Damn, that sounds really depressing.

So much infrastructure and building. If office buildings are hardware for work and innovation, Apple will be locked into this hardware for a very very long time and updates/alterations will be costly.

One video mentions 11,000 parking stalls and the other 5,870. The size of the parkades I am guessing it would be closer to the 11,000 mark.

Enormous Apple Park Opening to Employees in April
Quote:
Apple announced earlier this week that their new 175-acre campus, featuring an enormous ring-shaped building designed by Foster + Partners, will begin welcoming employees this April. Construction of the buildings and surrounding parkland comprising Apple Park will continue through the summer as the process of moving 12,000 people into the dramatic facility unfolds.

I admire this corporation. Apple is one of the leading electronics companies in the world. The company gained notoriety with the iPhone and eventually the iPad. Apple products all run on iTunes, an exclusive music, television and movie software from Apple. iTunes eventually moved into free podcasts and online education in recent years. Steve Jobs was the creator and leading officer at Apple. The company was founded in 1976 and the company headquarters is found in Cupertino, California.

Elon Musk Has an Awkward Problem at Tesla: Employee Parking
With more employees competing for limited spaces, cars are often jammed diagonally in spots, propped up on curbs or left on gravelly medians; ‘you’re getting your tires slashed’

By Tim Higgins
April 11, 2017 11:57 a.m. ET

. . . In Silicon Valley, parking is a classic barometer of booms and busts. Desolate lots at sprawling office complexes symbolized the dot-com implosion in 2000. Today, shuttle buses from Tesla, Alphabet Inc.’s Google and Facebook Inc. rumble across San Francisco and down Highway 101 to relieve congestion at ever-expanding corporate campuses. Yahoo Inc.’s empty parking spaces in recent years were said to illustrate its troubled times.

Tesla’s parking hell reflects a hiring binge that has expanded its head count by about 75% over the past two years to more than 17,000, not including employees of SolarCity Corp., which it acquired late last year. Its market value has soared to about the same level as the largest U.S. auto maker, General Motors Co . . . .

The chaos has forced employees to come up with clever workarounds, including secret deals at the factory to share spots with workers on opposite shifts. “Employees would enter into exclusive relationships, and payment would be made in the form of cash or a barter deal,” such as cigarettes or help rebuilding a car on the weekend, said Marissa Peretz, who spent five years as a recruiter for the auto maker until 2015, when she left to cofound her own headhunting firm.

Some workers arrive early to find spaces, and then go back to sleep in their cars until work begins, employees said. Others idle in their cars waiting for co-workers to leave, so they can pounce when spaces come open . . .

Getting out of the parking lot is a mess, too. Double-parked cars often box others in, causing employees to blow a gasket. The Instagram account captured a photo of a note left on a windshield that read, with some pointed expletives: “Next time you block 100+ people from getting out of the parking lot you’re getting your tires slashed”—signed, “Everyone” . . . .

Apple is clearly booming. "Ha-ha".

> When someone says about "genius" Elon



Cheap bicycle in 10x times greener than any car. We will see a collapse of tesla in next 3 years when "suddenly" lion batteries will die not even close to 8 years of warranty. Amazon already bet on hydrogen.

^^You left out my ride, a Scarebeo 200. Don't work in Silicon Valley but for getting around San Francisco and being able to park in the city almost anywhere, it definitely beats any car. Cupertino would be a long daily ride for it though.

I'd much rather have Elon Musk than any oil executive or boring auto mogul doing what he's doing. At least he's doing something to change the status quo, which isn't working at all.
