Apple Spaceship Campus

When you’re the biggest company in the world and the money just keeps rolling in, you most certainly deserve massive, grand-scale, completely-over-the-top headquarters.

Apple’s so-called ‘Spaceship Campus’ has been under construction for over a year now, and by the looks of things, the mega tech company is definitely not playing around with construction and looks set to meet their deadline.

The plans for Apple’s huge new campus was only approved a mere 18 months ago, but by the looks of things you would think that the grounds have been under construction for much longer. The company has said that they hope to officially open the doors to Apple’s new home in 2016. (more…)

Less than 5 years ago, Microsoft was an ailing giant.

Following nearly a decade under Steve Ballmer (by that point), the company itself was actually a financial success, which had managed to triple its revenue following the departure of Bill Gates as CEO in 2000. However, when pitted against the company’s greatest rival – Apple – Microsoft’s successes paled in comparison, delivering meandering successes with Xbox and Windows sales while Apple enjoyed runaway success with the iPod, iPhone, and later, iPad.

For those years, Microsoft was a largely reactive company, working frivolously to outdo Apple in spheres where the Cupertino behemoth was seen by the public as the great innovator. The pitfalls the company reached with it’s Zune media player and the release of Windows Vista were seen by many as the company’s darkest period.

dawn-of-titans (1)Zynga has had a tough time of it lately. The gaming company became a household name with the sudden rise of Facebook gaming a few years ago but since then have struggled to adapt their brand to mobile gaming.

Their big hit Farmville spread like wildfire a few years ago and that allowed the company to grow and release more titles. Zynga spent 2011 and 2012 snapping up the studios behind smartphone sensations like Words With Friends and Draw Something, and even hired former Xbox chief Don Mattrick as its CEO. All of these changes couldn’t get them back on track, but a new epic strategy game just might… (more…)

We know what you are thinking – movies based on video games are horrible. That has certainly been the trend over the last thirty years (with some standouts), and it seems to be the early consensus surrounding Pixels as well.

Pixels is helmed by Chris Columbus, a director who hasn’t done anything worth mentioning since the first two Harry Potter flicks over a dozen years ago. It stars Adam Sandler, who has also not been making great movies in the last couple of years. (more…)
