Investigation into Google's $2.1bn buyout of Fitbit extended
The European Union has extended the length of its investigation into Google's $2.1bn of wearable tech outfit Fitbit. The decision is likely to have been taken after a request from Google for more time, with the investigation deadline moved from 23 December to 8 January. Google has already offered to restrict how it uses data from Fitbit to sell adverts in an effort to push the deal through.
