Mobile is now the first screen

Mobile devices are replacing television as the first screen on which customers view video, because young people’s viewing habits are changing more rapidly than broadcasters can keep up with.

The promise of service workers

At the Velocity conference, Google’s Patrick Meenan talked about service workers – a way to run scripts in the browser, separate from the web page, opening the door to features which don’t need a web page or user interaction.
