The Raw Story

Reinventing office space: Architects call for the 'death of the desk'

In what was to be his last public appearance before his death, Steve Jobs detailed to Cupertino city council, California, in 2011 the plans behind Apple's new headquarters - a 71 hectare campus with an enormous O-shaped building for 13,000 employees at its heart. Jobs claimed that they had the opportunity to construct "the best office building in the world", the donut-like plan by Norman Foster hinged not just on aesthetics but also ensuring the possibility for collaboration between workers who would be able to walk around the new campus, a concept which is central to how architects now look at the modern office.

Apple Watch is right on time

Most Big Apple Announcements follow a familiar pattern.

Steve Jobs was a low-tech parent

While many parents allow their children to bathe in the glow of tablets, smartphones and computers day and night, Steve Jobs limited the time his kids spent on gadgets at home. When Steve Jobs was running Apple, he was known to call journalists to either pat them on the back for a recent article or, more often than not, explain how they got it wrong.

Square reportedly turned down $3 billion offer from Apple

Apple put mobile wallet payment platforms like Google Wallet, Square and PayPal on notice this week with the reveal of i Pay, but before Cupertino decided to launch its answer to the wallet, sources tell TechCrunch the company was eyeing an acquisition of Square. Square's simplistic payments platform seems like it would have been the perfect fit for Apple and would have added "Next Steve Jobs Nominee" Jack Dorsey to its loaded executive ranks, but after Apple executives failed to put enough cash on the table, Square walked away from negotiations.
