I sat at Air China’s departure lounge in Beijing yesterday and as usual tried to get online via Wi-Fi using my iPod touch. Surprised to find that a new system has been installed recently where one *has* to use IE on Windows in order to complete online access. Was told by the staff there that the new system was requested by the public security buaeru in order to better track online activites. And they had already heard quite a few complaints from their customers.
Just another example of the sad state of the Internet in China today.
