Have you noticed?

Earlier this week I pulled up Apple.com to check out the cool stuff from Macworld.

Imagine my shock when I saw that the page was **not** formatted for a 1024×768 square display. Oh no, it was formatted wide-screen. Maybe because I was on the Mac? Maybe because they have decided that it is time.

The store is still the same. It would seem that only the main and products pages are this way.

Is it time? Are widescreen displays prevalent enough to start designing sites for them? Or, do you think that are using user-agents tricks on the backend?
