    Wow. Just wow.

    I know my Internet is slow (I have ADSL) but this site is so slow. When you profile this thing, you see why: http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/#!/cvIZOC/http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/server-cloud/AstonMartin/#fbid=n2Z0AAKcbsK

    The page size is 33.5mb... Some of the images are 1mb plus, a couple are almost 2mb. Then you have the the videos most of which around about 2mb, one of them is almost 6mb. If Microsoft used lazy loading on this thing, it would be substantially faster.

    This is a classic example of how to NOT follow a trend. It's pretty much parody level. Who approved this thing? I'm speechless. Scrolling this website is like trying to swim your way out of a tar pit or quicksand.

    Can this trend of turning websites into Powerpoint please end now? The whole scroll-jacking thing is getting tiresome, I just want to get some sleep.
