USB Dongle brings freedom of the press to Chinese bloggers

Propagana Olympic Games now here and everyone basking in the spirit of athletic competition while China restricts Internet access even to mainstream media sources, it seemed the time was right to report on this cool gadget known as the “Freedom Stick.”
