乔布斯辞职前最后一次公开演讲 第01期

发表时间:2015-03-14内容来源:VOA英语学习网
Cupertino is very famous for Apple Computer. And we are very honor to have Steve Jobs to come here tonight to give us special presentation. Mr. Jobs? Welcome, Mr Jobs: you have a fan club here.. Thank you. Apple's grown like a weed, and as you know, we've always been in Cupertino. Started in an office par, eventually, got the buildings, we are in now the corner of the ends of 280.and those buildings hold maybe 2600 or 2800 people. But we've got almost 12,000 people in the area. So we're renting buildings - not very good buildings, either at an ever-greater radius from our campus and we're putting people in those. It is clear that we need to build new campus, so we just add space. That doesn't mean we don't need the one we got, we do need it, but we need another one to augment it. So we've got a plan that let's us stay in Cupertino. And we went out and we bought some land and this land is kind of special, to me. When I was 13, I think, I called up... Hewlett and Packard were my idols. And I called up Bill Hewlett, cause he lived in Palo Alto, and there were no unlisted numbers in the phone book, which gives you a clue to my age. And he picked up the phone and I talked to him and I asked him if he'd give me some spare parts for something I was building called a frequency counter. And he did, but in addition to that he gave me something way more important. He gave a job that summer. A summer job at Hewlett-Packard, right here (on) in Santa Clara, off 280, the division that built frequency counters. And I was in heaven. Well, right around that exact moment in time, Hewlett and Packard themselves were walking on some property over here in Cupertino, in Pruneridge, and they ended up buying it. And they built their computer systems division there. And as Hewlett - Packard has been shrinking lately, they decided to sell that property and we bought it. We bought that and we bought some adjacent property that all used to be apricot trees, apricot orchards and we've got about 150 acres. And we should like to put a new campus on that so that we can stay in Cupertino. And we've come up - we've hired some great architects to work with, some of the best in the world, I think. And we've come up with a design that puts 12,000 people in one building. Think about that, that''s rather odd 12,000 people in a building, in one building. But, we've seen these office parks with lots of building and they get pretty boring pretty fast. So we'd like to do something better than that. And I'd like to take you through what we like to do. So this is supposed to work here. Here we go. Can you see this? So here is we are today, which is on Infinite Loop drive, against the intersection of D' Anza and the 280. 来自:VOA英语网 文章地址: http://www.tingvoa.com/html/20150314/228741.html
