Steve Jobs shows plans for futuristic Apple office

Steve Jobs showed off the design to the new proposed Apple office to the Cupertino City Council. To put it simply, it is a big, round structure shaped like a spaceship. At four stories tall, the building will have a courtyard in the middle, and from what it appears, not a single straight line. It is all going to be curves.
