Photos released on the Internet this week show that workers contracted by Apple Inc. have finished stamping the company's iconic color smudges over San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, in anticipation of next week’s event.
Apple is in for a big week. The Cupertino giant has scheduled a media event for March 7, Wednesday, at San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (one of Apple’s favorite venues for big product releases), where Tim Cook & Co. will take the stage to unveil the next-generation of Apple tablet computers.
The images scattered across the length of this article, courtesy of
one thoughtful MacRumors forum poster, depict the venue painted up in typical Apple fashion in anticipation of Wednesday’s event.
The shots are notably crisp, which does justice both to San Francisco’s clear blue sky, and the city’s multi-disciplinary arts center. The author himself noted that the end result of his work reminded him of Adobe CS3 packages.
Who can argue that Apple knows best how to delight everyone’s sight with chaotic color arrangements that somehow just make sense?
At next week’s event, the company is expected to showcase a much improved version of the iPad tablet computer with a high-fidelity Retina display boasting a 2048x1536 pixel resolution.
Another nifty hardware enhancement should be the almost-confirmed next-generation A6 processor, or an interim variant reportedly dubbed “A5X”. The CPU is said to be dual-core, not quad-core as previous rumors had speculated.
However, the GPU (graphical processing unit) housed inside its silicon shell is reportedly much more powerful than the one boasted by current-generation A5 SoC (system on a chip) used in the iPhone 4S and the iPad 2.
In addition to these two major advancements, a third enhancement is expected to occur on the camera side. Particularly on the back of the device, where Apple is reporting installing a 5 megapixel image sensor - more than enough for the small amount of photos people usually take with such a big device.
