Our friend Elaine in China sent us a report that Chinese police use umbrellas to thwart camera crews from shooting video at Tiananmen Square. Here's a whole CNN report of the protest's 20th anniversary, replete with government-endorsed in-yer-face umbrella madness:
I disagree with you on this. Every country in this world has its flaws some more than others. China blocks your access to youtube, twitter... etc. Why? The answer seems very obvious to me that they want to censor and block information to the people. Why do you think they would go through such lengths to do so???? Maybe cause they have a lot to hide from the masses. In the states atleast we have the option to seek the "real truth" through research. Do you think you will be able to go on a gadget blog and rant about how shitty your country is in China? Your statements about America would make you a dissident of the United States but atleast in this country we're not going to lock you up or try to shut you up.
