Hong Kong Tech Phooey

a tech junkie from Hong Kong

Welcome to Google Search in China’s New Home – Google.CN is now Google.HK

Extracted from my CNET article here.

Just hours ago, Google officially pulled the plug out of China and the search engine in China now points you to theirs in Hong Kong.

According to an AP Press article, “Visitors to Google’s old service for China, Google.cn, are now being redirected to the Chinese-language service based in Hong Kong, where Google does not censor the search results. The Hong Kong page heralded the shift Monday with this announcement: “Welcome to Google Search in China’s new home.”

The site also began displaying search results in the simplified Chinese characters that are used in mainland China.

However, the results can’t all be accessed inside China, because government filters restrict the links that can be clicked
by mainland audiences.”

So what would China do now, would they shift the power and put pressure on the Hong Kong local authorities…. guess we just have to wait and see.

Anyways… welcome to Google Search in China’s new home.
