Former BlackBerry employees may want to get their resumes in order: Google is coming to town. Reuters reports that Google's Motorola Mobility division is setting up a new hub in BlackBerry's hometown of Waterloo, Ontario and is looking to recruit people in the area who have backgrounds in engineering and computer science. Even though BlackBerry has fallen on hard times, the city of Waterloo still has a thriving startup hub partly thanks to the University of Waterloo's top-notch computer science program.
