Google defy China

March 23, 2010

Google closed it’s Chinese search last night after refusing to be censored by the Chinese government. Google had been violating Chinese law by redirecting Google search to an off shore website in Hong Kong.
Tension is now escalating between China and the US over the matter.

What does this mean for Chinese Search? Not much, it’s all censored anyway!


Google Ban lifted in China

July 7, 2009

Google are once more allowed to provide search in China. Following extensive talks, agreement has been reached. Google only has a 30% share of the Asian search market, Baidu is the dominant market leader with 64% share.

Will Google now be able to make inroads and increase it’s share? It will be an interesting few months for both parties.

Dwain Chambers world class cheat

July 14, 2008

As a nation we find ourselves in an invideous position, for we are about to potentially make a legal decision that will forever change the moral fabric of our society.

Chambers is by his own admission a cheat….. as if admitting it somehow makes it acceptable. He is going to court for the right to “represent ” Great Britain in China at the Olympics. Personally I do not wish to be represented by a man like Chambers. He took drugs in order to gain an unfair advantage of legitimate sportsmen and yet once caught still lacks the moral code to accept his punishment of a lifetime ban. He should not be competing in athletics anyway, at any level. He should not be allowed to take part in the parents race at his kids school, let alone on the world stage.

If the court this week decide that cheats do actually prosper then an intricate part of Great Britain’s moral fibre will have been irrevocably torn apart. What sort of an example will the law makers be showing the stab happy youth of today by letting this low life go to China? Is it really OK to cheat and con your way to glory and financial gain? Is it OK to dupe the public at every turn? If the court finds in Chambers favour then our only hope is that some deranged yob sets about the shameless waste of good air with a machete, thus saving us the embarrassment of seeing him wearing the union flag on the world stage. 

Dwain, take it like a man. You are cheating scum, we do not want you in our squad. Accept that and go crawl back into whatever hole you crawled out of. You  brought shame on our country once, and that cannot be allowed to happen again.
