I was pretty sure this wasn't an official Google news story because of the subject and poor grammar but there it is. Wow, Google must really not be making any money in China to shut down what should be a cash cow affiliate portal. Do you get the feeling we don't know the whole story?

No, no, no..The primary intention of the development of the shopping search service was to make more money for big G, nothing more, nothing less! Glad somebody can put big G in their own shoes for once even if it takes a whole country to do it.
