Greetings! I was in the Bay Area last weekend for a visit, and I decided to finally make the pilgrimage to the mothership that is the Apple Campus at 1 Infinite Loop after getting my first Apple Computer in 1986 when I was but nine years old. That IIc sparked a lifelong interest in Apple Computer, and my story is somewhere on this site.
In any case, I stopped in the evening on my way back to LA where I reside to see the small Apple Store on campus. It is very small and only had a few items that are not in the normal stores, like overpriced pens, mugs ($29!!!!), and notebooks. Right now they have the retro t-shirts, but the icon one and the first logo by Ron Wayne were sold out. I was not to only one to ask, nor was I the only one to take pics of things and selfies in front of the main entrance with the Apple flag. I got the all white t-shirt with the small rainbow Apple logo in the middle and says 1 Infinite Loop Cupertino, CA on the back near the collar.
I also saw the new Spaceship Campus from the 280 freeway but didn't try to approach it. Huge cranes all around it. Hope you enjoy the pics!
Hey great photos, thanks for sharing. It's pretty exciting to see the Apple campus for the first time, isn't it? Apple used to have a Moof! statue out front and to the right of your 1st pic, years ago. And, I distinctly recall driving down from Burlingame, CA to buy a copy of the 1st release of OSX. I also recall interviewing and on a tour a year or so later. The cafeteria gave out free apples and upstairs here wasna make-shift NeXT museum in the hallway. Even the meeting room names were funny names...dr. Suess inspired. I wonder how the culture has changed since the late 90's? Thanks for the memories
