Cell phones started off really, really big. Then, they got smaller, in some cases much smaller. Now, it would seem that they’re getting much bigger again. The personal computers in our pockets may not get as large as the cell phone above, but they’re getting pretty large.
Responsive is the name of the game… for now. In all actuality, despite the hoopla over Google and others adoring responsive website design, it’s not as necessary as many think it to be.

If you couldn’t tell by the headline, I’ve grown pretty sick of these. Yes, we know. Samsung and Apple hate each other. They’re the two big dogs in the kennel. They own the smartphone market. They’re mortal enemies. Blah blah blah.
But wait! This infographic is actually pretty decent. It isn’t completely slanted in one direction or another. I subtly plays on the political spectrum with the red and blue motif. This is a little different than the other 62 Samsung vs Apple infographics built in the last 90 days. Read more

Responsive web design isn’t new. Most designers are well aware of the qualities that it brings to the table, making it to where websites can often render properly and completely on devices of all ranges. It can improve the mobile experience with deviating from the full-screen website and allows designers to maintain a steady aesthetic across all devices.

Technology is starting to really solve the problems associated with acquiring, storing, and saving energy. The automotive industry in particular is making strides as companies like Ford, Volvo, and Mercedes are all pushing the limits beyond the standard “hybrid” or “plugin” model.

Unless you either live in a place where the internet is not powerful enough to support online video or you’ve been living under a rock for the last couple of years, it’s clear that online videos have become a huge thing.

This infographic from Flimp Media breaks down the trends and shows us a glimpse of what we can expect in the future.
Phones have a big enough problem with battery life without the constant pinging that most of our social media apps do. Even when they’re just sitting there doing nothing, our phones are often busy getting our Facebook updates ready to present, seeing if there are any new direct messages on Twitter, and letting us know when our Google+ friend is about to have a birthday. It can be daunting.
