China To Require Filtering Software On PCs -- Web Filtering -- InformationWeek
That shit is almost as fascist as Apple Computer.
Maybe people who use Apple will now move to China - seems to be right up their alley.
It's good to know that information can be "unhealthy".
I think Chinese government should consult Apple then they would know hardware can also be unhealthy - in fact ALL hardware is "unhealthy" unless Apple sold it ...
A most favored trading partner, too.
Kinda ironic isn't it?
If they refuse to buy American porn, we should take them to the WTO because US porn stars are probably buying Chinese made breast implants.

I'm not surprised. Are you?
Not surprised at all, The Chinese have always applied a walled garden strategy to Internet Connectivity. i.e. ingress/egress from/to Chinese based networks has always been filtered.
They're just taking it one step further and mandating filtering on the end point devices, one wonders when the current administration in the United States will start pursuing the same bright ideas.. oh wait they already are!
