Google is a company with shareholders.
The entire "do no evil" ideal is cute, but not that realistic when they have
shareholders to answer to.
If Google had not entered the Chinese market they would have been making a
bad business decision.
It's kind of amusing that people are only waking up to the realisation that
Google is just as "evil" as any other company.
