Designing The Non-Desktop Web - Responsive Design Resources - thanks @jamesmadson

A collection of resources for designing beyond the desktop. Curated by Cameron Moll, who thinks the web is the bee's knees.

Good-natured and nefarious critics alike will argue "non-desktop" is frivolous and unnecessary for describing what should really just be called the web. They're right. But for the sake of using a terse phrase that encapsulates mobile devices, tablets, and anything else internet-enabled that isn't a desktop computer — and that works well in a conference presentation title, to boot — non-desktop will have to do.

A Different Design: freelance web design - PURTY

I hate #netflix. I love #amazon.

It wasn't the change in pricing, or the decrease in service. It wasn't getting crappy scratched discs, and it wasn't the lack of anything really cool for streaming. Netflix simply doesn't work. At least it hasn't for the past month.

Every movie I've watched has stalled and failed to load. I get 1 minute in and think... oh, this time it will work. This time it won't... oops. Nevermind. THE DAMN THING HAS STOPPED AGAIN.

And now, the movie has magically SHRUNK! The screen size is 1/4 what it should be and I can see a timecode, language and some sort of ID number in the upper left of a mostly black screen.

And now I WANT TO WATCH THE FREAKING MOVIE. So you know what, I'll go to amazon, and I'll pay to watch the SAME MOVIE, cause it doesn't fail. I've yet to have a single problem with Amazon downloads or streaming. Same movie, within minutes, same network... perfect performance.

Notice who I'm NOT Talking about... Apple.

Berg's Little Printer churns out RSS feeds with a receipt and a smile -- Engadget - AH-MA-ZING

xui.js - a simple javascript library for building mobile web applications.

XUI was born in 2008 while the popular PhoneGap framework was being developed. It was created out of necessity for a solid DOM framework that understood the latency and initialization characteristics of the mobile web. Today most frameworks are still catching up to the mobile revolution, tacking on compatibility as an afterthought and, often, only for iOS.

XUI is the smallest framework that works across all of the devices in the mobile landscape. It does not try and dictate a page structure or widget paradigm. Instead, it uses the DOM and since most mobile applications consist of lists and buttons, we feel, HTML and CSS do a fine job of rendering.
