Could Intuit kick start Google Apps for Your Domain?

An article I wrote about Google Coupons questions weather anybody will use the service -- mainly because businesses don't know about it.  I suggested they get local people to "sell" services from Google.

Well, I overlooked the whole "partnering" thing that Google does.  I hadn't thought about it, but the announcement of a partnership with Intuit makes an enormous amount of sense.  Google now has a direct link to all those small businesses they desperately want to be friends with.

A well informed reader of Googling Google points out that Donna Bogatin's prediction that Google will create their own "MS Money" is a bit off now this partnership has been formed.  A better question to ask would be: Will this partnership play a role in the success of Google Apps for Your Domain?  

I can see it right now, "Use QuickBooks 2007 and receive 1 year of licencing for <insert number here> accounts on Google Apps for Your Domain" (until QuickBooks 2008 comes out of course, then upgrading would give you another year).
