Apple Inc. is many things: progenitor of the iPhone, home to VIPs named Steve, maker of memorable commercials.

The tech giant has bought 98 acres from competitor Hewlett-Packard Co., which is vacating to consolidate its headquarters in nearby Palo Alto, the San Jose Mercury News reported.


In addition to its home base at 1 Infinite Loop, Apple currently owns nearly 60 buildings in the Silicon Valley city where it has been a mainstay for decades.
