Apple Infiltrates HP Headquarters

Print comment Post Comments
Redmond's got Microsoft and Nintendo. Mountain View houses Google, Symantec, and Intuit. And while several companies call Cupertino their home, they're all essentially on Apple's land. No other company can lay claim to the coastal city in California quite like Steve Jobs' loyal band of rapscallions.

And further driving that point home, the iPhone makers are buying Hewlett-Packard's old headquarters -- a mere five-minute drive from their current compound.

At 98 acres, HP's old Cupertino campus will serve as the workplace for Apple's ever-expanding dominion, providing ample legroom for employees squeezed into their current 50-acre property.

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

The asking price was not disclosed, however real estate experts place the property around $300 million -- according to All Things Digital.

But that's not accounting for a significant price drop courtesy of a swarm of Apple hostiles armed with battering rams, spiked clubs, and flamethrowers.
