Is that even true? or just an Apple crap's imagination?I dont think it's a good idea, tho I personaly an apple user. It's apparently deficient in taste for an architecture.

Hahaha, that's funny, I also found it interesting that the Grand National Theater of China is kinda like an old model Apple G3's mouse when the design was approved, pitiful!

this project is for Dubai, not Boston. Even in the first picture you can see its Dubai, just by looking at the architecture of the lowrises on the foreground and the typical Dubai artificial lakes...

The second is iPAD Tower in Dubai's Business Bay, developed by Omniyat Properties.

The first one is using a picture of Madinat Jumeirah Complex in Dubai, but I doub't anyone will propose something for Dubai and put it in that enviroment. Is like ... let say ... a proposal for NYC is shown as standing next to the Statue of Liberty.

The second was just a vision created by some architects from Boston (hence the confusion) before the actual design of iPad was known to them and some media sources.
