Google suffers further Chinese setback
Loses largest portal
Chinese super-portal Sina has dropped Google's search box from its website and is using its own search service instead.
Google continues to lose market share in China to Baidu. This fall seems to happening faster since the ad gaint moved its servers to Hong Kong after a row with the Chinese government.
More recently Google accused the Chinese government of interfering with its webmail service in a way to make it look like technical problems. China denied the claim.
Sina claims to be the web's most popular Chinese language portal, with about 280 million registered users and almost a billion page views per day.
The portal and news site said its contract with Google had come to an end.
A Google spokesbod declined to comment on specifics but told the Wall Street Journal: "While we can't comment on specific partnerships, we announced last year that over time we would not be syndicating censored search to partners in China after fulfilling our contractual commitments." ®

Let's move on ..... and offer a free solution to a problem which may or may not be there
Seems like then, Chimp, that Google are not offering China anything they need or want, so the problem that Google may have, is of their own making, with it being essentially, a lack of novel attractive intellectual property which doesn't upset and conflict with a present control model.
And it may be that China would be a very generous joint adventurer and grateful donor partner in a virtual control system which can deliver peace and harmony with failsafe benevolent central state and SMART Party Membership Control.
They like everyone to think that they are being revolutionary in everything they do, even though everything has been done before:
Internet-connected Set-top boxes (MSN WebTV anyone?)
Operating system requiring a network connection to do anything useful
Extreme Corporate greed
Using customer's personal information for financial gain
Feigning friendship with Open Source to improve image
Spy on customers
The list goes on and on. I challenge anyone to tell me one thing they made that they either didn't or hasn't been done to death already.
