Kai-Fu Lee, who was at the middle of a legal firestorm between Google and Microsoft, has taken up his post as head of Google's China operations, about two weeks after a Washington state court ruled that Lee could begin work for Google, under a number of restrictions, state media reported. Lee's first goal is to recruit 50 college graduates this year, the news agency said. Microsoft Research Asia, founded by Lee in 1998 in Beijing, has said it plans to recruit 100 to 150 graduates this year. Microsoft sued Google and Lee, accusing the latter of violating the non-compete clause in his contract when he resigned to work for Google.
