In other Google news, Google App Engine team announced that the "SSL for Custom Domains" is entering into testing.
"We'll be offering two types of SSL service, Server Name Indication (SNI) and Virtual IP (VIP). SNI will be significantly less expensive than VIP when this service is launched, however unlike VIP it does not work in all browsers that support SSL. VIP is a premium service with a dedicated IP and full browser support. Both VIP and SNI support wildcard certificates and certificates with alternate names," the App Engine Team revealed.
