comment Determine whether photo was edited or not
BTW if they added a simple disclaimer "colors simulated" or "simulated" or something to the image it would cease to be dishonest, though it may still be unprofessional ;)

In my view this practice is dishonest, lazy and unprofessional. It's dishonest because it's not really how the product will look - you can't perfectly simulate color and lighting with a simple photoshop. It's unprofessional because you can tell it's fake - if you didn't see the bad edging then you'd see that it's the same pose. Can you imagine a professional company like Victoria's Secret doing this? I can accept stores that do this when they offer "design your own" products, such as your own t-shirt design - because the product doesn't actually exist yet so you are only seeing a rendering.

comment What font does Apple use for its “light” text?
I think that font is designed for Japanese (eg Japanese iOS users?). I believe the sample is Myriad.

That sample is definitely Myriad and not Lucida Grande. I think your tool has failed to pick up on the specific headline font, and is just reporting what their website uses for body text. Maybe it's because they are using an image replacement trick?

comment Is it essential to type “WWW” when our design contains URL, or is it a matter of taste by now?
I mean, apple.com and microsoft.com etc still run a web server on the A record for their domain, in order for that redirect to work. Since all it does is redirect it doesn't have to do much work, but it shows they have no problem running a web server task on the machine(s) that their A record(s) point to. Their decision to redirect to "www" is more likely to just be a marketing decision, which is fine, and redirecting from the non-www version is a very appropriate choice in that situation.

but it does not have one for HTTP servers so we are stuck with using an actual subdomain to tell the world "this is for a website" why do you need to though? Just responding on port 80 is enough. Your A record for the domain can just point to your web server - unless you are wanting different services to point to different addresses (such as web and ... pop3?) in which case you are still not forced to exclusively use "www" for web - you can use subdomains for the other services, or even different domains. Users often leave off "www", you don't want your website to fail when they do.
