So, they've updated the Apple Store. And in addition to new
PowerBooks and Dual dual-core G5s, there's a bit of AJAX going on.

I was shopping for a new PowerBook (got a 1.25Ghz I need to get rid
of if anyone's interested) and as I upgraded the HD to 120G, I
noticed something going on in the top right corner - there was a JS
fade technique to call my attention to the updated list of features
(new HD size) and updated total of my shopping cart.

I thought it might be a fluke, or maybe the page just reloaded really
fast. So, I started playing with the upgrade options to see if it was
AJAX. And wouldn't you know it - it was.

v.nice

Cheers!

That's a .swf file according to the source code. Unless I'm missing
something.

Apple's been doing a lot AJAX-wise to up the look and feel of their site of
late.

The new product site for Aperture is another good example, especially the
gallery section:
