Stashed in: Google Acquisitions
"Google has confirmed Pie’s acquisition with a post on its Asia Pacific blog. In the post, the company talks about the new engineering team now taking shape to “get closer to the next billion users coming online and to develop products that will work for them.” Pie’s engineers will be the start of this new Singapore-based team, which Google will look to beef up with new graduates and experienced engineers, from Singapore and abroad."
Basically this helps Google open a Singapore office.
