    I’m in China now (8:30am July 10th) and get redirected from the .cn to the .hk domain as advertised. However, when I try to do a search on I get redirected AGAIN to, which puts “” into a Baidu search box.

      @anon #1 that’s very interesting. Could you tell us what city you’re in and who your ISP is? I would like to find out whether a lot of other people are having the same experience. Thanks.

    Google does not equal freedom. Look at all the wiki entries that are obvious medical/political/etc. motivation. While I benefit from a University proxy that grants me access to peer-reviewed articles, most of internet is free propaganda. Giving China google is not liberating, and is really just reinforcing Apple-addict consumerism.
