I love the 'What about safety regulations?' questions. Steve handled it far better than I would have.
'We like our employees, we wouldn't want to burn them up!"
That's class.

That looks like a version of the Large-Hadron Collider (LHC)! Maybe they are going to start investing in particle physics. ...future MacBook Pro will be called "QuantumBook," theoretically speaking that is.

It reminds me of "the doughnut" where GCHQ in the UK is based. Looks like it would be a great building! Very infinite-loopy!

Very cute. I just re-watched the Hudsucker Proxy, a film I used to love. It wasn't as magical as when I was a kid, but it was fun. Now, I think that movie broke my MacBook Pro. The fan is all wonky as of yesterday. And I'm a year out from being able to budget for a replacement.

Cool design.

Makes the Pentagon look decidedly low-res.

Only the one guy with years of corporate experience at HP had an appropriate response.

Those who can do. Those who can't work in government.
I agree 100%. Steve is absolutely right in saying that Cupertino should be the ones providing the free wi-fi with all the taxes Apple must be paying.

How typical of a government body to ask its people "what's in it for us?" instead of "what can we do for you?"

They mentioned an auditorium, much like one used for WWDC, so can we guess that future events will be held there after completion?

If so will it house more than 5,200?

In all honesty, wifi should be free. Anywhere.

what happens to this building in 50 years?

Apple's success is undeniable, but what happens in the future? I mean a large portion of apple's success is based on the ideology and leadership of Jobs. I don't think that apple's success will implode without Steve, but I mean, this guy is like a rock star! But what happens to the building, if Apple would be less successful? Is it likely that Apple can sell this building? I'm sure they have thought about it. I do think this was a question to be asked by the council. I do think this meeting was just an alibi to have mr Jobs in that room to actually promote Cupertino. I mean anyone could have done this well scripted hearing, right? So I guess Apple has done it's service to the community ... Judging from the reactions on this board I can tell it has worked. A lot of people want to work for Apple en live in Cupertino, even without free Wifi!

Nope. But since they threw it out there, they can throw the accompanying fees to push wifi to the people.

LOL

They have his highness himself in front of them, and the best they can come with is asking him for Free WiFi...

The Cupertino area is not prone to the earthquakes that affect the region, I hope. Otherwise that will be a boatload of broken glass to sweep up!

And while apricot orchards are nice... What?! No apple orchards?!!...
