In a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission dated Aug. 3, Google claims to start cutting down around one-third of all its facilities by cutting or consolidating so as to get Motorola into control. Google said it expects to see a charge of no more than $275 million related to the cuts. Two-thirds of the reduction will happen outside of the United States, the filing said. According to a report from the New York Times, the company is focusing on cutting operations in Asia and India, will focus on development in Beijing and will also make a development push in Chicago and Sunnyvale, Calif.
