    Funny how much more ostentatious the tech industry is than other industries. For example, Walmart was built spending as little as possible... Sam Walton even named it Walmart because he could buy the fewest possible letters for the store. To be fair though, Apple and Walmart don't exactly share much of a customer base.

    I won't rip on them though... that's $5 billion in jobs and materials that's going into the US economy.

  3. Exactly. If they want to build a life sized star wars ship replica off the coast of California I would be for it. God knows we need to economic boost in this country. No help from this administration.

    People tend to waste more money on overpriced hi-tech gizmo's than they should. I thought we were in a worldwide recession but it sure doesn't look like the tech industry is feeling the pinch.

    I don't know why, but the bottom picture makes me think the campus is under a zombie invasion!
