The beautiful city of Cupertino and its citizens are getting a new neighbour. Or more precisely, the old neighbour residing on 1 Infinite Loop is moving to a brand new crib…

24. hepresearch (unregistered)
There can only be one master and one apprentice. We are Sith, are we not? Who must I duel in order to be one or the other?
25. thedarkside (Posts: 652; Member since: 30 Apr 2012)
if you want the apprenticeship you must kill the current apprentice... darth omnios...
28. jmoita2 (Posts: 930; Member since: 23 Dec 2011)

I really hope that Apple never has a university. I'm freaking scared. Almost as much as Eric Cartman thinking that the Chinese are going to take over the world.
But really. If Apple takes over in the future and all I have to use is a Mac and an iPhone, I'm going to go ballistic.
39. remixfa (Posts: 14224; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
the chinese ARE taking over the world.. they are doing it through economics, not war though. They happen to have us by the balls through our love of debt spending.

Architecture derived from God himself - worthy of his second Son, the great emperor of the World.

Alright, that's cryptic. Now I've gotta hear this explanation...

Dang! I must say that is a sweet crib for the Cupertino folks... I used to live in Campbell, just a town or two over from there in the San Jose area, and went to church in Los Gatos... and then went to church in Sunnyvale, while I was a missionary for two years in the San Jose region. I've been to Cupertino to visit quite a few times in the process, well, back in 2001 and 2002, that is. That thing looks really fantastic, and the people there will probably love having it there.
14. AppleConspiracy (Posts: 636; Member since: 18 Oct 2011)
And soon you will be able to go to The Church in Cupertino :-)
17. hepresearch (unregistered)
Hahaha... I see what you did there... +1

Speaking on that subject... anyone feel like a little light reading for fun? Go check out 1 Nephi 8:25-28, 31-33, and 1 Nephi 11:35-36 in The Book of Mormon... so, I see that Apple is building themselves a lovely "great and spacious building"... how nice... (wink wink)

im currently reading the jedi path to a group of youngsters and telling them how important it is to join the dark side of the force... because we have cookies.
40. remixfa (Posts: 14224; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)

51. jmoita2 (Posts: 930; Member since: 23 Dec 2011)
We also happen to have the best weapons and coolest ships...lol!!!
43. jmoita2 (Posts: 930; Member since: 23 Dec 2011)
It's not a church in Cupertino...
It's the Temple Of Doom...lol!!!
47. remixfa (Posts: 14224; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
so.. they have a boulder that rolls at people in perpetual motion since its a perfect circle?

54. jmoita2 (Posts: 930; Member since: 23 Dec 2011)
Yes, they do. Like in that old Indiana Jones movie. Wait, how did you know??? Are you a spy???

Is there some Androider going around thumbing down anyone who says the thing looks cool? I mean, seriously, it looks cool! Who cares if it is Apple's new crib... it still looks cool, and I'd have said the same thing if, in some alternate reality, it was Google's new crib instead.

It looks huge, monumental, eternal, perfectly circular and symmetrical as if it reflects ideals of God's creative power in sacral architecture through history.
On the other hand, the surrounding ambient is imagined as pure Eden from the beginning of man, making this structure even more unique and sacred.
The whole concept render is bursting with religious allusions, it's almost unbearable to look at it, like it's destined to have u ritualistic aura around itself.
I think this is the pure symptom of Apple as religious phenomenon - whether they see themselves as the rulers of the World by God's demand, whether we see them this way. Apple represents something special, something that is not purely of this World - it's something transcedental, on the other side of Earth - from heavens maybe. Apple is, like in this architectural reflection, clearly understood as a divine entity - something that we are all secretly aware of.

Now that you mention it, it is eerily, ominously, well... (facepalm)
34. hepresearch (unregistered)
Yes sir... true-blue, through and through, dyed-in-the-wool!
52. jmoita2 (Posts: 930; Member since: 23 Dec 2011)
I used to be one as well...
But the Dark Side seduced me...
53. hepresearch (unregistered)
Hahaha... well played, sir... well played...
42. jmoita2 (Posts: 930; Member since: 23 Dec 2011)
That mention of a 2 year mission gave it away...lol. Good for you, man.

All Apple secrets couldn't prevent Chinese from copied it products.
