  • Apple debuts redesigned online store with dedicated 'Store' tab

    Why does the content always align with the left side of the top menu? Looks pretty stupid at anything wider than 1024 pixels...

     
    What you're seeing is a very common design pattern -- a centered content column. But in this case the "cards" scroll horizontally, so they continue to the right. Or the left:




    You can find this design pattern everywhere. Like on this very website:



    You'd think they'd have tried looking tab their own website on their own Pro Display XDR, in which case they'd have seen how weird it looks.
    How do you mean weird? Countless websites have a centered content column. Like AI's homepage. 

    And Yahoo:



    And Amazon:



    And CNN:



    And MacRumors:




    ...it's not weird. It's an extremely common design pattern that's over a decade old. 

    Have you never maximized your browser on any popular website before? Very confused how you folks think this is new or unique to Apple. The only difference is Apple's Store page has "cards" that scroll horizontally across the width...but it's the same centered column:


    You're asking me what's weird and then highlighting exactly what's weird?  The horizontal scrolling sections sticking out of the sides of a central focus is precisely what's weird.  

    Apple should gradient those carousels out, or balance them with a background in some way.  Looks silly otherwise, like someone forgot to finish the job.
    It isn’t. Once you start scrolling them they move all the way to the edge of the browser. 

    I’ve really never seen such shrieking violets butthurt about web design.
    I disagree.  Not butthurt, just disagree, and think it looks weird and incomplete.  Descending to insults so quickly?

  • Apple's HomePod, HomePod mini 'largely absent' in smart speaker market

    MacPro said:
    Cheap, low quality often wins out in certain markets, look at VHS history.  Perhaps they shouldn't be in the same category in the first place.  HomePods are genuine music speakers which can hardly be said for the Amazon speakers.
    If you can play music out of it then it's definitely a speaker.
