Joe Bob sez, too much plot getting in the way of the story.

I'll stick with the _Halting State_ plot-- Google was attacked by hackers
working at an arm's remove from the Chinese security services.  This
violated an agreement with the CCP, so Google is following through by
withdrawing money and censorship.

Probably all just an external manifestation of an internal CCP power
struggle, a la the Cultural Revolution.
