Did Apple get an earful (OTR) in the UK?

Oh, for the love... Here's the clicky. CNET article

The code is still there on my end. Cached
somewhere along the route from Apple to me?
In any case, www.apple.co.uk now (as before)
requires me to scroll down to see any text
below the images.

I suspect that they heard the rumblings from various articles online

and changed the code on the site to be on the safe side.

I doubt the court had to do anything, or we would have
probably heard about it, and Apple would probably be rather
singed.

Dunno if it was OTR or they just read the news. They're pulling the
resize code from pages around the world with not much sense
that I can see. It's now gone from the generic Latin America page
but is still there for Mexico. It's gone from UK, FR, ES, DE, RU, but is
still there for Scandinavia, PL, EE. It seems to be gone from most
of Asia/Oceania.

However there is still device/monitor size detection code there,
apparently to "correctly" size the page for various mobile devices.
Also some countries are getting an iPad Retina ad which is taller
than the default picture, still forcing the navigation links below the fold.
The picture which shows on opening the home page was in bygone
times on autorotate. I'm not enough of a javascript guru to tell
if that is still happening.
