According to the Austin American Statesman, Flextronics, an Austin company plans to expand it presence here by creating over 800 new positions in the next two years adding to the already 879 positions most recently created. The firm makes “next generation” desktop computers, smart phones and the like. Dell recently announced that it would stop making computers in China and move operations to the U.S.A. Well, maybe this is the “place”. Also in the paper, Revonics from Roseville, California will be moving its home office to Austin. They currently have an office here and the move will add about another 35 folks. The firm creates software that helps retailers optimize pricing. Now if we could UT to win more ballgames, get cooler summers, and have less traffic, my world would be ideal!
