Apple’s Futuristic New Campus

Apple’s Campus 2 Resembles Spacestation

As if Apple needed to brag about  its futuristic ideas any further, the new Apple Campus 2 project is coming along swimmingly and it is a giant. At 2.8 million square feet, the facility will be entirely solar-powered that will house 13,000 employees. Additionally, other accommodations will include a 60,000 square foot restaurant, a 120,000 square foot subterranean auditorium that can seat 1,000 people, and a 20,000 square foot parking lot. Scheduled to open in 2017, the facility will be located near Apple’s current headquarters in Cupertino, CA. (Source: Mashable)

Uber Changes Logo…Again

Guess Uber agrees with everyone else, the year 2016 was not a good one, and what better way to start anew than with a new logo! For the second time, Uber has completely changed its logo and updated its branding. The normal ‘U’ logo that you’re used to seeing on the app has been changed to a…circular thing. There was no press release or social advertising from the company about the logo switch. Keep hailing those rides all you cab riders. (Source: Mashable)

Apple Invests in Wind Power

A recurring pattern with tech giants these days, Apple has decided to take a giant step forward to helping the world by making a huge investment in clean energy. The company has invested in four Chinese companies belonging to Beijing Tianrun New Energy Investment, a branch of Goldwind. As the largest wind turbine provider in China, Goldwind supplied 12.5 percent of all wind turbine installations throughout the country this past year. Because much of its operation resides in China, Apple had committed to cleaner energy for its operations and third party suppliers. The investment is a clear sign of the company trying to reduce its carbon footprint, a trend that the majority of tech giants are starting to follow. (Source: Mashable)
