There was a tech supplement last year (October?) for The Record, and it
mentioned something for mobile too. They also have some Adsense work
going on here, according to a friend who was an intern there.

There is a fourth thing they do there, but I can't remember what it is.

The core Android team is somewhere in California, so Kitchener is not the
main mobile HQ for Google by any means.
