Just a quick note here to announce that we’ve finally, after three years with the old design, had a chance to do some updates on the site. Besides the new look and feel, the page should load much quicker and look much better on small screens like the iPhone (and iPad!).
We’ve eliminated the news feeds along the left side but hope to make up for it with actively covering the interesting news stories and tweeting the ones that can be covered in 140 characters or less. We’ve also made the stock news a bigger part of the site because we know a lot of you not only follow Apple, you’ve invested as well.
We hope to be able to celebrate the site’s rebirth tomorrow by carrying a live feed of the tablet launch. We’re hoping to get video but might have to settle for audio only. Please spread the word and join us for that.
Big thanks to Jonny Evans and the rest of the 9to5mac crew for putting up with all of the trials lately.
Thanks to Jason and Alex at Think Simply Web Design & Development for all of their hard work on the redesign. If you need a reliable web developer (especially for Drupal) drop them a line.
I’m not sure how many of you have been with me/us for the past 3 years (we’re younger than the iPhone!) but the original site was designed pretty quickly by me while living overseas during my wife’s research fellowship. Since that time, I’ve been full time at work and part time here and Computerworld. Like a lot of you, I never really liked the design but I didn’t have time to fix it
