Whatever the reason, Google seems to be on the way back in China. This isn’t the first time Google’s services have gone dark in the country, and it probably won’t be the last. China has a pretty well-known history of Internet censorship, so it may not be long before we’re reporting that Google has been blocked in the country once again."
