iOS 5 to bring FaceTime over 3G?

MacRumors received this screenshot from an anonymous reader today stating that it looks like Apple is preparing to take FaceTime over the carrier frequencies. It will probably be limited to 3G only, and not Edge. This is all speculation of course.

Unless you are apart of the jailbreak community, you are limited to FaceTime over wifi only, but if you jailbreak your device you are able to FaceTime over 3G via the MiFi app from Cydia.

Apparently it will be up to the carriers to allow or disallow it. What do you think, will AT&T and Verizon say yay or nay?

Apple wants to build a new campus in Cupertino, Steve Jobs presents the 'Mother Ship' to the City Council [video]

Straight after WWDC, Steve Jobs is the centre of attention again; this time presenting a plan for a new Apple campus to Cupertino City Council. Apple has outgrown its current campus at One Infinite Loop and proposes to build a new futuristic looking building on land it bought recently from Hewlett Packard.

The plans shown off at the meeting make the proposed campus look like a space ship that has just landed. The idea behind the design is quite phenomenal. During the presentation Steve Jobs outlined the plans and told the City Council that the building would house over 12,000 employees, have a huge underground car park, increase the trees in the area by 60% and generate its own electricity; only using the grid as a backup.

“There is not a straight piece of glass in this building, it’s all curved. We used our experience making retail buildings all over the world now, and we know how to make the biggest pieces of glass in the world for architectural use. And, we want to make the glass specifically for this building here. We can make it curve all the way around the building… It’s pretty cool.”

Apple is planning on starting the project in 2012 with completion scheduled for 2015. Take a look at the video after the break. It is over twenty minutes long and includes a question and answer session at the end. It is well worth watching! Let us know what you think when you have picked your jaw up from the floor!
