The difference between headlines and articles can be instructive. The headline says Google to Provide Internet Content in China while the article says that Google “has won preliminary approval from Beijing to provide Internet content in China”. PC World has a similar story, and PC Magazine also has this strange juxtaposition. Why is every headline saying something more optimistic than the actual story? I haven’t found the press release yet, but that’s where my money is.
How does this square with Google’s threats to take away the Gmail service in China over a symbolic anonymity dispute (do you believe that Google won’t share your information with the police when they ask nicely).
