Re: Baidu busy at work on japanese domains

I'd say that if they couldn't develop a japanese search engine, then they would rather use an American search engine, because sometimes they can be irrationally snooty. Just my hunch. Often Japanese fashion designers aren't even able to be recognized in their own country until they become famous in Paris or Milan or New York first.

I hear that many Japanese now are avoiding chinese food because of all the contamination problems China has. It's irrational, but this is the way Japan works. On the other hand, if a Korean company launched a search engine, the public may be open to it, given the recent Japanese embrace of Korean things.
