    Very interesting stuff. Now you’re making me reconsider the design of every website I own! Ack! That’s a good thing though, I suppose.

    I can understand why the marketer/dev/whoever that made that site made the mistakes they did though. They likely think the text is the unimportant part of the content that no one will be interested in and wanted to wow them with pictures. I’ve thought similar things myself, but as Flint said “people buy products from people, not from websites”, and the text is what helps remind us that the website is run by a person and isn’t just some faceless entity.
