“Apple is clearing a landing path for its new ‘spaceship’ Campus 2 in Cupertino, Calif.,” Daniel Eran Dilger reports for AppleInsider. “The first work has begun, involving a salvage and destroy operation targeting sprawling structures on the former Hewlett Packard Pruneridge Campus.”

“While Apple occupies a series of other buildings on land adjacent to the HP Pruneridge complex,” Dilger reports, “the nine large HP buildings do not appear to have ever been occupied by Apple employees. Among them are the N42-N45 buildings… which once served as HP’s NonStop Advanced Technology Center.”

Dilger reports, “The technology has now stopped.”
