I have a friend who is visiting China in a few weeks for a month of work. Can anyone advice the best way to prepare his laptop and iPhone for use over there? I'm under the impression that Google services are blocked. What about Dropbox? I hear that some people use VPNs to get around it, but I believe they're illegal over there? He's conscious of playing by the rules and not using a VPN if it is illegal, as he's quite high profile in his industry and doesn't want to get into trouble. So what's the best way of continuing to access and send emails while away? I was thinking that we could potentially setup a Chinese email address and forward his mail to there while he's away? Any thoughts or suggestions on general digital prep for China would be appreciated.
