ESPN launches newly designed website

ESPN has launched a new iteration of its public website. This is not an April fool's joke. They did a great job in reaching every device and platform. It's not astounding that 61% of their user base originates from a mobile or tabular device. Key improvements include greater personalization capabilities, better up-to-the-minute social integration, and increased focus on video and media. I like the new cleaner, sleek, responsive design. Great job by the designers.

The Stack: Get These off my Digital Landscape

Some of these are realistic usability concerns. For example, propritary, funded features added to browsers for no reason, have a large distaste in my cyber heart. And although everyone seemingly is using mobile devices at work or while on the john, why do we need to make all views look like a mobile web experience. People still use desktop computers, including this programmer. Hey, why do we need file extensions... cause I said so!

Thanks to "The Stack" for some end of day ranting pleasure.

Responsive Vs. Adaptive Web Design

Main differences here are sizes vs. devices. I adhere to responsive design here at my day job. However, this site and other I create are based on adaptive design principles. They are both great ways to deliver content to users with little maintenance. But the nitty gritty suggests there are issues in performance, scalability, and delivery methods that make these two even more distinct. I left a few articles for you knuckle heads to read!
