China blocks all Google services as new leader anointed

The Great Firewall of China swung shut on Google this Friday as the Communist Party prepares to anoint its new leader, with search, Gmail, and other subdomains run by Google completely dead.

The move comes as the ruling elite in China are gathered at the 18th National Congress in Beijing to anoint elect the new glorious leader Xi Jinping as president of the Middle Kingdom, with Li Keqiang expected to be named as the new premier.

Internet speeds across the country were well below normal levels on Friday, and it seems likely that the move to shut down Google is intended to stifle any protests or debate on the topic, rather than a problem such as the one that took down the Chocolate Factory earlier this week.

"We've checked and there's nothing wrong on our end," a Google spokesperson told El Reg.

The Chinese developer of Shadow Defender has been missing for over three years now. There was a lot of talk about the Chinese government possibly having something to do with his disappearance. They say maybe he is in prison for developing software, and releasing it to foreigners. Does anyone have any experience with how the laws are in China regarding software development?
