Why Google Wants To Breakup With China?

Are you guys are as confused as me, over why Google wants to quit China? Is it only because of one attack, which compromised access to some of its email accounts?

Really?? Is that it? Is this a good enough reason to quit from a country like China?

Here is any interesting article that gives out some more details. Not surprisingly, this one comes from a Non-IT website:

Hindustan Times



Update: Hmmm... I guess there is more to this story. Attackers also took Gaia (which is Google's single sign on authentication system) with them. Well not literally, they stole the program's source code.

What that means, is best left to anyone and everyone's imagination. If the program is not secure enough, well hackers could break in now. Even worse, I hope the system did not have an actual backdoor, which gave Google's executives a direct entry into the system..!
