News@Five : Google vs Chinese Users, Eye Fi Memory card, Opera iPhone App, Twitter Spam

ITProPortal brings to you all the dirt on the latest news doing rounds today including Google's boycott by its Chinese users, Twitter's success in campaigning against internet spam and the launch of a latest Wi-Fi SD card.

Search engine giant Google is being boycotted by a majority of its Chinese users who believe that the company was wrong in shifting base to Hong Kong, in order to defy Chinese censorship laws by offering censorship-free search results.

On top of that, Hong Kong based internet and mobile company TOM Online has decided to refrain from using Google's service in the future.

Meanwhile, micro blogging giant Twitter has reported that its measures to tackle spam following through the service have finally paid off as the amount of spam has been reduced to only 1 percent from 11 percent, that was reported in August last year.

Eye-Fi, the maker of wireless SD cards, has unleashed the Pro X2 Wi-Fi card, which comes with a memory of 8GB and Wi-Fi transferring functionality. The SD card will be available in 3 models costing £50, £100 and £130 depending on the functionality offered.

Opera Software company has finally submitted the formal application to Apple in order to secure a slot for its Opera Mini for iPhone application in the iPhone App Store.

Many believe that Apple will not grant permission to the company as the browser is far superior to its own Safari web browser.
