With recent threats of Google leaving China over a recent hack attempt, China will likely turn to Baidu even more now than it has in the past. And to reflect this, Baidu rallied big time at the potential news of Google’s departure.
Now for the most interesting debate. Did China sanction this under the guise of a hack for people from Gmail just to get the stock boosted? This would normally seems insane, however when you consider the fact that Google was indeed, hacked by likely Chinese government types already…suddenly the idea seems quite plausible.
What blows my mind is just how eager China is to do anything they wish to maintain order. To hell with sanctity of something that does not belong to them. Worse, are the American corporations all too eager to jump in bed with the government of filth.
