Pretty big move. I'm pleased.
I give Google till the end of the week before they get banned from China. However kudos to Google for putting their 'necks' on the line.
Google to stop censoring in China
This could lead to some interesting backlashes from China.
I am surprised they actually took charge and left. That is big
I was reading "banned" as "remove all of your businesses from China", not banning access to the uncensored content. I believe the latter was expected from everyone.
Does seem that China acted quickly. On a side note have people in China not heard of VPN's?
It's gonna be interesting how this one pans out. All we can do is sit tight and watch.
This bit was interesing from the NY Times article:
Does Apple use Google as the default engine on the Chinese iPhone and if so, do you think Apple will change it on a future update for Chinese users?
One would say probably yes, so I guess they are going to have to change.
China dont get it
Google is positioning to be more than just a search engine. So i am not sure why people keep comparing it to Baidu or others alike. With the future of cloud computing, more personal stuff will be up on the internet. Google leaving China is a HUGE positive for the future of the company. In SHORT, Bank with google is like banking with a Swiss Bank, Bank with another, well all your private information will be turned over to the government when required or whoever is going to pay. Google is tomorrows "Private Banking", or at least thats the image they are sending to the world. The chinese dont get it and keep threatening that they have more than 300mn internet users, thats really stupid. Who cares. You can have 300mn internet users but if they are not going to transact, its USELESS. The same reason why Chinese in China will buy nestle milk if they can afford it rather then local tainted milk, same reason why they bring money to swiss accounts if they have,
