The title pretty much says it all. Google has been giving free phone service (albeit a bit choppy at times but hey it’s free!) for a while now. This generous offer was set to expire at the end of 2011 but apparently not enough folks are getting it quite yet so Google is now offering it through 2012.
Now, you don’t think that this has anything to do with Google’s attempt to have us all ultimately do everything through, or at least connected to, Google+? Nah. They wouldn’t do that now would they?!
