Apple Plans Billion-Dollar Texas Campus in Wave of New Sites

WSJ.com: WSJD - Technology 

Apple said it would add more than 1,000 employees apiece in San Diego, Seattle and Culver City, Calif., areas where it has been increasing staff to support its development of custom chips, machine-learning systems and Hollywood programming. It also plans hundreds of additional jobs in cities where it already has offices, including New York, Boston and Portland, Ore. The Austin campus would have the capacity to eventually accommodate 15,000 employees, Apple said, and was expected to make the company the city's largest private employer. The announcement came weeks after Amazon.com Inc. and Alphabet Inc. GOOGL -0.02% said they would expand in regions where they already have a presence.
