Google China Redirect Now Also Censured

Yesterday I wrote how Google decided to redirect from censured Chinese Google.cn to the Hong Kong version, Google.com.hk.

It didn’t take many hours for the Chinese government before censored results were once again censored, but from Google.com.hk. How exactly they’re doing it, I don’t know, but New York Times reports that it’s only results that would otherwise have been censured on Google.cn that is censured on Google.com.hk as well.

The biggest mobile network provider in China, China Mobile, also cancelled a deal with Google to include Google as search engine in their mobile phones.

China Unicom is also expected to cancel an agreement to sell Android-based phones.

According to AP, many Chinese people laid down flowers on Google’s sign outside their office in Bejing.
