China’s Filtering Software

windowslogo_256x256Wow, I just read today that China has announced it would indefinitely postpone a mandate requiring all personal computers sold in the country to be accompanied by a controversial content-filtering application. If that software is in my desktop, I would be feeling uneasy knowing that everything I do, surf, type, whatever may not be possible in some cases because of that filtering. It is always good to know what is going on with your country and that filtering software will surely minimize content regarding politics. While its main purpose they say is to filter pornography, there will be other purposes not divulged to the public.

It is their government so they can do pretty much anything they want. But it would be a good thing if people would know everything that is happening in their country rather than hiding some of the truth from them. The software is good for Windows based PCs. If the software were to be installed now, it is a good time to buy a Macbook ;).
