Wikipedia to Chinese Gov't: Take a Hike

I was just reading an ancient Maximum PC magazine, when I stumbled across this headline: China vs. Wikipedia. The item talks about how China requested censorship of some of Wikipedia's pages, and they responded with a resounding "no." Jimmy Wales, founder of Wikipedia, said that he stands "for the freedom of information, and for us to compromise that would send very much the wrong signal: that

There is a market for consumer electronics magazines. Besides, HDTVs are kinda like LCD
