Where ever Gizmo is
SEATTLE - Microsoft is suing Google for hiring away one of its executives.

Microsoft also is suing the executive, Kai-Fu Lee, to enforce a one-year non-compete clause.

Google has hired him to head up a research and development center in China.

Microsoft says Lee is breaking a promise he signed when he joined Microsoft five years ago.

He established Microsoft's research lab in Beijing and at one point oversaw development of the MSN Internet search technology, including a desktop search service released earlier this year.

The suit was filed in King County Superior Court in Seattle. Google did not immediately return a call for comment.

funny thing is is that is thier trick. If they can not buy a company they want, they hier all the key people out from under the company, then compete with them head to head.
