SILICON VALLEY -- Apple will establish an R&D facility in Japan, the company's first overseas site of its kind, with plans to tap more of the country's cutting-edge technologies for its products.

     The research and development center, to be staffed by several dozen people, is expected to launch as early as next spring in Yokohama's Minato Mirai district, according to the plan announced Tuesday. The facility will help expand its business in Japan and create jobs, Apple said.
