MercuryNews: Apple has purchased 98 acres in Cupertino that used to belong to HP. The purchase approximately doubles Apple's land holdings and makes it the largest landholder in the city. "We now occupy 57 buildings in Cupertino and our campus is bursting at the seams," said Apple's Steve Dowling. "These offices will give us more space for our employees as we continue to grow."
Apple has added 12,300 workers this year, swelling its total employment to 46,600.
