It is not hard to raise speculation that Google attempt returning to China market, again.

There is an secret department in Google called Google X which aims to bring “super technology " that only exists in science fiction movie to the real world. And this persistent attitude in science may be one of the reasons why we all look forward to it's return, one way or another.

We may not sure whether or when Google will come back to China. It is not likely for Google search, YouTube and other website of Google to copy the success they made from other countries to China. The plan for Google coming back to China probably has to rely more on the its technology achievement.
