The phrase 'to Google' has come to mean a great many things as Google has become a large and ubiquitous company. Here are five of its biggest failures, and five things Google got right
The China Syndrome
After a series of compromises between Google and the government, Google.cn is again live, though Chinese netizens can only use it to search for music, products, and translation services. The Great Firewall still blocks Chinese users from viewing search results on forbidden topics like Falun Gong, Beijing continues to spy on Netizens (while vigorously denying it), and Google is busy launching new business deals on the mainland.
