The Apple Campus 2 video that clinched the Cupertino spaceship

A clearer version of the video showing Apple Campus 2 - aka the Apple spaceship - has been shared, complete with architect Norman Foster reminiscing on Steve Jobs' first telephone call in which he asked for help designing the huge, circular complex.

Apple Spaceship campus begins construction with life-sized models

In what very much appears to be a play on the old school-bound project which asks what the use is of a life-sized map, Apple has begun constructing life-sized models of the structures that'll be included in their Spaceship campus.
