seems more like viral marketing effect felt on twitter...
It was google's idea to do business in China not the other way round...so your logic fails...
google loses a big share of it's users When the world has more contentious issue like nuke by China I don't think google pulling out would have enough repercussion.We don't hear other companies pulling out.
It is interesting to note the similarity of the points here with that of MIT students boston subway hacking...the misinterpretation of facts or the intentions by those in authorities.
I totally agree with you...The recent cases of apple throwing it's weight around on manufacturers not complying with their policies of not hiring underage workers.It is the company that is responsible not the place where it is. Every country does some kind of censorship,in case of China,they are just doing it for they don't want any more bloodshed.Will not uncensoring of Tiananmen square bring unrest to China and hence the bloodshed.
This seems to me more like a rerun of MPAA lobbying US for piratebay...except in this case it is google lobbying US for the China censorship.Why are they making such a fuss now...why dint they make it long back...google's "no evil" is a joke.
Lets suppose it's true about the origin of the attacks...but can we say the US government is also totally without it's guilt???
