Bloomberg reports that Apple's ambitious Spaceship-like campus will likely be delayed until 2016. The project was originally revealed (http://www.macrumors.com/2011/06/08/steve-jobs-pitches-cupertino-on-new-apple-campus/) back in June and was presented to the Cupertino city council by Steve Jobs himself. Apple Inc. (AAPL) said the construction of a new spaceship-like headquarters with a circular design in Cupertino, California, won't be completed until mid-2016, later than originally projected, as the company revises its plans.The new campus was originally targeted for completion by 2015, but November filing made city approval unlikely by the originally planned dates.

Bloomberg reports the new plans show no major changes to the original campus plans, but does include some additional parking, more landscaped area and other small changes. The main four-story building remains the same circular shape as shown above.

Cannot wait to see this building become a reality.

Such a cool design.

I've noticed a lot of basic editorial mistakes like this recently.

Which is why MacRumors should hire guys like us to catch these errors. What are these positions called again.... Oh yeah, proofreaders! :D


Anyway, I was hoping to take a ride on this mothership. Sucks that we have to wait another year. :(

The empire will have crumbled by then by its own ambition and mistreatment to employees.

early, on time or late - as always I will wait for the second patch before risking any shiny new tech from Apple :)

It states the design is being changed. Did you want them to start building something they didn't want?

There are a dozen reasons why a project gets delayed, none of which would be the fault of the client (Apple).

you're implying that apple does the construction documents, hires consultants, contractors, workers and is responsible for the completion date all while being exempt from any municipal procedure that can delay the multiple-year long process unintentionally. please

regarding apple not doing anything on time anymore, while there may be some truth to that, i think it's fairer to say that we're more aware given we try to squeeze any bit of information we can about them and their projects - rumours especially

I always get tickled at the "spaceship-like campus" tag.

Are there any spaceships around as our basis of comparison?

My go-to reference point for spaceships is 'Mars Attacks!'

I'm curious to know how the members of the Cupertino city council sat quietly during a presentation from a ghost.

Doesn't look much like a spaceship, although intriguing idea. Leave it to Apple to innovate anything possible - in this scenario - their own corporate building....

Technically, the position is actually called "copy editor".

Copy editors. A copy editor is a kind of proofreader I suppose, but their job is also about enforcing a degree of stylistic uniformity within a publication.

(Edit: Bill Killer beat me to the punch.)

really? was Mountain Lion late? the new ipad? the iphone 5? ipod? macbook pros?

not that im aware of. seems youd like the latest macs sooner, but i dont know that those could even be classified as late if they dont have a set launch date.

Not just proofreaders, professionals.

"Wonder what's going on," is a statement, not a question.

hi, English is not my native language. Can someone explain why "back in June" is incorrect grammar usage?

It was an editorial mistake, not a grammatical error. The project was announced in June, 2011 but the wording implied that it happened last June. Had the writer actually meant last June, the clearer way of saying it would have been simply, "the project was announced in June." The word "back" in this context would be redundant (not needed to express the meaning of the sentence).

Thanks for asking. I'm always impressed when a non-native English speaker shows an interest in correct English grammar, when so many native English speakers no longer seem to care.
