Point 28 : The images are delivered to view at 100% zoom - minimizing the amount of data downloaded. On a smaller screen, smaller images are loaded unlike the old site that always downloaded the full size image. Why deliver an image that is larger than the widest layout supported?
Point 29 : Presumably this was done to reduce the amount of data downloaded in one hit.
Point 10 : There is no more video then before its just given more prominence.
Point 1/11 : At the top of every page is a link to your local news - no need to scroll to the bottom of the page. For people in point 11, read I, there is no natural sequence.
Point 4 : The old site didn't fill the screen width either did it?
Point 5 : Clicking on the index name takes you to the detail page for that index?
Point 6: 'Share with BBC News' on the homepage links directly to HYS
THis blog isn't hidden any more than it ever has been. As far as I can see there is no more video on this site than the old one - it is presented with a greater prominence. Lots of people have access to WiFi on trains, in shops and at home or work even when the mobile signal is poor and would expect to watch video reports direct from the website.
