    • public space distractions location? designing for mobile meant understanding the ‘mobile context’ limited aention glanceable? one hand tiny screen tedious input personal http://www.flickr.com/photos/oimax/3800475934
    • ...long day only one hour leftoh no...forgot to go to the bank need a quick break ...its impact on motivation http://www.flickr.com/photos/7802947@N02/5547816310
    • playing a game finding a bank nearby sending a textchecking the time of the next bus ...and on behaviour http://www.flickr.com/photos/7802947@N02/5547816310
    • so mobile design guidelines, went something like this...
    • “ Context is King: circumstances or conditions that surround a person, place or thing. Content is of little value if it does not address the context of where you are. - Cameron Moll, SXSW, 2007 http://www.flickr.com/photos/webtreatsetc/4860505549/
    • “ Google (2007) breaks down mobile users into three behaviour groups: A. "Repetitive now" B. "Bored now" C. "Urgent now" http://www.flickr.com/photos/webtreatsetc/4860505549/
    • “ Mobile user: typically on the go in an unpredictable environment, interested in quick glanceable information, focused on discrete individual tasks, is often distracted. - Joe Marini @ MIX 2010 http://www.flickr.com/photos/webtreatsetc/4860505549/
    • lately however,we have a problem... http://www.flickr.com/photos/barkbud/4914492619
    • cues and guidelines that were important logical just a fewyears months ago are still useful...but no longer reliable
    • statements such as these are becoming far more common
    • “ i love it! nice and clean look, easy to navigate and easy to read. well done! but...can you put a bit more news on there?Source: Comments from readers regarding The Guardian’s new mobile web site http://www.flickr.com/photos/webtreatsetc/4860505549/
    • “ There should be a text only version of the (desktop) site for those of us who dont like the business of the main site.Source: User talking about his habit of using the mobile Guardian site on his PC http://www.flickr.com/photos/webtreatsetc/4860505549/
    • “ ...mobile users want to see our menu, hours, and delivery number...(but)...desktop users definitely want to see this one megabyte PNG of somebody smiling at a salad. ...for fun, Google “Women Laughing Alone With Salad”Source: SitePoint Podcast: Responsive web design with Jeremy Keith http://www.flickr.com/photos/webtreatsetc/4860505549/
    • “ I’m definitely moving, I’m in a car. I’m going to look at your website. This doesn’t mean my intent is to find an address, or quickly use a news site... Context can’t predict the way a user is going to use the site. Mind reading is no way to base fundamental content decisions.Source: Mark Kirby, The mobile context http://www.flickr.com/photos/webtreatsetc/4860505549/
