FROM Steven Levy
Apple pays homage to Steve Jobs with new headquarters Steven Levy's cover story in WIRED In 2011, Steve Jobs went before the Cupertino City Council. He was in very poor health but he was animated by his next big project: a new campus that could fit 12,000 Apple employees. He presented renderings of a giant ring sitting in a tree-filled park. Six years later that building has opened to the first wave of Apple employees, designed by Norman Foster at an estimated price of $5 billion. Steven Levy got a personal tour with Apple Chief Designer Jony Ive and wrote about it for Wired magazine. Along the way he reflects on why the company needs four-story glass doors, Jobs' passion for the perfect tree and whether the spectacular building will serve the company's future needs. We also talk with David Jenkins, editor of Norman Foster Works, about the lauded British architect and why he was such a good match for Jobs.
Apple's new headquarters: Vision from the future or vision of excess? Apple’s new Cupertino headquarters has been called the “mothership.” It looks like a circular spaceship. Some 14,000 employees will land there. Designed by architect Norman Foster, it cost $5 billion. Fake hills were created to shield it from the outside world.
Accusations of lying fly between James Comey and White House During his testimony Thursday, former FBI Director James Comey accused President Trump and other White House officials of lying when they said the FBI was in disarray and its staff had lost confidence in him. President Trump’s lawyer said Comey was wrong -- that the president never asked for his loyalty, and never asked him to back off the investigation into former NSA director Michael Flynn.
