Apple Building New Campus in Austin, Texas »

Apple:

Apple today announced a major expansion of its operations in Austin, including an investment of $1 billion to build a new campus in North Austin. The company also announced plans to establish new sites in Seattle, San Diego and Culver City and expand in cities across the United States including Pittsburgh, New York and Boulder, Colorado over the next three years, with the potential for additional expansion elsewhere in the US over time.

This is weird; I thought the only way a corporation could choose a location for expansion was to pit cities against each other in a public bracket.
