Apple banners go up at Howard Gilman Opera House ahead of special event

“With only a few days until Apple’s big iPad Pro and Mac event on Tuesday, the company has begun putting up decorations at their host venue, the Howard Gilman Opera House in Brooklyn, New York City,” Peter Cao reports for 9to5Mac.

“Japanese Apple blog Mac Otakara published a video on YouTube, giving us a glimpse at how Apple is currently decorating the venue,” Cao reports. “Unlike many other events, Apple is holding this one outside of California; since it’s in New York, it starts at 10AM EDT, making that 7AM PDT, versus the usual 10AM PDT.”

Cao reports, “We’re expecting new Macs (including Mac mini), iPads with a near bezel-less design and Face ID, and possibly more surprises.”

      1. Idea, not execution. The execution shows how unrealistic Apple’s out-of-touch management has become.

        Jobs completed land acquisition for Apple Park in 2006. He pitched the architectural design to Cupertino city council on June 7, 2011. Steve Jobs died that year.

        Jobs’ successors continued to overcomplicate the architecture well past when the city of Cupertino approved plans in Oct 2013. Ive and his bureaucracy famously spent enormous effort on the sheen of the glass, the door handles, and other minutiae. Groundbreaking was delayed until 2014; following substantial delays and at least $2 billion in cost overruns, the first Apple employees were located to the building in April 2017 while construction continued.

        All of the micromanagement that resulted in the Apple Albatross was done after Jobs’ death. Now they don’t even want to use the Steve Jobs theatre to reveal new products.

        Why build an iconic headquarters and then not use it for major company keynotes?
