Google Fully Blocked in China?

There are unconfirmed reports from Google if censorship has occurred, but it seems as if Google services were rendered inaccessible today in mainland China.

Following the recent controversial showdown between the Chinese government and Google that ended with China renewing Google’s operating license, the possibility of this type of possible retaliation from China caught many off guard. Again, Google has not confirmed if this is merely a technical issues or censorship by the Chinese government, but it has all parties on edge to see what will evolve from the current situation.
