Another Sign That Apple Is Taking Over… They Buy The Old HP Campus

Apple apparently needs more room for their merry band of employees. So Apple went looking for some extra real estate and found some in the form of HP’s old campus:

About a five-minute drive from Apple headquarters, the 98-acre parcel of land is adjacent to 50 acres Apple acquired back in 2006 and will be used to house a workforce that’s expanding nearly as quickly as the market for iOS devices.

“We now occupy 57 buildings in Cupertino and our campus is bursting at the seams,” Apple spokesman Steve Dowling told the Mercury News, which first reported the story. “These offices will give us more space for our employees as we continue to grow.”

I do have one question. US based employees get all this “new” office space. But what do the staff in China who make those shiny iDevices get? Likely more of the same that they get now. That’s too bad.
