Bye China. Google has left the search business to Baidu. The next step has the gauntlet being thrown down by Google. China felt it could continue to impose its will on the American company but it was wrong. Queue the Chinese state media to begin slandering the company. Looks like the workers at Google.cn will have to start looking for another job. Maybe this guy was upset about the whole thing.
The state whines “YOU BROKE YOUR PROMISE TO CENSOR THE INTERWEBS”
Google “YOU BROKE YOUR PROMISE TO NOT STEAL FROM US”
State “WE HAD OUR FINGERS CROSSED SO IT DIDN’T COUNT”
I guess it’s up to the people to carry the fight from now on. Google has had enough of the bullshit. Makes you wonder just how many other foreign companies are ready to pull out of the country. China’s protectionist economic strategy continues to be a major deterrent for competition. While it’s a major blow to Internet freedoms for the Chinese population it’s a big statement for international companies operating in China. We’ll have to see what happens next.
