It seems this area in Texas is getting awful lot of high tech coming it's way lately.Is it just good investment business, or is there more than meets the eye? Can Texas a purple state become into a blue faster than we think?


Samsung Electronics Co. has decided to build an advanced U.S. chip plant in Texas, a win for the Biden administration as it prioritizes supply chain security and greater semiconductor capacity on American soil. 

South Korea’s largest company has decided on the city of Taylor, roughly 30 miles (48 kilometers) from its giant manufacturing hub in Austin, a person familiar with the matter said. Samsung and Texas officials will announce the decision Tuesday afternoon, according to people familiar with the matter, asking not to be identified because the news hasn’t been made public. A Samsung representative said it hadn’t made a final decision and declined further comment.

With memory chips, superminicomputers, and prospecting from space, Texas companies are shooting for the stars.

    Texas Instrument Had fabs down there for years. Maybe state and fed's will create a better climate for a foreign company than they did for American ones.☹️

    Yup, all those high tech companies moving into Texas will bring a whole bunch of liberal voters along with them. Austin is already liberal, if more of Texas follows the state will turn blue. And that is the point. Just like they did in Colorado.
