Coverage on news.com (<http://news.com.com/2100-1023-957237.html> -- from
Reuters) and elsewhere reflects that requests for Google in China are now
met with pages other than the genuine Google site.  With my ability to
access the Chinese network, I have prepared a series of screenshots showing
the other services that, in my testing, were provided in response to
requests for Google.  They're quite striking -- it's incredibly odd to see
other pages below the Google heading in the Address Bar! -- and so I thought
your readers might be interested.
