The saga of
the NYC cube continues. For the uninitiated, the cube in question is the huge, 5 story glass
cube that will adorn the upcoming Manhattan Apple Store. Steve Jobs designed the cube, and is very much in love
with it. According to a report at
ifoAppleStore, the titanium pieces that hold the massive glass panels in place were recently replaced with a
different material, at the request of Mr. Jobs who felt that the titanium pieces were ruining the aesthetic of the
cube. Who knows how much of an extra expense this last-minute adjustment was.
Steve really, really likes his cube.
