At Apple HQ

At Apple HQ

Having used Mac computers professionally since 1988, Roger is a bit of an Apple fan.

So with Culpertino close to San Francisco airport (we had just taken Stephanie there to catch her return flight) we went for a mini Steve Jobs pilgrimage.

First stop, the 32 acre existing Apple headquarters One Infinite Loop – a University campus both in terms of the buildings and the young people. But they have that purposeful “Apple strut”. Second, we drove a couple of blocks to spy out the new $5billion Apple Park development designed to take 12,000 employees.

Apple bought the land 11 years ago and Steve Jobs personally worked with Norman Foster on the ‘spaceship’ circular design.
