If you look at a screen grab, it appears the entire foundation is done, and they are already one their way building the first levels on it in various sections: 
Boy, its very easy to lose sense of the scale of this project - when I pause the video at certain points and look for people on the site, their relation to the ring is amazing:   There's a person near that white vehicle in the center...   While I'm sure they will locate groups logically vertically and horizontally around the ring, it may Tim all day to do a walk through and say hi. I wonder if there any people-moving concepts that will be put in play, other than...
I did read your post, and you were wrong on most counts. When I refer to speaking numbers or directions, it is to the BMW system. Siri would be for looking up a number on the net. Touch will never be the correct way for a driver to interface with a system while operating a vehicle at high speed. It is a poor way to do things, as evidenced by the LS460 I had for a year. In fact, Lexus management recognized it was potentially so dangerous that they disabled most of the...
I don't know how old your system is, but on my 2014 650, the iDrive infotainment system is fast, the display is very large and high in resolution - there are no issues reading text at all.  The navigation system, which updates over the air form the car's internal cell system, is very accurate, as is the traffic re-routing. I've no issues with voice commands, and often enter addresses by speaking them completely. I can say Dial and speak the number in one sentence and its...
As much as I want CarPlay to succeed, as a BMW owner I can tell you their iDrive system is very well thought out, and is not in need of being tossed, as opposed to many other car manufacturers' interfaces (I don't even like Mercedes COMAND very much)   Does anyone know, for example, if CarPlay requires touch interface or will it support physical cursor/screen location selection with something like the iDrive controller? It is much easier and safer to to use an physical...
Well, DiCaprio and Bale were both tied to the part earlier, but each bowed out of consideration is the unofficial talk. My vote was for Bale long before any rumors about him - thought he would be outstanding in the role, and physically could look much more like Jobs. But 'dems the breaks... If the writing is compelling, and Fassbender nails the essence of Jobs, it will probably work.
I was at NeXT headquarters for three days way back, as part of the stringent reseller authorization process - this included meeting Steve for about an hour in a conference room on the second floor I think, long glass wall along the hallway. He went on about his vision for computing in future (whiteboard, Venn diagram). What was funny, after almost 30 minutes of Steve's monologue, the owner of my company (there were four of us invited out) said very calmly to Jobs, "Steve,...
The original I'm presuming..  
Well, given that Steve had a wife and kids, one might say not at least considering Tim's offer could be construed as selfish in some respects.   Clearly, his choice, and we don't know all the circumstances, but the excerpt seems to imply, from a time frame perspective, it would have had some decent chance of saving him.
I am mildly concerned that the length of time this is taking to remedy, still ongoing, is because the issue was from external intrusion. If it was some planned change, I cannot imagine it is not tested on offline systems, nor would it have launched just before the start of the day. And if some error was introduced by Apple, they should have the ability to roll back very quickly. It is smelling a little odd at this stage, though I hope my speculation is completely misguided.
