The Mad World Of Set Top Boxes – Part 2

The remote is already in your pocket

At IBC 2013 in Amsterdam, there are a small but significant number of exhibitors focused on remote controls. The most significant innovation is the use of Bluetooth to replace infrared and placing a microphone into the control to enable voice control of the TV and set top box. Some vendors have also turned the control into a pointing device such that it can be used to move an on screen cursor. Other than these, the remote control doesn't look like its set to change.

The Mad World Of Set Top Boxes – Part 1

Why pretend to be a mobile phone?

The number of vendors large and small promoting web enabled set top boxes will not escape the attention of those attending the IBC show in Amsterdam 2013. Manufacturers are all showing web browser enabled devices. Most of the operating systems and related browser software comes from the mobile world with Android by far and away the most popular operating system coupled with the Chrome Mobile browser.

Ad:Tech London 2013

A Poor Mobile Web Experience

Today's the first day of Ad:Tech London 2013, “The Event for Digital Marketing”. With 7.6% of web traffic coming from Tablets, and 23% from mobile devices globally in August 2013, the organisers dmgevents should know that mobile is important to web marketing. I was therefore more than a little surprised to receive the following home page, and floor plan when I accessed the events web site on a mobile phone.

Mobile Device Detection Common Factor in Top Ranking News Publishers

I've just received a fantastic piece of marketing from EpiServer titled "What Consumers Want From Digital News Publishers". The white paper benchmarks 12 of the UKs leading news publishers, according to the ABCs: National dailies, March 2013, against a set of criteria, including web site mobile performance, for iPhone, iPad and Android devices.

I was interested to find out how many of the top performing web sites used server side device detection techniques. Here's my quick and dirty findings.
