Khoi Vinh: Publishers Should Be Developing for the Mobile Web Instead of Making Replica Apps | Betabeat — News, gossip and intel from Silicon Alley 2.0.
"For this week’s cover story about Condé Nast’s struggle developing for the iPad, Betabeat had the opportunity to talk to Khoi Vinh…On his widely-read design blog, Subtraction, Mr. Vinh has repeatedly expressed his skepticism toward publishers like Condé Nast and Hearst and software companies like Adobe for thinking that what iPad readers want is a magazine replica app that takes a print-centric approach to tablet design. But we didn’t get the chance to include some really interesting predictions Mr. Vinh made about the direction he thinks consuming content on the iPad is heading (in short: back to the browser) and what readers really want.

Mr. Vinh, who recently released a book on web design, seem to have contracted that start-up fever making its way around the city and is currently working in stealth mode on an app of his own. He compared the bells-and-whistles of the current magazine app rush to the CD-ROM bubble and advised publishers to think more like Netflix."

Yiibu - About this site...
"The site is designed using the ‘mobile first’ principle. Also incorporated are elements of responsive design.

The base content and default presentation are mobile, and optimized for the very simplest devices first. We've defined this as 'basic' support.

Devices with small screens and media query support are served an enhanced layout—and occasionally—more complex content. We've called this 'mobile'.

Finally, the layout and content are enhanced to reflect the 'desktop' context.

On the first visit, the server checks for a 'properties' cookie containing specific browser 'feature support' results (obtained from tests carried out by a little bit of JavaScript). Devices that don't supply a 'properties' cookie, or have JavaScript disabled are always served the basic version of the site."

LukeW | Mobile First
"More often than not, the mobile experience for a Web application or site is designed and built after the PC version is complete. Here's three reasons why Web applications should be designed for mobile first instead."

Stop! You are doing mobile wrong! | Metal Toad Media
"For as long as mobile sites have been around the conventional wisdom has been: build your website first and then create a mobile site as an add-on; creating a distilled, streamlined version of the desktop site. This makes sense, no? A few weeks ago I discovered that we've been doing it wrong*. Here's why:

Mobile devices will outpace traditional computers.
Devices with fewer capabilities need to be the default.
There is no mobile…"
