This Is Both Good and Bad

Yahoo becomes the next US firm to pull services out of China (bleepingcomputer.com)

American companies do need to divest from China. But Yahoo! was a source of information there not under direct government control.

With this news, starting on November 1, Internet users from mainland China are now barred from accessing any of Yahoo’s services.

This shutting down of services in China includes the Yahoo news portals, the Internet search engine, the ‘MyYahoo’ web portal, the advertising platform, and the tech sites Engadget and TechCrunch, which are part of Yahoo.

That’s very unfortunate for the Chinese people.

Now if we could get the NBA to drop kick China, that would truly be something.
