In an upcoming new book former CEO Eric Schmidt reportedly has some harsh words for the communist China. The New Digital Age, written by Schmidt and Google Ideas director Jared Cohen call China “the world’s most active and enthusiastic filterer of information”. The book also states that China operates “sophisticated and prolific” hacking campaigns targeting foreign companies. By coincidence, some U.S. news organization reported that they had recently been infiltrated by hacking attacks from China. The book warns that with an increasing dependence on digital communication and commerce, the Chinese government’s alleged willingness to participate in cyber attacks could give the country economic and political advantages …
Both writers have warning that the U.S. will not be able to take advantage of the same tactics due to the country legal system and “sense of fair play.” Chinese companies like Huawei are also cited as a point of concern, with the book drawing a direct connection between increasing market share by such companies and the influence of China as a whole. Huawei and ZTE, the two biggest Chinese network companies received considerable scrutiny last year when a US Congressional report highlighted them as potential risks to US national security. The book doesn’t appear to put an acknowledgment on China as an unstoppable force. Both writers believe the spread of technology in the face of tight government control will result a “widespread instability,” the country will face “some kind of revolution in the coming decades.” The New Digital Age is scheduled to be released this April, and we are 100 percent sure it will be a contraband book in China.
