    I'm very curious to know how long the battery life last there :)

    I still don't understand why Apple makes websites only for desktops (maybe iPads, too...)

      And still uses images for most of their headings and other text :)

      The supposed rationale is that you get the desktop web experience on their mobile devices.

        Yeah, but that was valid when the iPhone came out, when there weren't even any apps available. Not in 2014. I know you're not disagreeing with me, I'm just stating stuff ;)

      if they delivered a good experience on mobile web, it'd undermine their business goal of convincing users to download apps for "a better experience" (and Apple's profit).

    Very nice but wish that they had done something with their standard menu bar to suit the page

    The site looks amazing, but the scrolling performance on my rMBP 2.6 with 16GB RAM is terrible in Chrome. I'm not really a fan of making a JavaScript heavy site that looks amazing and performs terrible. That being said, in Safari it works great.

    I wonder why they used images for heading text and quotes. A rational choice for making the page load faster or just plain laziness?

      Probably for better quality and control of text flow across browsers. I don't think it's laziness thing, since new images need to be created for different languages.

      Definitely not laziness. They added all those title text content in alt tag

    There's another one here which also has lots of nice little touches: http://www.apple.com/your-verse/new-depths/

    Man that was a great experience, everything from the tracking height on the side, to the topographical background behind the summit piece to the sliding oxygen lung level. Great Job, kinda wish that nav bar was hidden though.

    This is really nice. Does anyone know what team is responsible for this? Internal at Apple or Chiat/Day?
