Even though I’ve not posted anykind of news about anything on this blog for ages, I felt this news was so big that I just had to share it :)
This move means the Chinese government may ban Google’s services entirely. Google seems to expect as much as they’ve set up a website showing which Google services are currently being blocked by the Chinese Government and updating it accordingly. They are also considering withdrawing from the Chinese market entirely if matters get that far.
I guess sceptics will say that Google never had that big a market share in China anyway, but AFAIK neither does Yahoo or Microsoft and we don’t see them taking such risks. So I just want to say - way to go Google! *grin*
