Great pics! More please.

NeXT was made for the movies. No wonder due to the influence of the "other" Steve-company of that time... Smile

Another NeXT sighting, this time from altitude. You'll need to install Google Earth (free) to view for yourself. Click on the image below after installation.

Does anybody have any idea of the history of both buildings before and after NeXT occupied and then left them?, I think Fremont was purpose built, from what I remember of various books I read about Steve, NeXT & Apple, I think the HQ may have been as well.

I think the manufacturing plant probably went when NeXT stopped HW production in 93, but what about the HQ, did NeXT leave right after Apple bought them or did they hang on there for a bit.

Who in terms of compaines occupies them now, anybody we might know?

Here is a strange NeXT sighting I made while searching the web:



It is from http://homepage3.nifty.com/seed_kun/

I don't know exactly what's going on, but she may be working on her Cube.

I havenít verified it, but I think the Paula Abdul video is this one (the 1989 remake):

The copy of the video I have is pretty low quality but it briefly shows the camera panning past a cube. I'll get a screenshot of it if I can locate a better quality video.

I think that picture is one of the "OS-Tan"s, a series of platform mascots that were(and still are) a big fad among amaetur Japanese cartoonists. Didn't know they had one for NeXT, though- nice discovery!
