Apple.com redesign wins .Net ‘redesign of the year’ award

Apple Store Online“Apple’s redesigned website took a prestigious .Net Award this year, along with another site – WillItBlend, which demonstrated how to turn an iPhone into pulp,” Jonny Evans reports for Macworld UK.

“Apple took the award for ‘Best Redesign of the Year,’ beating the Manchester United, New York Times, Waterstones and Guardian Unlimited websites for the privilege,” Evans reports.

“MySpace took the ‘infamy’ award for ‘eyeball-bleeding bad design.’ Runners-up in this category included Internet Explorer, Microsoft, Windows Vista and Amazon,” Evans reports.

  1. “Runners-up in this category included Internet Explorer, Microsoft, Windows Vista and Amazon.”

    Misery attracts companies.

    It’s an indirect connection. Dot net magazine is published by Future Publishing Limited. 30 Monmouth Street, Bath, BA1 2BW.

  2. It’s not the NY Mets.
    Manchester United have been declared the world’s richest club once more, pipping Spanish giants Real Madrid by just 12 euros.
    Although Madrid laid claim to the honour for a couple of years, United officials believe their gross revenue of £245million in the year to June 2007 just exceeds that of Real if average conversion rates during the 12-month period in question are used.
    While the argument may be viewed as semantic by some, it means a lot to the clubs involved at a time when the battle for hearts and minds of fans and sponsors across the world is gathering pace.

    United’s current fan-base has been estimated at 333 million, with chief executive David Gill believing the number of active supporters hovers around the 139 million mark – of whom 83 million are based in Asia.

  3. Go Man U.?

    Isn’t soccer* the game European women invented so they would have something to do while their men cooked?

    *football for those outside the U.S.

    Frankly I was just at the Apple site and I got lost. What a calamitous mish-mash and hodgepodge of non-intuitive human interface design. It’s a bad neighborhood. I ask that you MAC lemmings borrow a Dell running Vista and bask in the warm glow of Dell’s beautifully designed web pages in Internet Explorer. I could spend hours there.

    Your potential. Our passion.™

    Zune Tang! The first bit of common sense from you! Ever!

    I have tried to watch it dozens of times. Girlfriends kids mostly. That’s the only reason.
