    Apple's still planning on building it's new saucer-shaped headquarters in Cuperino sometime in the next 3-4 years.

    "The city's official website has posted the updated plans for the new Apple campus on its website for all to see. They include some new renderings of the building which make it look more like a spaceship has landed than ever before. When completed, it will be able to hold 12,000 Apple employees. It will also have a 100,000 square foot fitness center and a 1,000 seat audtorium
    Apple also claims that this massive new 2.8 million square foot structure will be energy efficient, with power generated primarily via solar panels and fuel cells."

    Well it certainly *looks* nice but we'll see if any of these energy efficiency claims come true.

    Maybe they're gonna add a particle accelerator at some point.

    A productivity accelerator would be more appropriate.
