As I see these pictures I’d just like to work for Apple…

Except for the mysterious iTV Steve Jobs told his biographer Walter Isaacson something about the new Apple Campus.

Shortly, he said, that he wanted to build something, that lasts longer than him and that was, what he did with Apple Inc.
But he also meant that a company like Apple needed an image, so he created the new campus and called it ‚his legacy‘.

Strictly speaking he assigned the british architect Sir Norman Foster.


      He’s the one, who created thing like these:


His first drawing looked like a man’s genitals, so Jobs changed it until it was a perfect circle.

But not anyone, a one out of massive glass. Jobs used to be fascinated by the precision of glass and combinated it with his drive to controlling everything:

He didn’t want his employees to be able to open the windows or to destroy anything.

The courtyard should have an aperture of 245m, enough to place three soccer fields inside. On the whole complex of 61 hectars 6000 trees should be planted, especially some of them McIntosh Apples…

To complete the environment protection, the whole roof consists of solar panels, that create environmental friendly electricity for Cupertino.

He described it „as a spaceship“ and called it „The best office on earth“

Air Speaker App Review (English Version)

Diesen Artikel gibt es auch auf deutsch.

Today we want to introduce the app „Air Speaker„. The app is universal and costs $0,99.

„Don’t have an airplay device, and still want to try this cool feature? This app is right for this purpose. Connect your devices into the same wifi network, open this app on your iOS device, iTunes on your computer (or the iPod app on your other iOS device). The app will auto-recognize your device as a airplay device, and you can select it to connect. No additional settings.“

This 99cents app allows you to use your iDevice as an AirPlay receiver.

  1. connect two devices to the same WIFI
  2. start the app on one (!) device
  3. play music on the other (!) device and chose the first device in the airplay settings:
Now you can hear the music of the first device on the second one:
You can find the developer-website here.
