Google De-Emphasizing Apps?

Wall Street Journal reporter Clint Boulton blogs that Google is de-emphasizing its efforts in online productivity tools that compete with Microsoft.

They seem to be focusing on their core business of search and increasing the social networking market share of Google+.

The shift in focus is apparent in recent changes of leadership in the Google Apps division and in the black hole in leadership within the division since the departure of long-time vice president of Apps, Dave Girouard.  Girouard isn't the only departure, either.  Several other key employees have left or been reassigned recently.

Do you use Google Apps?  Are you worried about the future of your service and considering alternatives?
