China's new search engine unlikely to do much work
Set up by China's state-run news outlets, Chinaso.com allows users to search reports published by newspapers and magazines operating in the country, according to local wire Xinhua News Agency. The Chinese-language platform scours through news, images, videos, and maps, as well as 16 TV channels covering a range of genres such as economy and sports.
The search engine was built by the IT arm jointly funded by China's state-run media outlets including four local newspapers, two news agencies, and the state broadcaster China Central Television. People's Daily and Xinhua are among the founders.
