Latest aerial photos show footprint of Apple’s ‘spaceship’ campus

“We took our third series of Apple Campus 2 aerial photos,” Atb Levy reports for Apple Toolbox.

“The photos show that construction has been progressing quickly,” Levy reports. “Our previous photos we took last month showed that all of the buildings had been demolished. Now our most recent photos show (we took them yesterday) Apple’s spaceship campus is beginning to take its ‘spaceship like’ circular shape. As in the previous photos we took, the field is quite busy. There is a lot of work being done by construction workers and heavy construction machines.”

“Apple is planning to open Apple Campus 2 in mid-2016,” Levy reports. “Apple’s Campus 2 is close to the company’s current headquarters location at 1 Infinite Loop in Cupertino, California. It will house around 12,000 Apple employees in this, single, spaceship-like building.”

MacDailyNews Take: The scale of Apple’s Campus 2 is massive. For comparison, here’s a scale image of The Pentagon next to Apple’s Campus 2:

        Samdung finds its niche market in Louisiana

        A Louisiana inmate who sought to smuggle a cell phone into a new jail was thwarted last week when a full-body scanner revealed that the device was nestled in the man’s rectum, police report.

        While being processed into the Shreveport jail last Wednesday, Anthony Alvey, 22, was required to twice pass through a scanner (which has been used by jailers for the past year). The scans showed a “dark unidentified object” inside Alvey, according to a Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Office report. Alvey, who was also subjected to a pair of strip searches, subsequently “admitted that he had a cell phone in his rectum.”

          1. I wonder how it would be dialled or how well the fingerprint scanner would function?

            I wonder also if Microsoft’s mail system runs on it and how one would describe that product? A —— Outlook?

        1. News conference :

          Sheriff :” Yep, he shoved it up his ass”.

          Mayor:” Now now Sheriff, that’s rectum”.

          Sheriff:” Wrecked ’em!, hell, damned near kilt ’em!”.

    1. I once visited a circular building where the room numbers went from 1 to 360, even though there were only about 100 rooms per floor. The room number depended on the angle of the office door from the main entrance. You might be in room 3.095 ( third floor, 095 degrees ), whose immediate neighbours were rooms 3.090 and 3.110 because rooms were often irregular sizes. Obviously many of the 360 possible numbers were not used. Rooms that were on opposite sides of the corridor would be just one number different if their bearings were identical, so the room opposite 3.095 might be 3.096

      It made it very easy to know which way to walk round the corridor to get to a given place, or which direction to head after getting out of the elevator because if you used an elevator at the 80 degree point, all rooms directly above it would be numbered close to n.080 and as all elevators were on the inner part of the circular corridor, you know that when you step out, lower room numbers will be to your left and higher numbers to your right.

  1. Hopefully, one or more of the 15000 employees sitting in this building will be tasked by Tim Cook to fix the failed IMAP email app, broken now for six months.
