Takeaway: "Ok, but how is that useful?" has been a dismissive judgment since the beginning. Even of things that we consider obviously useful today. Like recorded sound. Good to remember that obvious utility isn't a day-one discovery — sometimes it takes decades.

Takeaway: Forbes shows off their latest incarnation of their mobile website, m.forbes.com, a great example of a Progressive Web App (PWA). Based on Google’s Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) technology, the new mobile website is a bridge between mobile optimized websites (such as responsive and adaptive) and compiled apps downloaded from Apple’s iTunes store or Google Play. Look for more PWA websites that offer a more app-like experience such as gesture-based navigation, without the user overhead of downloading updates from an app store. For developers and site owners PWA avoids the cost of development and maintenance across multiple mobile operating systems. We plan to monitor the adaptation of this new mobile option.
