Apple may be exempted from China's mandate that a controversial Internet filtering program be shipped with all computers sold in the country. China in recent weeks ordered foreign and domestic PC makers to package Green Dam Youth Escort, a program that blocks pornography and some sensitive political content online, with all computers sold in the country. While China postponed the requirement from its original deadline this week, state media cited an official as saying the mandate will still eventually be enforced. Green Dam is not being bundled with machines at the Apple store in Beijing because the software has no Mac version, a sales representative said.
