Whenever I tell people I am from Mountain View, California… the line that proceeds is usually, “Where Google began!?” and yes, it is true. where i grew up there was FREE wifi for the entire city what a beautiful idea.

So when I first heard about Google’s pull out of china, I was a bit distraught. How can that be, gmail/gchat/gvchat, is my LIFELINE… =/

And the verdict is in, Google has officially announced they have stopped censoring their search services on google.cn, all the google searches, youtube, news, blogger, gmail, the google images, everything. =P

BUT we are getting redirected to http://www.google.hk. which is  FINE by me.. and thanks to somegirlwitha.com… she’s also discovered a page that has mainland updates www.google.com/report.html
