It looks like Apple's new data center has begun construction, with the Cupertino-based company's new data center in Prineville, Oregon beginning construction. Apple purchased a 160-acre lot for $5.6 million back in February and threw up a 10,000-square-foot data center temporarily.

Now they're starting work on their fourth major data center, with the first phase of the new data center costing $68 million. Prineville also houses Facebook's huge data centers, with companies flocking to the town because of their low energy, real estates costs and lower tax rates.

 

I'd love to walk through these data centers - who's with me? Group buy time?
