If you really want to hurt Google, don't completely block access... just filter out all their ads.
This war could be really hard. But in the end, it's the Chinese people who lose, not Google nor the Chinese "government".
Nah... Google loses period. The Chinese people will find a way to the data and sites they want to get to. Google on the other hand will lose out in Revenue. For instance, from the article it says contracts are already being canceled and the android roll out will be canceled. Yup, google loses.
WHY are there NO comments for this yet?!??!
Not very interesting. China says play by our rules or get out. Google needs China more than China needs google. IMOP, this is just one way China get's to squash western competition from entering into China in the search space.
This is clearly another case of too many mad scientists, and not enough hunchbacks.
