Apple's mysterious 2-story structure at site of Sept. 9 event drives frenzy even further - Page 3

post #81 of 132
I don't care what they announce so long as my next iPhone has a bigger screen magnification.
post #82 of 132

You're all wrong - don't believe the hype. This event is certainly about introducing a 3% speed bump and new storage options for Mac mini.

Please at least have the decency to add a source attribution to the photos. Those appear to be straight from Loop Insight.

Having mulled over Jim D's tweet (Holy shit people, hang on to your hats ... ) and contemplated the height of the temporary construction for a few hours, I have finally cracked it ... Apple are about to announce some kind of ANTI-GRAVITY device.

 

This also ties in with the much heralded "iWatch". While I am not saying the "iWatch" is the anti-gravity device as such ... but obviously in a zero-gravity environment, it is important to have your personal communication device securely attached to your body.

 

  You heard it here first :lol: .

Yes home automation involves a lot of retrofitting that many wont care for. It is new contruction and another 20 years for home automation to mainstream.

Right now at least, auto-locks and lighting are still premium priced everywhere you look.

Heres what used to be there.

Looks like they built above a sculpture garden which may explain part of the height.  Or they removed all the sculptures and stuff but I can't imagine that would be allowed.

Just how big are the new large iPads going to be?  :lol:

I went to that school and grew up across the street. So, this is really weird for me to see. The last time I remember going to an Apple introduction at Flint Center was the for first PowerPCs, Power Macintosh 6100, 7100 and 8100. I believe it was a downlinked video of the far away tradeshow keynote, anyways it was my first project at Apple. If I'm not mistaken, Spindler was CEO at the time. I worked on the PDM (pilot down man), OS testing, and 3rd party app integration testing.

Na, they are about to set up a demo hospital to showcase how health kit is used in the ambulance, intensive care, during appointments, etc. Will be enlightening!

i hope its more then just a hands on area. surely they wouldn't have to build a separate place for the press to use the products. I'm hoping its something bigger and that apple have some more surprises instore for us.

I bet Apple got its permits approved BEFORE constructing the building. And, told the truth about what it was doing. Apple's way also means no laws are being broken, no disrespect is being thrown around at the public or government.

Hmmm... Apple once again is proving mystery and excitement can be generated by working within the law. Google has been taught once again how to not do evil.

Let's be curious, but patient. We do not want anyone breaking the law and possibly being harmed just to provide this and other rumor sites with information.

Even a convention centre would have a hall large enough for a full-scale home to be constructed inside. But for some reason, Apple needs to build a big box. They wouldn't be doing it without a reason.  In 2 weeks it will be obvious.  Meanwhile, consider it to be a gigantic, wrapped Christmas present waiting for the day.  :)

Except another venue would never generate this kind of buzz! Talk about free advertising! Pure genius! All it lacks is a big bow on top! Time to buy more aapl!

With all the hype that gets generated around products & the constant trickle of photos & features, do Apple really need to even bother with these launch events?!

I think you're on to something ...

Apple has recently brought on board all this "fashion" marketing/presentation talent -- including Dr Dre and Jimmy Iodine

Time to unleash some of that goodness on the [not so tech] world of Apple consumers.

Benjamin Twine

Let me tell you about my best friend
Well he's got hair down to his knees
He gets along fine doing just how he please

And I believe that we first met
Around three years ago
Well it feels like a lifetime funny how fast it goes

And I remember how this one time
Well I stole his sister's car
And he didn't even mind no he jumped in for the ride

We'd got miles away from anywhere
When the panic soon kicked in
We'd got it back safe and sound no one asked us where we'd been

Ohh Oh Oh
Ohh Oh Oh

Let me tell you why his sister
Why she didn't second guess
She was going out of line, putting on her favorite dress

And oh by God she knows she's worth it
Any boy would tell you so
Well a girl like that is worth her own weight in gold

Ohh Oh Oh
Ohh Oh Oh

Now I made a promise to myself once
That I would wake up by her side
My best friend said that that would be the day I died

Ohh Oh Oh
Ohh Oh Oh
Ohh Oh Oh
Ohh Oh Oh
Ohh Oh Oh
Ohh Oh Oh
Ohh Oh Oh
Ohh Oh Oh

The shape doesn't seem like it would have very good acoustics for a concert either.

Good catch. Hey, what if they did a sort of half-open multistory home mockup? People would be on the floor in the various products testing areas, yet could look up and see a cross section of several rooms on the insides of the building along the walls, testing remotes for lights and tech. It would NOT be open to stroll through, and be uninhabited, so no need for load bearing beams. Whole main floor open to the press with the home demo visible on the upper walls maybe?

How did Samsung erect such a large wall for their "wall huggers" campaign? And in Cupertino of all places?

Man, has the aftermarket car audio industry met CarPlay with crickets or what? I'd *LOVE* to retrofit a CarPlay deck, but the dearth of choices is depressing.

Pioneer, one of what, two? companies to offer it all, has a weird approach -- they only offer CarPlay in expensive models that include fancy navigation, voice control and other functions that are completely redundant to a CarPlay user! Why would I want to pay for all those fancy features in a unit that can access identical functions from my iPhone? It doesn't make any sense.

I wish Apple would just make a head unit themselves, but I won't hold my breath.

Maybe it's an actual car.

I WANT TO CONTROL MY HOME WITH MY VOICE, THANK YOU VERY MUCH. Ideally, it would be via a two-way PA in every room. Since every room should have speakers for your music, that system would obviously include a microphone (don’t say it can’t be done cheaply; my elementary school had one and it was installed before Apple made computers with mice). Barring an installed system, having an iDevice in your pocket or in your hands and using it as the remote is the best option, and if Apple IS getting into homes it’s the one they’ll choose. 

Still, speakers in every room is the future I desire.

I want to just be able to say to the air, “dim the lights a bit” and it would dim the lights a bit. Or “I’d like to watch Mr. Smith Goes to Washington” and not only would it dim the lights to my preset (or off) that I set for movie watching, it would automatically turn on my TV, Apple TV, and play the movie.

I want to be able to take a call and just walk around my house and talk (speaker/mic combo again). I want to set my HVAC and be notified about my oven and my laundry loads being completed.

We’ve had the tech to make the future of the 
50s a reality for 10 years now. What
’s the holdup?!

No-one wants it, I'm afraid. Sorry to burst your bubble.
