It depends. If it's a site I use a lot, then I welcome an app. They are invariably better in every way than a mobile site. But if it's a site you're only using casually, you certainly don't want an app.
Designers need to use better tools. Unfortunately most of them stick to photoshop as if their lives depended on it.
Most of us haven't forgiven MS nor trust them again, yet. Why use Bing when there's Duck Duck Go?
The problem with that is Google needs to provide consistent results across all devices.
Google long ago abandoned giving consistent results across anything. The days when "I'm third in the search for
The modern way to do mobile is responsive design. This also makes it better for desktop, because if you shrink your browser window down, the content resizes and relays out, and uses alternative layouts as appropriate, so you never have to scroll horizontally to read a web page.
I know nothing of these price gouging laws of which you speak. But then I live in a civilised country, where people aren't taught from birth to fuck each other over if possible.
Many stores will simply close altogether; it's not worth staying open in an emergency subject to price fixing laws if they can just sell at the same price after the emergency is over anyway.
Sure it is, because the stock will sell far faster - assuming it's the kind of store that sells practical items.
Given that they would be open when the emergency is over anyway. All that period of high sales would be wasted opportunity.
And that's just from the purely selfish capitalist angle. Mostly shops are run by decent human beings so will strive to be open in times of need anyway because they don't want to cause even more suffering.
Everyone pulled together on 9/11. Anyone who saw it as an opportunity to increase profit is a shitbag.
It's quite different from a general policy to match supply with demand by varying price.
**Colligan laughed off the idea that any company â" including the wildly popular Apple Computer â" could easily win customers in the finicky smart-phone sector.

Gruber is only saying that 3rd party apps suck at this stage. Every thing else about the Watch he loves.
The iPhone didn't even have 3rd party apps when it launched. And it's first round of apps were web apps, which also sucked.
And yet the iPhone has been the most successful smartphone ever.
It's not a matter of more government it's a matter of better government.
You're missing the part where Henry Ford offered those wages to ALL his employees. And the part where he lowered his salary to the same as the workers.
Because neither happened.
Even if it had have been the same, it's telling that you have to go back 100 years to find your second example.
Capitalism allows business owners and leaders to CHOOSE to make decisions like this.
Count of business owners making such a decision under capitalism: 1
Socialism forces them to do it. Liberals don't really understand the importance of this distinction.
Oh, we understand perfectly.
They don't need to prove anything to you when they get 1 million sales on the first day in a single country.
8. pour water in cup.
9. pour in the tiniest drop of milk
10. extract tea bag.
You're not an Englishman, you're an animal.
Those steps should read:
pour water in cup.
wait for 4 minutes.
extract tea bag.
Only an animal lets the milk and the teabag meet. And an Englishman lets the tea brew. What you have there is slightly milky water with a bit of brown dye in it.
