Chinese youth more dependent on search engines [news.xinhuanet.com]

When asked how he would spend a day without the Internet, "lost-web", a young man from the southern coastal city of Shenzhen, responded that he would feel "blind".

His theory was tested on the morning of Jan. 12 when baidu, a major Chinese search engine website, went offline briefly for a few hours due to an alleged cyber attack.

It sparked panic among "Baiduholics" like "lost-web", who baidued everything, sometimes even without realizing it.

He said he couldn't help searching the Internet for information on everything, from business and daily entertainment, to pop star gossip and even the breed of cat you might see on the street.

His story captured wide public attention on a BBS and was reported Thursday by a local newspaper in an article discussing the negative effect of the heavy use of search engines.
