The impact of CSS on Mobile Phone

by David H
The article that I read this week talks about how cascading style sheet impact in the mobile phone. In the article, the author mentions that many designer of mobile try to use numerous expressions of varying interfaces, contexts, and automation to apply to mobile computing. One of most important thing that make mobile computing more dominant is that designer need to build the system in support of as many as possible unique. It includes in use and user define characteristic. The author also mentions that there are two emerging roles that make the impact on cascading style sheet in the context of computing to mobile computing. The first role is independence and the second role is usability.  The author emphasizes that the application of the cascading style sheet standard can improve data delivery across independent devices with varied bandwidth and resource availability. Therefore, cascading style sheet plays essential role in evolution and expansion of mobile computing.

I think this article relates to class because in class we have been discussed about how cascading style sheet specify the presentation style such as colors, line, internally, or externally, and so on. Beside that we have learned some coding about CSS. Nowadays, we can use our cell phone to launch to website. However, when we use phone to launch to website, some of the feature does not appear on our phone because it does not have much function than desktop or laptop because of CSS was limited on mobile phone.

  1. I didn’t know there was any impact of CSS on mobile technology. I thought that CSS was primarily used for creation of websites, for example font, color, background, and etc. It is interesting to see that CSS is emerging in different markets to separate itself from the competition.

  2. I really enjoyed reading your post. It is interesting to know that there is a big impact of CSS in mobile phones. We did talk in class how HTML 5 has new features that help coders apply and orient the website according to smaller devices such as phones and Ipads. I believe that we are starting to move in a direction on mobile technology and leave behind desktop computers.

  3. I have begun to wonder how the technical world has started changing in regards to the mobile generation. CSS it seems is one of the many changes coming to websites, applications, software and hardware. I can’t wait to see what else is going to be affected! How technology changes is incredible.

  4. Good find on this article. I never thought about what advances would be made in the mobile telecommunication world. With our phones become more and more like computers, I could just imagine would could happen in the near feature with CSS. Adobe is trying to come out with Adobe CSS Shaders, which, I think would be really neat to see on mobile devices and would bring web surfing to a whole new level.

  5. Wow!! first of all I must say great article. I did not know that there were any impact of CSS on mobile technology. I actually did not know because of the CSS we are not able to access the whole website on the phone now it all make sense. Good read! thanks for sharing.
