Which Google Account do you have... I Have 2 with the same email

Did you know that google has 2 kinds of accounts?

What's a Google Account?
A Google Account is a unified sign-in system that gives you access to a variety of free Google consumer products, including Google Groups, Google Shopping List, Picasa, Web History, iGoogle, and more. You can also sign in to AdWords, AdSense, and Google Checkout. If you've used any of these products before, you already have a Google Account.

So i have one of these.... with my main email address not a gmail...  then years later i moved my main email (on my own domain)

What is Google Apps?
Google Apps is a suite of Google applications that brings together essential services to help your business. This is a hosted service that lets businesses, schools, and institutions use a variety of Google products - including Email, Google Docs, Google Calendar, and Google Talk - on a unique domain (e.g. www.yourcompany.com).

so what is the big issues... will since both my google App and my google account have the same email it is hard to know which account i'm using... also there is no way to share contracts...

Now what we have google voice and google wave... they are attached to my google account but since my email is in my google apps i can't fully use these services and that is stopping me from doing a lot more ...

Now i hear that google is working to bridge both accounts... let us all hope this is the final step to enable google apps users to use the full power of google...
