Default Why Yes, Steve Can Sell

I would suggest watching the longer version above however, as Steve Jobs works the council and discusses why their new building should be improved. I'd vote yes, and not just because the new building is amazing.&nbsp;</p>

I lived just a few miles from there for a decade, and the old HP Campus was really sad. It all started to go downhill when Agilent fell apart, and they were prime occupants of the office park that Apple bought. I do really like the concepts that he talked about, round building, more trees, underground parking, etc; but wonder why he didn't mention (when asked) the 'employee store' on the Infinite Loop Campus ... that could be easily opened to the public. Last time I was there (with friends from Apple), Steve Jobs almost ran me over in his Porsche as he roared around an SUV parked in the lot across from the employee store, and, he glared at me for not getting out of the way fast enough.
