Apple CEO Steve Jobs made an unannounced visit to the June 7 City Council meeting in Cupertino, home of the computer giant, to reveal plans for a new, state-of-the-art Apple headquarters, reports the Cupertino Courier.

The stunning design resembles a "spaceship;" it will be four stories and house 12,000.


Steve Jobs makes surprise presentation on new hi-tech Apple headquarters

Pretty cool and kinda gay all at once. Just thought I'd share this monumental use of money.

I'm not following your logic. What about this is gay?

Are you saying steve jobs has come out of the closet?

"There is not a single straight piece of glass in this building," says Jobs.

I don't understand what you mean. Nothing in the article mentioned anything about homosexuality.

This could also refer to the glass not being high on drugs. But I'm going to assume that it means the shape of the glass. At least that's what maturity is telling me.

Touche for creativity.

On the actually building I find it to be a good design. Hopefully it will benefit.I don't see any problem here.

cool, always inventing themselves them apple guys. i am not a mac/apple/iCrap consumer, but it looks kinda cool.
if gay means "carefree", "happy", or "bright and showy" as wikipedia recognizes then yes, it is kind of gay. otherwise, behave.

I think I laughed harder at the responses to this post. I dont think he meant "gay". Not in the literal sense. And yes...I kind of agree

Pretty brilliant idea. Have the city help fund a project that benefits the both of you ecologically, economically, and improves perception. Man he has balls, I liked how he basically threatened them by saying he'd take their tax $'s elsewhere

These are the types of things that need to be done all over the country.

eco centers within cities not only provide the city with a touch of nature, the centers could be modified for food and water production.

The amount of jobs would be endless if our gov't stopped making wars and started rebuilding our infrastructure.

This stuff is the future right here and we need to demand more of it. Thier taking an area that was covered by 20% trees, grass, flowers etc... and thier gonna make a bulding that holds 12,000 employees and cover the area up with 80% trees, grass, flowers etc....

Imagine if every corp did this in the world ...... would thier even be a carbon footprint left to even talk about.

I hope it kick starts something and the building looks more like a building from the Jetsons cartoon just on the ground.

Finally seeing more trees in building design... Kudos to Mr Jobs & his architects.

I yearn for the day when all structures are built with a focus on trees. Too many have been cut down in the last 200 years and the general population don't seem to care.


I always wonder about the merits of "taxing carbon" as a solution to our planets environmental woes. As we have removed >70% of the planets trees in the last 200 years it would seem to be a major contributing factor to higher levels of carbon in the environment.

Sorry, I'm getting OT but I was thoroughly impressed by the building design and its green footprint.

I dig it. I want a house like that although obviously not as big. To have a garden in the middle of the house would be awesome.

I don't think NASA would agree, that it "looks like a spaceship".

He meant GAY as in stupid, not GAY as in HOMO.

Watch South Park people! (Harley Riders be damned)

It would be awesome if Jobs got in contact with The Venus Project, this could be like their flagship (no pun intended).

why is it that everything jobs sells the public is deemed cutting edge and innovative? if it weren't for Apple, the beatles would never have been known and now, thanks to the brilliance of Jobs and his crew we can finally appreciate a building that looks like a modernized Pentagon.

rest assured, Apple will be selling idonuthomes in 2014. Of course, the first one will come without toilets but, six months after you move in, they will come out with idonuthomes2 which have a toilet that doesn't flush. Six months after that you'll get the model with flushing toilets and some time in 2016 you'll get itoiletpaper too.
