But yeah, if these companies moved out of the Bay Area, or even more, California, all those million dollar homes in the Bay Area, be it in Cupertino, San Francisco, Atherton, Los Altos, et al would crash like buildings in a San Francisco earthquake.
I see very little wrong with that. The sooner this bubble bursts, the better.
