Google also announced today that they've hired away Dr. Kai-Fu Lee from Microsoft (ouch!) to run Google's operations in China.
Dr. Lee was most recently an MS corporate vice-president and also the founder of Microsoft's research lab in Beijing. It will be interesting to see if Dr. Lee brings some/many/all of his MS colleagues with him to Google.
