Google in United Kingdom Censoring Sun Microsystems?

When I saw this news item on TV thier hit count calculations seemed a bit unscientific to me.

So I tried this experiment: Searching for "Sun Microsystems" in www.google.com says that it found about 176,000,000 pages. On the other hand www.google.co.uk says it has only 77,900,000 pages. Going by the logic of the above news item, United Kingdom is making Google censor half of the Internet pages that have something to say about Sun! :-)

This is what I got by clicking on your link
http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=Sun+Microsystems

Results 1 - 10 of about 183,000,000 for Sun Microsystems. (0.07 seconds)

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&q=Sun+Microsystems
gives me:
Results 1 - 10 of about 181,000,000 for Sun Microsystems. (0.44 seconds)

So maybe it's the US who are censoring Sun ;-)

My gramma owns stocks at major computer companies. Sun microsystems is google, they are all apple, and they belong with oracle. It's called an alliance.

Here we are http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=fr&q=Sun+Microsystems&btnG=Recherche+Google gave me 189 000 000 http://www.google.fr/search?hl=fr&q=Sun+Microsystems&btnG=Recherche+Google&meta= gave me 194 000 000 (when I type google.com it drives me to .fr) I would try to googl.cn but it drives me to .fr too =/
