Apple to open $1 billion 3,000-employee campus in North Carolina

Apple on Monday announced plans to open a new campus in the Raleigh, North Carolina area. The company will spend over $1 billion on the campus, eventually employing 3,000 software engineers and machine learning employees.

The campus is a sign of Apple’s continued expansion beyond its headquarters in Cupertino, California, where most of its engineering has been based. Apple’s $1 billion campus in Austin, Texas, is expected to open next year.

Apple joins other Silicon Valley technology companies that are expanding outside the Bay Area to gain access to a wider pool of engineering talent and in response to high housing prices and other costs of living in the region.

Apple also said Monday it was rapidly expanding in other cities where it has engineering operations. It plans to employ 5,000 people in San Diego, 3,000 people in Culver City in Los Angeles, and 700 in Boulder, Colorado, by 2026. Apple also said it employs 1,000 people in Seattle, and plans to double that. In total, Apple said it plans to add 20,000 jobs in the U.S. over the next five years.

Still, Apple will continue to be based in Silicon Valley, where it has about 25,000 employees, including 12,000 employees in its loop-shaped headquarters.

MacDailyNews Note: North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper said in a statement today, “Apple’s decision to build a new campus in Wake County showcases many of best things about North Carolina — our world-class universities, tech-ready workforce and welcoming communities that make our state one a great place to live and work.”

    1. Tim Cook is the HYPOCRITE CEO of all time. Turns a blind eye to China human rights abuses as greedy Apple that does not pay its fair share of taxes, Biden will raise them, uses slave labor to make record profits. TxUseless totally supports Cook in everything he does without question another HYPOCRITE of epic proportions…

        1. TRUTH is TIMELESS. What’s your problem today with common sense truth. Exposing the Leftist Western Media that lies daily, you have a problem with that?

          Of course you do…

      1. Nice sentiment, but a letter in the Opinions section of a newspaper looks like the same useless cherry picked garbage that your friend First Then would post on a computer blog.

        One wonders why genuine conservitard concern for the welfare of Muslim minorities in foreign nations wasn’t expressed anywhere until a few years ago, and today the issue seems to be used only for the purpose of jockeying AAPL stick price around. It isn’t hard to see the real incentives behind much of the rhetoric on this pathetic website.

        News flash: the 499 other Fortune 500 US giant global corporations are just as deep in China, and lobby for the same special treatment. They won’t leave China because China has 3 times the potential customers and is clearly on track to be richer than the aging USA. This is universally true regardless of whether you personally view the CEO as liberal or conservative.

        Same as it has been since 1972.

        1. 1972? China joined the World Trade Organization on December 11, 2001.

          What are your facts “499 other Fortune 500 US giant global corporations are just as deep in China, and lobby for the same special treatment.”

          Regardless of the exact number, they are all making money off of slave labor in a country with the most oppressive government monitoring its citizens, mandating how many children women can have, and the worst human rights and religious rights abuses in the world today.

          “They won’t leave China because China has 3 times the potential customers and is clearly on track to be richer than the aging USA. This is universally true regardless of whether you personally view the CEO as liberal or conservative.”

          Of course not. So that is just peachy and fine with you, cheering all 500 money whore companies taking advantage of slave labor for obscene profits and turning a blind eye to human rights abuses. The world’s biggest CEO HYPOCRITE Tim Cook who preaches SJW values in the USA, says NOTHING in China. He bows continually to his Chinese Masters and readily accepts censorship and would not dare speaking out for human rights.

          At one time CBS 60 Minutes back when they practiced honest journalism would do exposes on American companies abroad taking advantage of slave labor. Today, they have abdicated all journalism standards and are woke biased leftists not only ignoring this story, but hunting down anyone that does not agree with their corrupt politics.

          How noble of you @Try Again and Tim Cook and 500 companies. Not!…

        2. “One wonders why genuine conservitard concern for the welfare of Muslim minorities in foreign nations wasn’t expressed anywhere until a few years ago”

          You mean like the Kurds, Kuwaitis, Iraqis, Bosnians, Afghans, Jordanians, Iranians and Egyptians? And by minorities in many of those situations I mean politically, culturally OR religiously (yes, you can be a Muslim in a Muslim country and still be a minority for certain beliefs, expressed or not because of fear).

          In each of those case (and many more) Republicans have supported helping them and their plight. Maybe not every time and every circumstance, but your statement is tilted bullshit.

          PLO much…?

  1. As of 4:37 CDT on April 26, MDN has posted 9 articles today. Two have received no comments at all. Two have received one comment, which was on track, each. One has received three on-track comments. One has five Apple-bashing, but at least relevant, comments. This article has received only the previous political comment.The remaining two articles have been completely highjacked by almost fifty political comments. So, as usual, MDN is five-to-one politics over tech news today.

      1. My point is that what used to be an Apple tech site has been hijacked and turned into a weapon by extremists, just like those airliners almost twenty years ago. On a very heavy Apple news day (new OSs, US investments, recent product releases, etc.), at least four out of five comments have no serious connection to the company, its products, or its stock. To the limited extent there is any connection at all, it is to attack Tim Cook for being a symbol of everything the far right hates.

        The really telling thing isn’t how many political comments are being posted, but how few are nonpolitical. The toxic atmosphere is driving away ordinary readers in droves. The few regular posters remaining who are left of Attila the Hun are basically conducting a rearguard action to challenge statements that are obviously material falsehoods. We wouldn’t bother, but any lie that goes unchallenged will eventually be regarded as true by frequent repetition.

        1. For your information asswipe many of us read the article, check the comments then see your dumbass lurking and move on.

          MDN makes his money off of clicks, not comments. Most of us who have been here 5, 10, or 15 years + treat it like a bar. Some nights the people are in front of the TV, some nights the dance floor, other nights shooting pool or moving around checking women. Different stories have different draws on different days.

          But then there are those poor schmucks with nothing to do but sit on a stool, take shots and complain how everyone else at the bar is a big fat loser.

          You’re such a turd.

        2. For you to irresponsibly equate free speech on MDN to hijacking and murder of thousands of innocent citizens clearly spells out what a loose lipped Leftist brainless numbskull you are.

          We tolerate your consistent lying Leftist poison and we are still here, the republic is saved.

          “The few regular posters remaining who are left of Attila the Hun are basically conducting a rearguard action to challenge statements that are obviously material falsehoods.”

          Oh poor baby, so worried the Leftists falsehoods are no longer front and center. Good!

          I am still waiting for the “white male conservative Republican” from Texas to speak out for conservative values.

          Not fret over Leftist falsehoods and the balance of voices here lately. You know you are really STUPID. You just outed yourself caring more about Leftist opinions while betraying your claim of a conservative Republican.

          Gawd, you are one arrogant sanctimonious LIAR…

        3. And you speak as if you are free of the blame you lay upon the “extremists” with weaponized opinions. Time for a head check.

          I will never forget the extreme mental displacement that was part of the blame bestowed upon those that held an opposing view of the lockdown.

          Such people were equated with the “lawlessness of Somalia.” Besides being racist, the lack of equivalency is simply extreme and pure idealogical exaggeration.

          This is just one. Could you please tell the Charlottesville story again?

      1. Of course not, TxUseless hypocrisy is crystal clear for ALL to see. He is not consistent, totally Leftist BIASED and does not have a shred of credibility. Lately he is crying far leftist voices are not here to his liking. So much for his BIG LIE he is a conservative Republican…

  2. You righties can’t expect to break the rules by making an off-topic argument and then complain because somebody responds with a counter argument. Unless both sides are following MDN’s announced policies, neither side can be expected to follow them.

      1. Then try being truthful for once. You never bring evidence to support your opinions and you always resort to personal attacks. That debate style loses every time.

          1. You haven’t said anything for years. All hyperbole, strawman, projection, and ad hominem. That is all you ever have.

            data references cites by Goeber: almost 0

            personal attacks and labeling: every. single. post.

            You are a loser who hasn’t won a debate yet, Goeber. Your turd friend Tower Thug aint any better. But since you two love rolling in the mud together, let’s leave you two to have your fun.

            The article was about Apple creating new investments in the USA. From the first second this article was posted, you three asshats have tried to use corporate news as propaganda for your has-been political hero. How pathetic is that? Timmy announced this during the Biden administration, you effing idiots. And it has nothing to do with either goddam corrupt political party. Can you not understand this????????????????????

    1. It’s odd how you come here to stir shit and then complain about the smell.

      “You righties”…
      Gee, You’ve stated several times to be a Conservative, so I guess now the claim will be you never said that either.

      Get off your high horse, this isn’t a court room where you can skew words and facts for a judge to get your way.
      I remember seeing an article here several months ago with NO comments and then you chimed in that unless it’s political no one wants to comment. Yes, I know you’ll deny, that’s what paid liars do.

      Many people come here to discuss many things, Mac computers is what we have in common.
      You have made this semi-rough neighborhood more toxic than the Love Canal, so the reflex of some is to hop on a political issue because sure as shiTXer stinks you’ll be posting if you haven’t already.

      Try this. Take a week or two off OR change your handle and ignore the political stuff.
      There will still be some, there always has been (in my 15 years here) but it may just get a little more on topic without the Self-Anointed Nanny lurking about wronging every Right reply and running the voting tabs.

  3. TowerTone, I appreciate you have been a loyal follower of MDN for 15 years. So have I, but used different handles and avatars at times.

    TxLIAR used the term “You righties” he outed himself, once and for ALL, as the serial liar he has been for years. He lies repeatedly about being a conservative Republican and not ONCE supported President Trump or any conservative cause. Not once!

    Instead he is on record supporting Hillary and philanderer husband Bill, AOC, Biden, woke SJW Cook and never read one word of support for a Republican holding office in Texas or D.C. Not once. and that speaks VOLUMES.

    An unabashed LIAR without a conscience agree you gave him great advice. Retire the LIAR screen name, take a break from woke politics for a week or two. Come back under a new screen name and support all the Leftist causes his heart desires.

    That I can respect as honest, but not now, as DISHONEST TxLIAR…

    1. I’ve said this before but I’ll repeat it, when I fist got an iNtel-iMac early 2006 I visited many MANY sites to learn as much possible. One of the first tings I learned was Liberals run most Mac sites and bullied the comments section.

      Eventually I sided with the few Conservatives that would pop up to out the most outlandish of comments (this was the run-up to Obama so the stupidity was strong with these…). I began to notice many Conservative posters would fade away and then I found out why when MacWorld threatened to ban me when I replied to a completely fabricated lie about Iraq. When the person who made the comment kept making asinine remarks and mine got deleted the writing was on the wall (thread) and it said the Lefties have no tolerance for diversity.

      Not here though. Some threads went for days and days back and forth with many good Liberals actually making valid points and the stupid ones being called out. Same on the Right.

      Sadly many of those good people moved on or (even worse) became more bitter when their God Obama turned out to be thinned skinned and full of everything but the truth. Trump then proceeded to cause their little heads to explode.

      I miss many of them because they had good Mac info and could also be entertaining, but that all went out the window with TDS.

      The reason TerdX Ferguson goes too far with me is his consistent undermining of America, outcome be damed, as long as he gets a jab in to people on the Right.

      Serious to God I don’t know how a paid Chinese poster or programmed bot would change a word or sentence TxUser has ever uttered, and for that he has become the single most disgusting person I have ever encountered on the web. I have never seen a Leftist here more hell-bent on the destruction of America through constant manipulation than him.

      I pity the folks he prosecuted to win even if he knew they were innocent…

      1. “The reason TerdX Ferguson goes too far with me is his consistent undermining of America, outcome be damed, as long as he gets a jab in to people on the Right.”

        Yes, TxLIAR prides himself on putting down the Right daily.

        “he has become the single most disgusting person I have ever encountered on the web. I have never seen a Leftist here more hell-bent on the destruction of America through constant manipulation than him.”

        AMEN Brother! Well said. Lying unrepentant dishonest no conscience worst of the worst…
