    The chinese are a pain in the buttocks for things like this. I have a messenger style application in my computer that is the one many people have been using in China for the last 10 years or so, and you know there are things on there that the govt can use.

    However it's losing popularity in favor of other applications that prevent the govt from being able to check up on you.

    There are about 2 million or so people who check blogs within China, external blogs are blocked. They like to control everything and they're not particularly worried who cares.

    I would say the US should keep away from a lot of Chinese electronics products, however even the US govt must be getting in on the act.
