I know that mobile isn't everything - yet. It's about to be everything. Mobile is about to be all of computing, and if you go to emerging markets, it is basically all of computing. - Alex Russell
We've persistently failed users on mobile devices. ... Collectively as a community, we are not succeeding on mobile. - Alex Russell
Another worthwhile admission coming from a Doubleclick study indicates: on average, sites take a whopping 19000ms to load. In a quasi alarmist tone, this is talk is essentially centred around the
need necessity to design and develop for mobile performance.
The CPU that turns more power into heat, is the CPU that does more math. - Alex Russell
Alex moves on to explain the mobile phone's hardware architecture making a case that mobile performance is essentially a losing battle from day one - referencing a 2011 paper. He reminded us that heat dissipation is playing a very significant role in throttling - costing us as much as 15%. He further elaborates, referencing the mobile network conundrum and that 4G isn't really what it seems to be. Of course, Alex concludes his talk w/ a suite of solutions and tools by Google and how they support mobile peformance. A good watch.
