Apple's decoration of Yerba Buena Center for iPad event marches on

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Contractors continued their adornment of San Francisco's Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Friday, with the building's glass lobby nearly completely covered in preparation for Tuesday's iPad event.

Apple's preparations for next week's iPad event are in full swing, as seen in progress photos provided by AppleInsider reader David Jones. With the decals nearly finished, a mosaic-like pattern designed from the multicolored "leaves" of Apple's logo has emerged.

A large, stark white Apple logo is centered on the building's facade, just above and to the left of the entrance.

Heading into the weekend before Tuesday's event, no additional details have emerged about what the company may unveil, though a rumor is circulating that the day may bring a hardware refresh for the Apple TV. Amazon's French and German sites began showing sudden unavailability of the device late Thursday with a restock date of Oct. 23, the day after the event.

Apple is widely expected to take the wraps off of a redesigned iPad featuring thinner side bezels and an slimmer profile alongside a Retina display-equipped iPad mini at the event. The next-generation Mac Pro and OS X Mavericks are also rumored to get stage time.

AppleInsider will be on site Tuesday and will provide live coverage as well as immediate hands-on time with any new hardware.

I'd like to see those graphics in a wallpaper for the entire line of Apple device screens.

Dude. I would not characterize the white Apple logo -- surrounded as it is by colorful little bite pieces in all colors of the rainbow -- as 'stark'. Stark is for the desert at noon.

So they're going to 'cover' the building. Very good. I see what they did there.

I see what you did there. Though I'd rather see them uncovering something.

So, given that they usually have something "tongue in cheek" about their invite, could we assume that their upgrading their "smart covers" to include functionality like the Surface keyboards, etc?

Two articles on poster decorations so far. I'm really hoping they expand this and add a few more articles until the posters are finally all up. Maybe an editorial on the glue they use to make the posters stick.

Is it Tuesday yet?

I wonder if the leaves represent Apple's upcoming new hardware and software as alluded to by Tim. Things that we haven't seen before adding to the ecosystem. All of the leaves representing different items under the Apple umbrella. It seems like an analogy to all of the apps in the posters for WWDC, as being part of iOS.

With rumors of new 13" iPad, perhaps the 'a lot to cover' is alluding to the larger screen that needs a larger cover. But unlikely

Can't come soon enough.

 

Your = the possessive of you, as in, "Your name is Tom, right?" or "What is your name?"

 

You're = a contraction of YOU + ARE as in, "You are right" --> "You're right."

The rainbow colors in the leaves do sort of imply a continuation of "the colorful" theme, launched with the iPhone 5c.

 

Will there be iPod announcements at this event? Multiple colors?

 

Will there be iPads with multi-color (and possibly plastic) cases announced? 

 

Mac Pro in five colors? :D    (really, I'm kidding, ok?)

 

 

But back to the original point. Whenever they do this "broad range of colors" thing, it usually results in one or more devices being launched in multiple colors. Just saying...

The new 12" Tablet Phone? Oh wait, that'll be Samsung in the Spring. 64-bit!!

 

Leaves. Ground cover. Lots of different colors. I can't imagine…. 

 

The new multi-color, iPad Mini TV Book? :P
