microsoft. Google Apps, for instance, is bailing on support of older versions of IE.
And more recently Google decided to stop supporting ActiveSync for Exchange (could the push to make all things Gmail have anything to do with it?).
Google Sync, which keeps Gmail, Google Contacts and Calendar all up to date, relies in part on ActiveSync. This is a benefit to Microsoft users, especially mobile folks, and their ability to keep Google and Microsoft-based item in line.
Google recently began charging for Google Apps for Business. Those customers will be weaned off ActiveSync where the change for free users will be more abrupt.
