red ugg boots uk Apple says it will decide new campus site without an auction
An Apple spokesman confirmed that the company does not plan to hold a bidding process for the new campus, after Apple chief executive Tim Cook said on Wednesday that he did not want “an “auction kind of process.”
Apple’s new campus is unlikely to be located in California, where the tech company’s headquarters are housed at its sleek “spaceship” Apple Park campus in Cupertino, or in Texas,
where it has facilities in Austin that house customer service and some computer assembly operations, said Cook in an interview with ABC News on Wednesday.
Cities across the country have expressed an interest in hosting the new campus. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel told reporters on Wednesday at a City Hall press conference: “We’re going to go compete and we’re going to put our best foot forward.”
Apple’s decision stands in contrast to Amazon, which has held a highly publicized process to select a second headquarters that the e commerce giant says will generate as many as 50,000 jobs.
