Adaptive Design vs. Responsive Web Design: RWD Pundits Come Full Circle

Luca Passani, CTO @ScientiaMobile, January 2017

I had not blogged for some time, but listening to a conversation that involved Ethan Marcotte and Karen McGrane the other day inspired me to hit the company web log with a new post. The reason for this is because I heard something that I consider big. Very big.

Ethan and Karen are two venerable authorities when it comes to the topic of Responsive Web Design (RWD). Plus, they have real experience with web projects, including mobile web, for large enterprises. This is why, when they speak, taking notice is often a good idea. The conversation on the status of RWD was no exception, because there was a point made by Karen, which Ethan subscribed to, that Adaptive Design is not really defined the way a lot of people say it is.

Before I get to the point, let me revisit what Adaptive Design means to many and how it relates to RWD.

For most authors who have embraced Responsive, Adaptive Design is the evolution of Progressive Enhancement and Mobile First. The adoption of those two philosophies, augmented with the ability to address a set of form factors through Media Queries and breakpoints, is the basis for what they call Adaptive Design. Media Queries are essentially conditional CSS rules that can be evaluated (client-side) based on media features, such as certain minimal screen-size intervals (the breakpoints) in order to tailor the UX for users of smartphones, tablets, and desktops.

Using Smartphone Price in E-Commerce and Advertising

WURFL is adding more features, accuracy, and speed to their WURFL device intelligence solutions. Currently, we have a new WURFL capability in beta that provides the price of the device at date of the of device release. This new capability is named “Release_MSRP” (Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price). We would like selected customers to engage in a beta trial and share their findings back with us.price-of-phone

How E-Commerce and Advertising Can Use the Price of a Device

E-commerce and advertising companies can benefit from linking indicators of willingness to buy (or price elasticity) to the products they are selling. The price of a user’s smartphone or tablet is a strong indicator of the relative wealth and willingness to spend money on an item. MSRP allows them to target ads or products in real time. Innovative companies can act on this willingness to buy in real-time, gauging their e-commerce customers’ wallets and utilizing price discrimination tactics to increase revenue. Likewise, they can link this willingness to spend to other demographic and technographic indicators that an advertiser or e-commerce player might have in their targeted buyer persona.
