China Punks 23: War Week

Recorded on August 29, 2012

Unfortunately, this week we don’t have any sexy photos or stories of illicit, and perhaps illegal, sexual activity on the mainland.  But we do have something almost better than sex: violence!

That’s right.  We’re in the midst of several different wars, some hot, some cold, online and offline.  Baidu is facing off against Qihoo360 in the online search wars, 360buy is battling everyone except Amazon in ecommerce, and Chinese people are feverish with nationalism and anti-Japanese sentiment over some rocks in the Pacific Ocean.
