    Is Steve Jobs over the Bay Area?

    Instead of expanding Apple's Newark, Calif. data center, the company is investing up to $1 billion over the next nine years to set up servers in North Carolina. It would be the company's first data center on the East Coast. 

    Apple spent a relatively inexpensive $50 million on the 107,000 square-foot Newark center after purchasing it from WorldCom in 2006

    Microsoft and Google have spent a roughly similar amount on their data centers.
