Comparing the UK and Australian web browsing market

Author: Anonym

The early part of July saw England and Australia resume hostilities in The Ashes – the most hotly contested long form competition in global Cricket. Whilst the sport, never mind this particular contest, is well-known but rarely understood outside the countries where it is played, the competition remains the fiercest rivalry in the game’s history.

You don’t have to be rich to iOS

(but it helps)

Author: Anonym

The battle between iOS and Android is usually played out in the battlefield of the high street, where the two key mobile operating systems compete for sales. The relative performance of each operating system can therefore fluctuate greatly: the month after a new iPhone launch iOS devices tend to do very well and the same is true when a new Android phone is launched or a price drop takes place.

The question we asked ourselves at 51Degrees.com was what does the battle look like out in the real world.

Apple Standalone on Device Detection

Exposing the crippling solution used to detect iPhone and iPad models

Device vendors as varied as the mighty Samsung, to brands like Pantech and Micromax all recognise the importance of identifying different device models when accessing web sites. However, Apple do not fully support this approach.

Some device detection solutions have tried to address the problem by artificially stressing the iPhone or iPad to determine how quickly its processor can complete iterative tasks. Understanding how the device performs under stress provides an indication as to the CPU available and therefore the model of the device. The approach can yield more information but ironically at the expense of user experience as the page load time increases and the battery is drained more rapidly.

If every web site were to stress iPhones and iPads to gain model information the web would slow down for Apple users. This isn’t in Apple’s interest. However, if Apple make a simple change the problem can be avoided.
