Cupertino Certain to Approve Apple's Spaceship Campus


The City of Cupertino has responded to Apple's stunning new campus proposal. In the statement, Cupertino Mayor Gilbert Wong states "there is no chance we are saying no" to the new Apple campus. Apple proposal will still have to go through an environmental and a public hearing, but Wong says they are willing to bring on more staff to accommodate the process.

Apple's Steve Jobs spoke to the Cupertino City Council earlier this week about the new 4-story building which is expected to be completed in 2015. Jobs described it as a spaceship-like structure that will be able to hold 12,000 employees. Jobs also focused on the positive impact of the new campus which will increase the number of trees and landscaping.




Progress of the project can be followed at Cupertino.org/apple where they've also posted a PDF of Jobs' presentation slides.

They'd be fools not to. This will become one of the world's most iconic buildings while allowing more workers and business to come to Cupertino.

This gets more and more cringe-worthy than the first video posted. Is it me, or do the council members for this city seem not fit for public speaking?

I mean, I've seen people aged 16 have more confidence and structure to a presentation!

Cupertino has over 50% Asian demographics

I don't think the guy you were responding to questioned Wong's mayoral credentials due to his Asian heritage, but rather because he's a bumbling, fawning, fool.

Dude: How would you imagine Cupertino without apple?

Mayor: Uh, I really hope the best of Apple and with their new products announced I hope that uh they do well with them.

Dude: Yes but how do you see Cupertino without apple?

Mayor: Yes with their new uh iCloud they just announced, yes I believe they are great for this city.

The guy is reading off of a prepared statement, presumably. Yet he can't say three words without throwing in an "uh", and he repeats himself over and over. If I were a resident of Cupertino I would be embarrassed to admit this guy ever got elected.
