Business in China 101: Baidu + Google = Baigoo


You've used Baidu and you've used Google, but have you used Baigoo?

This search engine aggregator (whose, er, slightly familiar logo is pictured above) searches both Google and Baidu at the same time. Results are presented in a single, split broswer window.
