Google buys Malibu for SoCal campus

Search engine giant Google has shelled out $12.8 billion to purchase the entire city of Malibu in a complex and secretive deal that involved dozens of city and state agencies and requires Department of Justice approval.

Insiders say that Pepperdine University, located on county land, is not part of the deal. The company, which will take ownership of Malibu's 27 miles of coastline later this month, plans to change to city's name to Googlebu.
