Showcase: Apple Store

Category: Showcase

In one of our presentations, Ben and I show the Apple Store as one example shopping cart. The “shopping cart” use case is an obvious choice for some simple ajaxian additions, such as getting rid of the “recalculate my cart” button. Why not do it on the fly?

When we both met Duncan Orchard at the Ajax Summit, and found out he had moved to Apple, we realised that the Store would get updated soon, and it has happened.

If you go to the Store now and pick a computer say, go ahead and change things via drop down. Then you will see the fade technique showing you the areas in the cart that have changed, including the amount.

A nice, simple, subtle, change.

Yeah, isn’t this cool? I discovered by accident while configuring my “dream” mac… It’s like thinking about chocolate while on “Survivor”– you know it ain’t going to happen, but you do it anyway. Hey, a guy can dream, can’t he?

Well I blogged about it, and found your post via the Google blog search (which did OK). When did they do this? Today? I haven’t seen this on any other major PC manufacturer’s site, although I rarely window shop at, say, Gateway ;)
