  1. The Cupertino city council on Tuesday night unanimously approved Apple’s plans to build a massive new campus just across the highway from the company’s current headquarters. Apple co-founder Steve Jobs personally pitched the idea of a new facility to the...

    Well you knew good & well they would approve it, or Apple would complain & threaten to move somewhere else.

    I think they should talk to Elon Musk and add a hyperloop underneath the circular facility.

    Why is this news? The only reason anyone outside Cupertino even knows it exists is because of Apple. Apple is even called 'Cupertino' because there's nothing else in Cupertino you could possibly be talking about.

    I guess it's news because California sort of has a reputation for putting environmental concerns over any sort of progress. As evidenced by the story linked to the San Jose news. Glad to see they're not willing to let Apple move to another state over it.

    Looks like a sedgeway race track to me.
     
  8. It looks like it'd be terribly inefficient to get from one end to the other. Unless, of course, they have a giant moving sidewalk throughout the facility. Then it'd be awesome.
     
  9. You're totally right.

    And awesome! :D

    I'm sure any town would be willing to spring for a rubber stamp that says, "Approved for Apple Corp.".

    If you think the act of walking by moving one's feet would impede their "ability to innovate" and stifle their "creativity", why not slam them in a rickshaw and have illegal aliens tow then to where they need to go.

    In case you didn't get the memo, walking is good for you.

    And BTW, did you really need to post this garbage to congratulate and flatter yourself?
    Sort of tedious and grandiose, wouldn't you say?
     
  11. Sounds like someone is a little cranky.

    I suppose the circle is mean't symbolize eternity but will Apple be around eternally? I don't think so.
