Danish newspaper Viborg Stifts Folkeblad — as noted by AppleInsider — reports that part of Apple's $1.8 billion investment in European data centers has stopped because of issues with the main contractor, Exit. Craftsman have been sent home. “The Irish main contractor has not been able to deliver the construction to the agreed deadlines,” the article adds.
