This presentation from the Online Information 2013 conference in London, uses the medium of Lolcat to present an overview of the various adaptation methods mobile websites use. Brand head-to-head comparisons include EasyJet vs Ryanair, and Apple vs Microsoft, and four way competitions in the news, charity, and retail sectors.
The presentation makes a data-driven case that pure Responsive Design, while marketed as a silver bullet and undeniably attractive enough as a development method to get its own textbooks, slows sites down and results in a poor user experience. It also presents evidence that detection of a user's hardware type presents useful actionable intelligence about the user before a byte is served.
