Last week the company gave the Cupertino city council revisions to the plans for its new headquarters that will likely push completion into 2016 at the earliest, about a year behind schedule.
"They could conceivably break ground in 2013, but only if everything goes smoothly," city manager David Brandt told Bloomberg. It depends, he said, on the city council approving the project quickly, and on residents not filing legal challenges. "The project is running a little bit slow."
Below the fold: Video of Jobs' presentation of the project to the city council, made four months before he died. It was his final public appearance.

Gruber, Mossberg, Om and more. Walking the media line at the iPhone 4S event
This 53-second YouTube video is what you might call media inside baseball.
It was shot outside Apple's (AAPL) Town Hall auditorium while the invited press cooled their heels in advance of Tuesday's iPhone 4S event.
That's the Wall Street Journal's Walt Mossberg with the white Van Dyke at the 28-second mark. Daring Fireball's John Gruber is the tall guy in dark MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Oct 4, 2011 10:28 PM ET
It starts in June 2010 with the launch of the iPhone 4 and ends -- maybe -- this Tuesday
Somebody has taken the trouble to document -- with footnotes -- the rumor-filled roadmap that has brought us to Tuesday's iPhone press event at Apple (AAPL) headquarters in Cupertino, Calif.

The Mac Observer's widely reposted comparison was a little off
Kudos to The Mac Observer's John Martellaro for dusting off his geometry and calculating the diameter of the circle that would circumscribe the Pentagon's five 921-foot sides. Answer: 1,566 feet.
But he went astray when he eyeballed the floor plans for Apple's (AAPL) proposed new headquarters -- made public last week by the Cupertino city council -- to estimate the diameter the MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Aug 17, 2011 8:59 AM ET

"We do have a shot at building the best office building in the world"
On Monday, Steve Jobs unveiled the iCloud. On Tuesday, he revealed his plans for Apple's (AAPL) new earthly headquarters: a four-story circle of glass big enough to house 13,000 employees.
"It a little like a spaceship has landed," he told Cupertino's star-struck city council.
His 20-minute presentation mixed carrots (150 landscaped acres where now there are concrete parking lots) MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jun 8, 2011 7:34 AM ET
Its campus "bursting at the seams," the company gobbles up another slice of its home town
