In my last post I’ve talked about the argument emerged between two Chines tech giants. So, the story is not over yet. It appears that the government stepped in, and the two companies apologized to their users for the dispute and the disruption of services caused. Mutual accusations of illegally scanning customers’ data and being “malware”, brought the two companies on the edge of not only losing business but more importantly, users. And they were/are losing those users to MSN Microsoft! At present, both companies are being investigated and have moderated their counterproductive behavior. I will try to keep you posted on this subject with further posts. In the meantime, you might want to check out this article.
