    I had a chance to read this blog post today about the Q3 2012 release:

    http://blogs.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/posts/12-10-18/rock-n-roll-with-telerik-s-asp-net-ajax-q3-2012-release.aspx?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+AspnetAjaxTeamsFeed+%28ASP.NET+AJAX+Team%27s+Feed%29&utm_content=My+Yahoo

    The blogger was right. I checked out your latest demo page and I was surprised... It looks really great! If I could hang it on my wall, it would undoubtedly add to the beauty of my room. However, I am not an art gallery owner. I am a software developer. And despite their many aesthetic qualities, your new demo pages are a step backwards in UI design. Why do I have to click and scroll so much to view what I want? Why is everything SO BIG?

    Its almost as if the marketing department at Telerik has completely taken control over the operation. Everything has to be a selling point.

    If you want to make your integration examples primarily a sales resouce, then by all means, spruce them up. But your demo pages are supopsed to be primarily a technical resource. And in that, you should be striving to make them better for developers, not for marketers.

    In reference to the new demo pages, the blogger said  "we worked hard to make them more user- and mobile-friendly".

    She got it half right. I guess the next time I find myself coding on my iPad and need to take a look at a Telerik demo.. I'll be all set.

    Hello Albert,

    Thank you for the nice words!!!

    I am happy you hear you liked our new demo application. Having the feedback of the users so far, we will probably decrease the font size for the code viewer and hopefully you will not need to scroll and click so much. Should you have other suggestions for improvements, do let me know.

    All the best,
    Iana Tsolova
