But what is left for the rest of the hardware manufacturing world when they want hard-hitting software on their Windows Phone-toting devices?

Apple submits updates to campus plans, stunning renderings revealed

The City of Cupertino has just posted up today the updated campus plans that Apple submitted to the city last month for its new Campus 2 headquarters, which was announced to much publicity this summer, and was dubbed the Apple spaceship (no explanation needed, hopefully). What a truly amazing place for Apple employees to work on the next iPhone, iPad, or "i" device that comes into conception in the new Apple headquarters soon. They're most likely able to draw inspiration from the very structure that houses them. Pretty amazing, I have to say.
