“There is little chance that meteorologists can solve the mysteries of weather until they gain an understanding of the mutual attraction of rain and weekends.”
It feels like just about every Friday we mention what a crazy and exciting week it has been here at FiddleFly. Maybe we’re slipping slowly into lunacy, or maybe that is just the plight of the startup business in a market that is exploding faster than any we’ve ever seen. Either way, as usual it’s time to take a look back at some of the stories that had our eyes peeled and our heads spinning from the week past.
- Some of the most insightful and important mobile web developments tend to come out of the many conferences and tech festivals and this week the mecca for mobile web news was the Breaking Development Conference that was held in Orlando. If you haven’t been, start following #bdconf on Twitter where you’ll find incredible stuff like this absolutely awesome presentation from Stephanie Rieger about web past and future.
- While we believe that apps and mobile sites need to coexist for there to be true mobile harmony, we always appreciate a good debate and we especially appreciate a well thought out argument that addresses both parties. That’s exactly what we found this week from Keith Teare in his article “The Mobile Paradox”.
- More good stuff from BDConf in the form of two more awesome (and hilarious) presentations. The first on Mobile Web and The Enterprise from Matt Menzer, and the second on the hazards of mobile design from Brian Leroux.
- This week a big topic in the mobile world was the future of mobile commerce, specifically the push towards turning smartphones into digital wallets. We talked a little about Barclay’s new pay tag for cell phones, and we also came across some great articles like this one about the future of mobile money.
- Sometimes new advances in technology have the strange ability to mesmerize and terrify all at the same time. This was one of those cases. We give you: Smartphones That Can See Through Walls.
That’s not nearly all, but it shall have to do for now as we have a beautiful Friday to enjoy. Go forth fiddle friends and enjoy your weekend. Keep your eyes peeled for some new developments on our website (wink wink) next week and be sure to keep in touch by finding us on Twitter @fiddlefly, Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, and Pinterest.
