China has been a fickle market for Internet search engine companies

Most companies wanting to do business in China have had to adapt to policies that are much different than the ones in the United States.  For example, search engine companies have had to censor material that would easily be available in other nations.  Reporters Without Borders, a Paris-based public interest group, has reported that Yahoo! censors more material out of all the search engine companies operating in China. 

Reporters Without Borders used a number of political terms that are deemed to be unofficially taboo by the Chinese government.  The report also claims that 97 percent of Yahoo.cn's search results are sites authorized by the Chinese government.  The Google.cn and msn.cn search engines allowed more information through compared to Yahoo.cn. 

Censorship is the cost of doing business in China for companies like Yahoo, Google, Microsoft and Skype.  Recently, Google.com has been blocked by Chinese authorities.  Yahoo has drawn the most fire after allegations the company helped the Chinese government put several journalists in jail.  Although the companies don't like having to censor material, each company is doing what it has to do.




"Intel is investing heavily (think gazillions of dollars and bazillions of engineering man hours) in resources to create an Intel host controllers spec in order to speed time to market of the USB 3.0 technology." -- Intel blogger Nick Knupffer
