A design of Apple's new HQ
Apple offered a revised proposal in September that pushed the start of construction to 2014 and the finished product to mid-2016

Apple's new spaceship-looking headquarters that will be built in Cupertino, California is having a slight construction delay.

After former Apple CEO Steve Jobs submitted the plan to city council in June 2011, the plan was to get approval in early 2013 and complete the project in 2015. However, Apple offered a revised proposal in September that pushed the start of construction to 2014 and the finished product to mid-2016. 

Cupertino City Manager David Brandt added that Apple could possibly start in 2013, but everything from approval to potential legal troubles from residents would have to go completely smoothly.

Another issue that may cause delay is that Apple may not complete its environmental report until June 2013. 

Apple's other changes to the revision include building a new structure for housing utility equipment as well as employee parking spots; removing a footbridge over a creek on the property, and moving a 1,000-seat auditorium further away from a nearby road. 

Apple's new headquarters is expected to be 176 acres, with the main building alone accounting for 2.8 million square feet. The structure is a circular, glass dome that resembles a spaceship. At its size, it will be one of the largest buildings in the world. 

Apple is looking to plant 7,000 trees on the property and employ 14,200 workers.

Satire: noun
the use of humor, irony, exaggeration, or ridicule to expose and criticize people's stupidity or vices (in this case weasel whining about progress and success).

Given the problems the US economy is facing I find such whining about some of the few areas in which it is a world beater to be insufferable.

Except, once again, your "humor", isn't humorous. In that messed up head of yours it may be, but in the real world, it's not. You should quit trying to be a comedian, you fail at it.
