Welcome to the Mothership. Steve Jobs appeared before the Cupertino City Council to announce plans for a new Apple headquarters. The presentation displayed a structure that was four stories, 180 acres and designed by Sir Norman Foster.

"It looks a little like a spaceship landed. But there it is," said Steve Jobs. "Apple's growing like a weed. It's clear that we need to build a new campus. We're just out of space."

Check out the video above from the Cupertino City Council YouTube Channel to watch the Steve Jobs presentation.

The new Apple headquarters would accommodate a staff of 12,000. The plan would be to start building next year and move in in 2015.

Apple finally launched their iCloud and "iTunes in the Cloud" offering this week, and it looks like an improvement over what Google and Amazon have going. You get to use it on a Windows computer, a new turn in an Apple strategy that usually centered around selling people Apple hardware. The iCloud announcement happened on Monday, June 6 at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in San Francisco.
