Now that everything’s going mobile, we’re more connected to the web than ever before.
If you’re anything like me, you have a Twitter app as well as a desktop client that you use to tweet. When someone mentions you on Twitter, your phone gives you a notification. This is great if you’re out and about and would like to stay in touch. But it’s redundant if you’re sitting in front of a computer and noticed the tweet come in as soon as your phone pinged you.
This is where the future of responsiveness comes in. Usually referred to as the layout of sites and the presentability of media in different forms of computers and screens, I think the future of technology will soon live and breathe responsiveness. That’s how we’re going to mesh together with machines and almost… become them. Scary thought. More on that later.
I would love for my devices to communicate with each other in a way that they work together to bring me the best combined experience I could ever ask for. If I’m home and in front of my computer, I want my phone to know to not ping me. As soon as I step outside the house or am in commute, I want my phone or tablet to realize this and start notifying me of the happenings in the social media world.
Wouldn’t that be lovely? I think so!
