Who Wants A Chip Factory?

Apple wants to build Macs in the U.S. What’s next? Chips? The mysterious Project Azalea has attracted the attention of various state governments from Oregon to New York.

People familiar with the state’s business recruitment efforts believe that Oregon and New York are competing for the same project, according to a person with knowledge of Azalea but not authorized to speak about it.

Of course.

What is Project Azalea? All the secrecy suggests that Apple has a mammoth plan to build their own chip factory to reduce reliance on Samsung, and perhaps even Intel.
