“There’s also a nice view of the spaceship from here. Probably the closest most of us will ever get to it.”
CNET’s Shara Tibken was there Friday when Apple invited the public to tour the only part of its new corporate headquarters that’s not behind walls and guards: A visitors center that basically a swag-filled Apple Store attached to a glass-enclosed cafe.
Two concessions to the public’s intense curiosity about world’s most closely watched construction project:
- A rooftop terrace with a partial view of Steve Jobs’ Pentagon-sized “spaceship” in the distance
- A 5.5-ton aluminum scale model of the campus. Special iPads give visitors a virtual peek at the rows of worker cubicles inside.
My take: Tibken does a good job. I saw more in her video than I saw when I was there.
