music to my ears
i am glad to see google fail in China, and i think the Chinese people are lucky their lives arent being run by google. it seems that westerners have become enslaved by google, and they are all being tracked, and having their privacy violated by google. the absence of google only means that Chinese people can make their own internet, and be truly independent, something that no other country is able to do, with the exception of Russia. thats the only country that i know that has its own search engine. i am sure there are other independent nations that have too, and i would like to learn about them. i have also checked out a lot of the search engines and maps made by Chinese enterprises, and i think they are quite good, and much more suited for the Chinese user. they have some services on their websites that i have never seen on any american map or search engine. you can look up some Chinese maps on Chinese sites, and it will tell you how much the property at that location is worth. and if you do a search for a restraunt in an area, the map will also tell you the approximate cost of the meals there. the same goes for hotels. now if China allowed themselves to be dominated by google, as most countries have, then i dont think any of this would be possible, and you would find a lot of Chinese i.t. people out of work.
