They probably spent less than 10% of that, these figures are hyped beyond belief and the cost includes marketing, new employees, new infrastructure etc etc.
One thing that I have noticed recently from these major retailers is that their sites are very minimal in design and content, for instance the home page has no products at all, just categories, whereas the smaller ecommerce sites go all out to display their latest products and offers.
There was a dearth of these niche themes, multi-themes are fine but it’s good to see specific themes again.
Tried dropbox, mega and gdrive had various problems with all of them, the only one I have never had problems with is opendrive, generous free space and very fast, syncing is very good in comparison with gdrive
I find it irritating when celebs jump on the bandwagon in order to generate some publicity. Just donate the damn money. Why is it people have to do things like sitting in a bath of beans in order to raise some money for charity but end up spending more money on the beans than they raised in doing so, I think it’s to make themselves feel better about giving and to say “look at me, I’m giving to charity”. God bless the people who donate to charity anonymously.
There are so many overcomplicated answers I am not surprised people are confused, but in my opinion (may be incorrect) but the answer my friend is blowing in the wind (what the hell does that mean anyway?) but user INTERFACE means the interface and user EXPERIENCE means the experience, or to put it another way; UI is what you use and UE is how much you enjoy doing it, actually that’s probably wrong, yes, let’s go back again to the INTERFACE (as a Verb) and EXPERIENCE (as a Noun), aren’t words wonderful ?

What ‘am I doing here? Anyway as you can see I must have the most outdated avatar ever (it’s so damn glossy), hopefully have a nicer one soon.
BTW I thought it was a trick request.
We have been in this situation in the past and as we use freelancers for the coding part (we’re designers) it left us with a very bad experience. Now we simply do not go into such situations, i.e. we do not maintain sites created by others, it may not seem the right thing to do and may lose us business but we are better off for it.
Eid Mubarak from me and my family to you and yours.
