Google App Engine Guns for Amazon

Quote, “Google App Engine enables you to build web applications on the same scalable systems that power Google applications.” 

Once you get an invite, they give you 500MB of storage and 10GB of bandwidth a day. And since it’s Google, it’s free. In other words, “Good morning, Amazon… Google is now potentially competing with your web services package.” Too bad Google’s programming language of choice for App Engine is Python, instead of something I want to actually use/learn.
