[RIP Google.cn] Google.cn Is No More!

It seems that Google China Controversy has come to an end. Chinese homepage of Google Google.cn is now redirected to Google homepage for Hong Kong Google.com.hk. To recap on what happened, it all started last December when hackers from mainland China hacked the Gmail accounts of some human right activists. As a reaction Google threatened China that it will no longer censor its search results in China and if Chinese Government didn't agree to the freedom of speech, it will have no other option than to close its search operations in China. China Business News already reported couple of days ago that Google may cease its search operations in China by April 10th but it seems Google took the decision quiet earlier this time!

Google.cn
Some words by Google:

So earlier today we stopped censoring our search services—Google Search, Google News, and Google Images—on Google.cn. Users visiting Google.cn are now being redirected to Google.com.hk, where we are offering uncensored search in simplified Chinese, specifically designed for users in mainland China and delivered via our servers in Hong Kong. Users in Hong Kong will continue to receive their existing uncensored, traditional Chinese service, also from Google.com.hk. Due to the increased load on our Hong Kong servers and the complicated nature of these changes, users may see some slowdown in service or find some products temporarily inaccessible as we switch everything over.
