In the product, they do not count Taiwan as a seperate Nation but as a part of Taiwan and the Taiwanese Government have asked them to change their stance.

This is a very interesting story I am going to follow, and I'll bet right about now Google is contact with the White House over this sensitive issue. This will no doubt insense Beijing, especially after that last recent article about their demands to the UAE requiring that they cease all contact with Taiwan just over a visit from Chen to the UAE.
Wowza, when China realizes the extensive implications of this, which by now they are probably debating, Washington is sure to get a very upset call from Beijing over this. One China policy, uh huh.
Bets? Mine is Google will ignore Taiwanese demands and continue to list it as a province of China. I will be surprised if they change that. There is just too much at stake.
