Google "Internet giant Google has changed the tagline on the homepage of its Palestinian edition from 'Palestinian Territories' to 'Palestine'. The change, introduced on 1 May, means google.ps now displays 'Palestine' in Arabic and English under Google's logo. Using the word Palestine is controversial for some. Israeli policy is that the borders of a Palestinian state are yet to be agreed." Good but daring move.

The naming of disputed territories isn't really typical OSnews fair


I guess it is when a major technology company seemingly takes a controversial stand on it.

But ok, maybe OSNews should not concern itself with company policies regarding censorship or worker conditions either?
