Context is king and determines content.

Always remember when designing, it’s about designing for people as you don’t get to decide what device someone has or from where they will be accessing your site – they do!

_Responsive design is also not just about making everything fit.
A very important aspect of responsive design which is all too often overlooked is context: you need to take into consideration how and from where the user will be accessing your site and tailor the experience and the content to those situations. For example, a desktop user accessing your site is likely sitting at a desk or on the couch with a laptop whereas your mobile user could be anywhere doing anything._

The report estimated that ozone from wood-based energy to meet the European Union's 2020 goal would cause nearly 1,400 premature deaths a year, costing society $7.1 billion.
The European plan would also would reduce the annual value of wheat and maize production by $1.5 billion since ozone impairs crop growth, the study added.*

Let’s face it, not only are we all consumers but we’re also all marketers. We sell ourselves at work, we sell ourselves in our social groups, and we sell our wares in the marketplace.

Damn awesome, control your lightbulb colour directly from your iOS device.

"If you find a scene you really like, go to the settings, and assign it an “on” or “off” time. For instance, you can switch a particular scene on at 6 p.m., when you’re walking in the door from work. Or, set a nice, low light in the upstairs bathroom to turn on first thing in the morning. You can also group and ungroup clusters of lights at once."

"While developers dream of 'write once run everywhere' the fragmented support for and limited APIs within HTML5 make this impossible.  In fact, we predict the hybrid app is the future. Existing business models are protected, differentiation among and within ecosystems remains intact, and consumption continues unabated. The end result is the continued dominance of iOS,... more »

Real Life Minority Report
#jealous   #ux   #future  

Mind-blowing hand-controlled computing room from Oblong Industries. This is worth the watch.

The guy behind it was the tech mind behind Minority Report. Yet another piece of that future arrives here.

This is cool stuff. John Underkoffler, chief scientist, Oblong Industries, was the tech advice behind the film "Minority Report" and then he built his own company to make that science fiction real. Here he shows me his latest work which is, indeed, mind blowing. This is part I, in Part II, you'll see a new conference room that Oblong has built using these technologies.

Responsive webdesign or not? The controversy is brewing!

Some takeaways from this article:
-Evaluate your consumer behaviour. What would they be looking for when using mobile?
-Would you need channel/device specific content? e.g. Mobile users are more interested in product x & y.
-A good responsive web design may be a more costly one time investment but save more time on keeping your site updated. It may be a good temporary solution to start off with, but not always the best long term solution.
-How much does page load speed mean to your users? Some reports indicate up to six times faster load of separate mobile web sites.

“The problem is that companies don’t have a way to create and deploy custom mobile content that works across the ever-expanding array of mobile phones in a way that is fast, cost effective, and doesn’t require coding knowledge, This is why mobile has remained a technical part of companies’ under the responsibility of IT opposed to a tool that is consistently used by marketing personnel to serve and acquire customers.

The Internet Industrial Revolution Has Begun

Have the path to success been shortened and made easier with the uproar of DIY manufacturing, Open source software and across the world Outsourcing?

The real question is if the competition will be harder because of the lower barrier to enter these new markets. How can you excel more than the others?

I wonder if the marketplace will be filled with those "average" ones who had some idea but werent really motivated, the ones without the strong passion and enthusiasm for excellence.
If you decide to jump on this train, my advice to you is: Differentiate, differentiate, differentiate.

Anyhow I think you should read the well written piece by +Chris Anderson at:
