Jony Ive, celebrul vicepresedinte care conduce echipa de design a companiei Apple, tocmai si-a achizitionat o casa in valoare de 17 milioane de dolari pe “costa de aur” a orasului San Franscico. Casa este situata intr-unul dintre cartierele exclusiviste si a fost construita in anul 1927, insa desigur ca a fost modernizata intre timp. Avand 6 dormitoare, 8 bai si jumatate, plus 2217 m², casa este impresionanta, insa la fel de impresionanta este si privelistea. Ive are 45 de ani este angajat al Apple inca din anul 1996 si are actiuni in valoare de peste 100 de milioane de dolari, deci isi permite un mic rasfat, mai ales ca Apple o duce din ce in ce mai bine.
