Apple has filed for a permit to re-double its 412,000 square-foot existing data center cluster in Reno, Nevada. The site has always had the possibility of expansion available to it, but the new filing indicates that Apple plans to build yet another data center alongside the existing two of roughly similar size. The current facility, which has been online for some time but is not yet listed as officially finished, was called "Project Mills" during construction. The new adjacent site will be known as "Project Huckleberry."
The Universal movie about Steve Jobs is continuing its principle photography, and over the weekend filmed scenes revolving around the May 6, 1998 original iMac unveiling. One of three key scenes in the film that cover product launches, the film used extras to show attendees of the keynote from 1998 holding signs and banners welcoming back Steve Jobs, and others to film interior scenes of the original presentation.
Continuing its trend of green energy utility, Apple is reportedly planning to build out a 20MW solar array adjacent to its upcoming Reno, Nevada data center. The new system will include both solar panels and mirrored concentrators on the 137-acre site to increase the power density at the location.

Instagram now supporting multiple accounts
As reported earlier, Instagram has formally announced that it will roll out support for multiple accounts (up to five) in it's iOS app with an update that will bring the program to version 7.1.5. The feature has been one of the main attractions of third-party Instagram clients, but it is unclear if users must seek out an "add account" preference in the app, and some users are reporting that the ability to add accounts has not yet been added. The company says notifications "depend on when you last logged in, and the number of devices that are logged into that account," suggesting not all notifications across accounts will appear when logged into a given one. http://bit.ly/1moh95p

View-Master VR device in Apple Store
Apple has started to sell a Google Cardboard-style VR headset modeled on a classic Mattel toy. Initially launched early last year, the View-Master Virtual Reality Starter Pack for $30 is designed to use an iPhone as a display, with a Preview Reel and lever system mimicking the toy's switching between images to take users between different VR apps and scenes. http://bit.ly/1RhJW8y
