According to the Charlotte Observer, Apple and the state of North Carolina are negotiating a whopper of a tax break should Apple decide to locate a massive server farm there.  Of particular interest to me was this quote:

“Though the Apple site is initially expected to employ fewer than 100 full-time workers, legislators said the potential prize was so juicy it justified changing the state’s corporate tax formula to benefit a single company.”  Juicy is defined as a $1 billion investment by Apple within 9 years of start-up.

And why would Apple need a facility of that scale?  Well, there’s always a chance they’ve been peeking at my personal spank-bank

  1. I would very much like a tax break from North Carolina as well… which politicians do I have to grease to make this happen?

  2. If you had $1 billion to spend, I have a list of 14 senators who would be happy to take your call. Operators are standing by.
