Yes people, they actually did it. Let me just say its not what you think you’ll see lol.

I actually didn’t post anything on Steve Jobs but I just found this picture interesting rather than provocative. I think it puts things into perspective. Also, seeing how I had a lot of debates over this, this is not meant to be a jab at Steve Jobs as as it is meant for the people who mourned him.

I dedicate this picture in honor of Steve Jobs’ resignation (and new Chairman). As much as I hate to admit it, Jobs did set the design standard for most of his products. I still think tablets are useless and overkill. Enjoy making more money Jobs and wish you the best health!

The building comprises approximately 2.8 million square feet for up to 13,000 employees.

It also houses:
– A 1,000 seat Corporate Auditorium
– A Corporate Fitness Center
– Research Facilities comprising approximately 300,000 square feet
– A Central Plant
– Associated Parking

“It’s a pretty amazing building,” Steve Jobs told the Cupertino City Council. “It’s a little like a spaceship landed. It’s got this gorgeous courtyard in the middle… It’s a circle. It’s curved all the way around.”

The design focused on reducing the use of electricity by generating its own energy on an on-site Central Plant, provide open green spaces “for Apple employees’ enjoyment” and to “exceed economic, social, and environmental sustainability goals through integrated design and development”.

” If you build things, this is not the cheapest way to build something,” Jobs explained.

“There is not a straight piece of glass in this building. It’s all curved. We’ve used our experience making retail buildings all over the world now, and we know how to make the biggest pieces of glass in the world for architectural use. And, we want to make the glass specifically for this building here. We can make it curve all the way around the building… It’s pretty cool.”

The city said to press that they are very likely to approve the project. It is likely to open on 2015.

The diameter of the proposed campus is actually bigger than the Empire State Building and the Pentagon! Should be interesting to see how much it costs if Apple supposedly has more money than the US government!

Finally some use to the iPod with an antenna!

Only because he is using AT&T (sarcasm).

If there ever was a feature I wanted to be on my Mac from Windows 7, it would have to be Snap. Gladly to programmers around the world, it is now available. If you want it on Windows XP/Vista, download AeroSnap here. If you want it on your Mac, download Cinch here. Keep in mind, AeroSnap is free and Cinch sells for $7 or you could use the demo. You can even download it from the Mac App Store. The demo has no deadline, you just get a friendly reminder every time you restart your Mac. I hope this information helps. Have a good one 🙂
