Dave Girouard, who is in charge of Google's Enterprise group has announced on his Twitter account that Google is working on bringing every service it has to the Google Account--except for the ones that went extinct.
(Dave Girouard) We're working to give you access to every damn Google service with a Google Apps account - yep every damn one of them. Um, maybe not Lively.While I am not sure by everything he means everything (as I doubt Google would add YouTube to the Google Apps arena), Orkut would be a nice addition for small businesses located in Brazil and India--not to mention bloggers as well (as it would compliment Google's Blog*Spot service).
If this rumor does have some truth to it, hopefully Google will consider giving Orkut admins the ability to change the color schemes, as not everyone is a fan of baby blue (as one only has to visit the Google Internet Bus forum to see what I mean).
