A fitting tribute to the massive ego of the departed SJ.

Trekkies worldwide will shudder in joy.

Anyway, I was hoping to take a ride on this mothership. Sucks that we have to wait another year.
Not just proofreaders, professionals.

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.

I suspect the center garden area will have a Steve Jobs statue.

Guess Samsung is having trouble making the chips that control the Turbo Thrusters of that Mothership.

Not surprising that local government holds up development. Big problem with this country.
