The unique spaceship shaped Apple Headquaters won't be built til mid 2016. The delay was cause by an environmental survey that won't be completed til 2014. The headquarters is designed as a big circle featuring four stories and a whopping 2.8 million square feet. The new Apple headquarters may house as many as 14,200 people. The design of the spaceship will not have a single piece of straight glass as it entirely curved. The campus will be 80 percent landscape with 7,000 trees. via Cnet

The service uses wifi as the main source of phone service with 3G as a backup. Several complaints say that the service is very spotty and switching from wifi to 3G drop calls.

Looks like someone goofed when they created a Flashship Apple Store with glass ceilings the noise levels bounce off the glass without any dampening sound absorbing material. This seems like a design flaw in this Apple Store. Former marketing and advanced product development director at Apple, Monsieur Gassee notices this immediately when arriving at the store. He measured the sound level using an app on his iPhone and found the sound to be 75 decibels.

Slashgear has posted up a review of the 4th generation iPad. The iPad was blip on the announcement scale when everyone was anticipating the iPad Mini. The review points out this is a very minimal update with chip upgrade, new connector, and better front facing camera.
The third-generation iPad arguably didn’t need refreshing; in fact, if Apple hadn’t opted to change to Lightning, it could realistically have held off changing its largest tablet until early 2013, as per its typical yearly refresh cycle. That makes for a reasonably straightforward upgrade decision if you’re a 3rd-gen iPad owner. Unless you’re desperate for Lightning – perhaps you’ve also got an iPhone 5, and want to use all the same accessories rather than buy the adapter dongle – then we’re yet to see apps that really demand the potent A6X chipset.

Vincent Nguyen of Slashgear has posted a review of the highly anticipated Nexus 4. Check out the full review HERE
Nexus devices are already appealing, being as they are at the front of the line for new Android updates, but until now there’s always been a compromise somewhere along the way. With the Nexus 4, the compromise is as small as its ever been, and the fact that it’s so very affordable makes it strongly recommended for those wanting the best of Android today.

The iPad Mini launched today with less fanfare than other launches. According to multiple sources lines at retail stores for the iPad Mini and 4th Gen iPad were sparse. This could be more people preordering the device online than waiting it out in store. I myself received the iPad Mini by Fedex this morning at 8:30 am. A quick visit to the local Apple Store showed a lot of activity though I did not see a lot of people walk out with devices in hand.
