  • Android executive offers to help Apple deploy RCS messaging

    There’s enough negative tribalism going on in the world… if adopting RCS helps eliminate the us vs them mentality I’m all for it!

  • Apple to open office in Vancouver's new 400 West Georgia tower

    Not sure how old Apple Maps is for this area of Vancouver, BC, but there's no new building going on at this address unless that address is a general location. It's in the heart of the Vancouver business district, near BC Place (CFL, MLS, rugby) and where the cruise ships sail to Alaska.



    The building is super new. When I look up images of it, I only get concept art. The picture in this article may also be concept art.

    My point: It may not even exist yet.

    Re-read the article and it states:
    "set to be completed in the spring of 2020"
    It's summer 2019 and a building this large can take a year to build. This is why I commented on the age of the Apple Maps satellite image of Vancouver. If the address is correct, there's still an occupied building on the site so I assume that has to go first. Next time I'm in the PNW, I'll take Amtrak into Vancouver. It's only 1-2 miles from the train station.

    Beautiful design! Not sure why they wrote "supposedly inspired by a Japanese paper lantern" without giving a reference as to why it's "supposedly"
    Hi Rob,

    I live in Vancouver within a short walk to the site of 400 W Georgia and I can definitively confirm that they began excavating the site about a year ago.  The last time I passed the site a few weeks ago I believe work to complete the sub floors was completed and the work on upper floors has begun so the target for sometime in 2020 is probably pretty accurate.  I’ll try to snap a picture for you if I’m around the site on the weekend.

    James
