Now the company is seeking to gain ground on Google in the rest of the world, opening local search sites (in local languages) for Thailand, Brazil, and Egypt."

    More international warez! And malware!

    I don't know if this deserves to be negative - I had to do a really dumb malware removal on a POS system, and the majority of the trouble was coming from software that was branded Baidu. Here in the middle of the great plains, at a Mexican Restaraunt.

    It had several hidden portions that hijacked the browser, too, not to mention popup ads. Most cleanup tools didn't work on it, either - we ended up getting down and dirty with it and removing things manually as we discovered them.

    I don't really know why I mention this, apart from to say that I dislike Baidu and I'm not at all surprised at any accusation of them being malware-ridden.

If all the world's economists were laid end to end, we wouldn't reach a conclusion. -- William Baumol
