Apple confirmed that it has purchased 160 acres in Prineville, Oregon for a new data center, reports KTVZ

Tech giant Apple Inc. confirmed Tuesday to NewsChannel 21 that it plans to build a data center at a 160-acre parcel in Prineville it just bought from Crook County for $5.6 million, a stone's throw from the huge facility built by Facebook.

A statutory warranty deed for the property off Baldwin Court was filed last week with the Crook County clerk's office, a public document finally breaking the official silence over a long-term courtship with a company formerly known only as "Project Maverick."


Interestingly, it appears that Facebook recommended Apple look into the area.
