Cupertino posts rendering, plans for Apple's new "mothership"

Renderings of Apple's new proposed Cupertino headquarters/mothership has posted a bunch of PDF files pertaining to Apple's very Pixar-flying-saucer-esque new headquarters, planned for the old HP lot they acquired.

Oh come on. Give money to Obama's election campaign would be considered......oh, never mind. :-)
