    Not surprising considering that Alibaba is full of scams and counterfeits.

    It seems this has become a global problem. Maybe something good will become of it.

    Google and Government? Hmm
  5. "Google was contracted by the government to provide computer servers to support Intellipedia. Google also provides the software to search Intellipedia, which ranks results based on user created tags."

    Intellipedia wiki entry

    Notice was which meant they had worked with US government but not now, unless it's kept secret...

    That is interesting. And kind of enhances the point..

    Connections between big business and government.

    Private companies are contracted by the government all the time. Lockheed, Boing, Microsoft, it's all the same. However, when the government gets those companies into its pocket and takes control of them, like GM, that's something completely different. It's called fascism. Thankfully, GM is doing everything they can to pay the government back and regain control from the government.

    Google isn't in the government's pocket, but they have subcontracted for them.
