    Congratulation Jordan, you've just been nominated for the most useful comment of the year.

    You could've said something about the announcement, how it feels the more cohesive compared to the others. Easier to understand what it is, it's value proposition and why you would want it. It looks like Apple is spending a fortune funding exclusive games. It makes the Google’s Stadia thing from last week look much smaller. Interesting is how much Apple emphasize the Mac and Apple TV.

    But yeah, that Notify Me button..

      While I agree with you that his comment is short on explaining the why behind "Bleh." I must point that the post was filed under "Site Design" category, usually used to gain critique of the website more than elaborate on business value and proposition.

      From the page design perspective, I think it looks great, but the performance is terrible. Multiple video backgrounds are taking so much processing power that unless you scroll really slow, the page is constantly glitching. If I try scrolling up and down the page, it becomes a mess. That's for me at least, maybe on Tim's iMac Pro it goes smooth as butter. And I also dislike the red color choice for "Notify me" button, I think the white color button, as on Apple TV+ page, would be more settle choice.

      I love the Apple Card page design though, I think it's a really well balance of interactive elements, text, and images.

        But design ties very much with value proposition, business strategy and how customers perceive the brand. It’s the result of all those complex things, especially for big brands. Focusing on just the execution is short sighted and honestly not very valuable.

        My point is the conversation cannot be just on deliverables. Btw in my opinion that Notify Me button in an accent colour is not really out of context considering the target audience, gamers.

      Ooooh, Stefano, you were this close to not being a condescending asshat. Bummer.

      Looks to be around zero AAA titles in their list though, casual gamers look to be their only demographic. Sounds boring.

      How are any of those observations more valid than the original?
