Apple is big enough and successful enough that it can attract employees, some would move to Sparks, but most would not. It's too risky. This is exactly why Apple and others stay here, this is the epicenter, this is where the talent is. Move somewhere else and getting talent is a struggle.
I disagree. They've simply not tried.

If other tech companies can get people to move to campuses in Colorado, Texas, and Arizona, then surely the biggest company on the planet can get people to move 10 minutes from Reno.
