Some great video of the current construction progress at the Apple Campus 2 site. Apple certainly isn’t wasting any time here. The size of this thing is just amazing. The “raised” circular area will be the courtyard in the middle of the building and will actually be the ground level. The area around it will eventually be sub-ground level floors and parking.
Did you know that 80% of you (if you’re in the U.S.) will have a BBQ or picnic today, where you will help consume over 150 million hot dogs? Shocking. I mean, who eats hot dogs when they’re not at a sporting event?
Happy Independence Day!

Extensis recently revealed the list of top 10 web fonts used in 2013. According to data collected from the professional web font service WebINK, designers and developers used Myriad Pro most often for their projects, a position it also held in 2012.
