Google Pony Express: Part of the Big, Digital Cash Grab

The project ReCode stumbled on Google Pony Express this week. According to the site and a raft of secret documents they perused and then published, Google is working on an entire Gmail-driven bill payment system. So instead of visiting two dozen sites to pay e-bills, the user just checks their Gmail. Gmail could organize all your bill payments and receipts of payments received into folders. One would hope that Google would go the extra mile and tie Pony Express to Google Docs Spreadsheet so you can see an itemized history of payments, but they may not go that far out of the gate.
