If you have Google Desktop 3 and Google Talk installed, you can now conference-chat with several users using Reto Meier’s Google Talk Sidebar.
Reuters quotes China Business Times, who complains that Google.cn is telling its users when results are censored:
“Does a business operating in China need to constantly tell customers that it’s abiding by the laws of the land?” it said, adding that Google had “incited” a debate about censorship.
The paper likened Google to “an uninvited guest” telling a dinner host “the dishes don’t suit his taste, but he’s willing to eat them as a show of respect to the host”.
How ironic that Google is now attacked from two sides – those who think they do too little to oppose censorship, and those who think they do too much. (By the way, I don’t think oppressing freedom of speech is a Chinese law, as the China Business Times, and Google in their result pages, suggest.)
Lerrey Lin is... Googleman.
