It’s been many months in the making, but this evening we launched an entire overhaul of TheAppleBlog’s design. This redesign is part of an overhaul of the entire GigaOM network that started back in November.

TheAppleBlog joined GigaOM back in September 2008 but for the past 18 months we kept our pre-GigaOm design. This was the last step in fully integrating TheAppleBlog as part of the GigaOM family.

The new design helps us do a better job of featuring new content as well as letting you explore popular topics a lot more easily. In addition, we’ll be able to feature relevant content from around our network more easily.

At the end of the day, this redesign is about surfacing content for you and helping you interact with our little community more. There are a lot of intricacies and small features spread out around the site, so be sure to dig around. It’s definitely a dynamic new site with lots of extras that aren’t necessarily immediately obvious.

So have a look around and let us know what you think!

  1. Lookin’ good!

  2. Whatever man, it’s a blog. The majority of your visitors use readers so will never see your pretty updates.

    1. Fortunately you’re completely incorrect, but thanks for the comment! :)

    2. Ha ha, I’m guessing this comment came from a reader too. :)

    3. i can read the blog in my reader as well but i almost always choose to visit.

      great job guys, it looks great and you’ve given me another reason to visit the blog directly!

  3. I just love what you’ve done with the place. :)

  4. Very nice. Clean, perfectly readable, great line height. It will be a pleasure to visit. I stopped following you through RSS reader a month ago and was visiting the site daily — this will make all the more worthwhile.

    1. Thanks Aleksandar! Really glad you like it!

  5. No style sheet loading here, so it looks a bit naff. ;-)

  6. very nice !

  7. I love it! Very clean.
    Two things: The old typography of the Title way way better. Why Futura? And: Unfortunately the logo is way smaller than before – it’s very nice, why so small?

    1. I tend to agree with you. Unfortunately I had no control over that. :(

    I don’t like it. I liked the old version better.

    1. Sorry to hear that Howie. What aspects of the new design are you not caring for? And what about the old version do you like better?

  9. Love the new look.

  10. Not so enamored. I liked the old simple and clean layout, where as now there is too much information bombarding the visitor! – It doesn’t make me think of Apple, but Microsoft. Sorry.

    1. Re: The Microsoft reference…ouch. :)
