I do hope it was in jest... but that woman seemed very much sincere.

Loved Steve's response though.

It was just rhetoric.

iCampus was "a research collaboration between Microsoft Research and MIT whose goal is to create and demonstrate technologies with the potential for revolutionary change throughout the university curriculum."

iDonut sounds less scholastic anyway; iHaemorrhoidCushion to the less kind.

Know about glass my ass

"We've used our experience making retail buildings all over the world now, and we know how to make the biggest pieces of glass in the world for architectural use. And, we want to make the glass specifically for this building here. We can make it curve all the way around the building... It's pretty cool."

I hope they put a bumper/case on the building. And hold it right.

That concept is amazing. Apple should design everything. Sadly Steve doesn't sound very well, you really have to wonder if he will be around when it is completed.

Reminds me of the Umbrella Corporation.
Especially with the underground subway if it is built.

Who needs the White House after this is built. Steve should be the US president. And I'm not kidding!

Nice building, but the meeting made me cringe.

IF you watched the video, he said it they would move in in 2015.

Wait. Why are they planting apricot orchards, rather than Apple orchards?

I felt the same way the whole way through the video, you can tell he just doesn't have a whole lot of energy.

Once again, the video has the answer. They're going to keep employees in both of them.

That was what was planted on that exact location before Hewlett-Packard built those buildings.
