Many have joked about it over the years, but it seems that Apple have finally decided to put their money where their mouth is. For an as of yet undisclosed sum, Apple CEO Tim Cook – who took on the position when Steve Jobs resigned on the 24th of August 2011 due to health reasons – has stated that the corporation intends to project their iconic corporate logo onto the moon’s surface. He said:
“Here at Apple we’ve always been focused on the future, and what better way to show this than by expanding into space?”
When questioned as to whether the stunt was merely a marketing ploy in order to ensure that Apple would be the first Earth brand that any passing extraterrestrial would be aware of, Cook gave a knowing smile and refused to comment further.
The specifications of the iProjector, still firmly in its prototype phase, are yet to be publicly released.
