re: do business elsewhere then

This was my thought, if google-stuff won't work in China today, what will be against the (great?) wall tomorrow? Management of large companies will likely tell the IT department to "just make it work" because they want to keep the China supply lines open (the People of Wal-Mart want their cheap plastic crap and will not be denied!). But smaller companies might not find it worth the hassle to create a new communication stream to contract with one dealer overseas. Might create a small bump for domestic suppliers, though, so the news is not all bad.
