Apple makes plans for Death Star HQ

Apple design is world famous. Its Macs and iPods, iPhones and iPads – sketched by the hand of Essex-born Jonathan Ive – are instantly recognisable. Lately, it has designed temples in which the Apple fan can worship (and indeed buy) these wares: Apple Stores.

Now the Cupertino-based company, currently residing at 1, Infinite Loop, has turned its architect’s pen on a new headquarters. And even Steve Jobs admits it looks like something from outer space.

Steve Jobs this week presented plans to Cupertino’s planning board. The overlong video of the dull proceedings can be found below.
