I'm happy to announce the sixth part of our Re-imagining Apps for Ultrabook™ video series is now available. In this episode, we'll review the new technologies in Ultrabook computers that allow us rethink what desktop application design can be. Then we'll look at how Ultrabooks applications fit in to new multi-device use cases.
Today it's not just one device that defines our computing experience, it's multiple devices and how they're used together to get things done. Consider more than half of laptop owners in the United States also own a smartphone. A third of smartphone owners have a tablet and an increasing number of people -more than one in ten- have all three. In Multi-Device Design we'll look at how we can design Ultrabook™ applications to live this new cross device reality.
