It almost seems inevitable at this point – Google will be pulling out of China. It is unclear about what exactly will still be available to the millions of people who use Google’s services every day here, but staff at Google.cn were rumoured to have spent yesterday watching Avatar and eating a farewell meal, before either joining the US office or finding new employment.

看来这已经成了不可避免的事实 – 谷歌将撤出中国了。目前还不清楚究竟在这里的数百万每天使用谷歌的人还能使用什么谷歌的服务,但Google.cn的员工有传言说,昨天在他们决定要么加入美国办事处或找新的工作之前,他们去看了阿凡达,吃了散伙饭了。

It’s true that Google wasn’t making huge amounts of money in China, and it’s true that they were not the number one search engine – but let’s be realistic: 2nd place in a market of a billion people is still pretty damn good. They will be missed by a lot of people…and yesterday mourners gathered to pay their respects at Google’s offices.

的确,谷歌在中国没怎么赚钱,也确实,他们不是头号搜索引擎 – 但是让我们面对现实:在一个10亿人口的市场第二名仍然相当好了。它仍然将被很多人怀念…昨天在谷歌中国办事处门口有很多人来表示哀悼了。

    • 俗话说的好,群众的眼光是雪亮的,
      你看是选择用百度的人多还是Google的人多。
      这证明Google他不是great。他还有很多不足,比不上百度。
      也许你认为Google比其他的搜索引擎好,但是中国人认为,百度就是最好的中文搜索引擎。

      还有,China 没有leaves 世界。你不觉得你这样说很欠缺考虑吗。
      你那么喜欢Google 。你可以为了Google放弃国家啊。不过前提是你有这个本事。


  10. Then, now, and in the future.
    Alwayz use http://www.gogle.com/ncr or http://www.google.com/ig to visit vanilla Google. Or just Google on some other page… R.I.P. G.cn, you are just a freak that don’t even meant to exist.

    Google is not gone. Just Ascensioned and remains a don’t do evil web corp.


  11. ya ….
    I really think Baidu is better than Google for most Chinese…
    So I don’t think Google’s leaving will change our life at all..
    他走他的,我玩我的,不必为别人而怜惜,也不必为自己而发愁,
    这个世界就是有很多东西在我们身边走走停停。
    TAKE IT EASY~

  13. 靠,弄了半天只是市场部门人员撒个娇?


  14. June, 说话欠缺考虑的应该是你吧。


    • OK 你说我欠缺考虑是吧。
      你昨天看了凤凰卫视的节目么。
      著名的评论家阮次山先生是怎么说的。
      谷歌只是在利用中国网民不分是非的缺点。
      他说这种行为是stupid。。。
      我们不是受害者,我们成了工具。
      拜托你长点脑子好不好
