This report troubles me greatly! I heard about on Lou Dobbs last night and in the report, it claimed that the Chinese government is pressuring using companies like Dell and Hewlitt Packard to install this software before sale in China.

The whole porn excuse is just plane bull crap! This is their way of locking down the internet in China. They've been trying it for years. I just hope the US companies refuse to comply and actually stand up to the Chinese. If they comply then our government will try the same here, mark my words.

I just bought a new Dell 1 week ago from Dell in Europe since its being connected in a data center in Frankfurt. The weird part is it took 4 days as they did not have a particular configuration i wanted it for and as Dell mentioned its being imported with several other items. When i asked from which state in the U.S. he replied, No, its coming from a China. Obviously you can imagine how surprised i was.

The citizens of China are lucky they are even allowed Internet. Them doing something like this just does not suprise me. Soon They will only have one web page that isn't blocked and that will be filtered news.


Some how i don't agree with you on this post,


China, which has the world's largest population of Internet users at more than 250 million, also has one of the world's tightest controls over the Internet.

Japan PC makers rushing to meet China's new rule of filtering software





Having identified China as a key growing market, Japanese computer manufacturers are racing to meet the country’s new requirement for personal computers to have pre-installed filtering software designated by the government, starting next month.

The Chinese government said Tuesday it will require all PCs sold in mainland China, including foreign made products, to have government-designated software that blocks access to certain sites from July 1 onwards.

At a time when the global economic slump has dented demand for PCs in the U.S. and European markets, China is a promising market where Japanese manufacturers anticipate robust sales.


Isn't this a turn of events, for all of you out there who thought this cannot happen, well it is, and its happening the largest amount of internet users on the face of the planet. I suggest you start polishing your coding skills.

Wonder if their is software like that available for public purchase.


You can already buy software like that in the U.S....even Windows Vista has a blocker if you enable it. They are basically censoring 75% of the net in one fowl swoop though

Very true, since most of the Chinese would not download and install any software for the simple reason they would rather try and hack the software and install for free, they opted for the next best thing, sell the computers with predefined software from the manufacturer, it cant get any better than that.
