You know what would be great right about now? A hill on which to throw myself and hysterically weep.
Sadly, it won’t be Apple’s Hill, a giant mound of dirt at the company’s fancy new campus in Cupertino. But all good things must come to an end, and as some new drone footage shows, the time has finally come for Hill.
The pile of mud, which Vogue scribe Rob Haskell once described—in all seriousness, allegedly—as “Giza brought to Cupertino, as if that ancient triumph of human hands had decided to seek an audience with the high priests of technology,” is no longer. The majestic material was used to landscape the campus, which will reportedly house thousands of employees and feature cafés, a parking garage, an auditorium, and an R&D facility.
Alas, Apple didn’t die on its Hill, but decided to kill it instead. Ever the innovator, that Apple.
