Google within the office? The end of SharePoint Search?

Official Google Blog: 9,000 and counting

What implications would this have on SharePoint Search? One of the strong selling features of SharePoint IMHO is the indexing of all data within the company. We call it the "internal google". Having the actual Google indexing and search technology available within the company is surely a challenge to any search and indexing enterprise software.

What would you choose if you had a choice betweenbetween SharePoint Search and Google Search? Google within the office, that has quite a nice ring to it... And the price?
