Is Apple (AAPL) behind an effort to build a giant chip plant in upstate New York? On behalf of an unnamed tech manufacturer, Deloitte has been pitching officials on a plant that could cost ~$10B to build, the Albany Times Union recently reported. Speculation has revolved around Apple, which is widely believed to be planning to migrate app processor production from Samsung to TSMC (TSM). TSMC has said it could build a plant dedicated to a single client, though Qualcomm could fit that bill as easily as Apple.
