It seems that the war between Google and the Chinese Government has stepped up a notch, after Google decided to redirect users from its google.cn domain to its uncensored google.hk (Hong Kong) instead. The search results will still be affected thanks to China’s Great Firewall, but it does become more obvious to the masses that the government is filtering search results. Now it seems that China Mobile might be scrapping its deal to have Google as its default search provider on mobile handsets, which apparently might be due to pressure from the government as well. It sure seems like things are going downhill (for both parties) at the moment. What do you think the final outcome will be?
