Not necessarily.   $60 a square foot for Class A office space is typical in Manhattan.  Don't confuse office space with retail space.   A company I consult for, with offices in a lesser, smaller building in the east 30s, is paying only around $25 a sq ft.    
Religion is a choice and it is a civil rights issue, so I would have to say that you continue to be incorrect.  To a certain extent, race is also a choice as people of mixed race tend to identify with their choice of only one of their heritage races (and also to a certain extent, society imposes a view upon them - if someone is 25% Black and identifies with being Black, society is okay with that, but if they're 25% White and identify with being White, we tend not to accept...
 I'm sure it will be, although I think it's pretty much unnecessary for Apple employees.   Someone who works at Apple might want to chime in, but it seems to me that Apple employees should be familiar enough with the product line that they don't need to go to the store.  I suspect they just go to a special online website and order whatever they want at presumably employee discount prices. 
Especially since I think the purpose of the visitor's center is to keep people away from the main building and other Apple facilities.   Looks to me like it's going to be nothing more than a store (albeit a decently sized one) and café with an observation deck at the incredible height of 23 feet.   Wow!  I hope they have medical staff nearby to support visitors who will get vertigo at those incredible heights.     And it's going to have stairs and elevators!!!   How...
$12.8 billion in Tesla sales ($3.198b x 4) at $500 per Apple watch is 25.6 million watches.   Do you really think Apple is going to accomplish that in 2015 or even in 2016?    But I do agree that Apple will see far more profits from the Watch than Tesla will see from the car. This is why I've argued when this has come up before that Apple would not get into the auto business directly.   Capital investment is too large, margins are too small and even with robots in the...
No, I don't think every scene in the trailer portrays Jobs in a bad light.   Many portray him as the genius he was.    And as far as making money is concerned, it's the very rare documentary that makes any, so I can assure you this wasn't done for the money.   All of the negatives brought up in the trailer are already well known, so I don't find those to be a big deal. As to whether the movie on balance is fair can only be known by seeing the entire film. Most geniuses...
No one is imposing their beliefs on you.   As I previously posted, no one is forcing you to be gay or transgender.   No one is forcing you to give up your virginity before marriage.    But you can't use religion to violate someone else's civil rights.   Religion and so-called "morality" can be used and have been used as an excuse to violate the civil rights of others.   It was used to support both slavery and segregation and laws against mixed marriages.  You still have...
Nothing wrong with heritage, bluegrass, limestone or the people of Indiana.  None of that has anything to do with civil rights, racism, sexism or someone caring about what I do in my bedroom.   
Not one professional psychiatric or psychological association in the United States or in Western Europe believes that homosexuals are mentally ill.    You need to stop living in the 1940s.    But they generally do define people who hate as a mental disorder, although one in which people are still responsible for their own actions.  
 I'm having a hard time thinking of any laws that aren't about preserving freedoms, property preservation and not doing harm.     Anti-discrimination laws?  Not harming someone else.    Speeding and other traffic laws?    Nor harming yourself or someone else.    Environmental laws and regulations around food inspection?    The same.    Certification and licensing laws, building codes, chemical safety?   All the same.    So while people do claim we've become the "nanny...
