The theft of mobile devices accounts for a high percentage of street crime offences across the United Kingdom. Can technology assist the lawful owner and/or law enforcement agencies by designing a secure innovative solution to identify mobile device usage, or the location of that device, post theft or loss?

A practical, demo-heavy, developer-focused session on how to debug mobile web apps.
The workshop is aimed mainly at people who have probably done some web development, but aren't familiar with the tools available for web development on mobile.
The main tool being demonstrated will be weinre - http://phonegap.github.com/weinre/
The aim is that even if you've not these tools before, you'll be able to set up and use them to debug your own web apps on real mobile devices by the end of the session.

Key points: this session with give practical take aways rather than inspirational concepts & there will be haribo.
Theres a lot of buzz around mobile design, examining adaptive designs, creating focus etc and these are all good forward thinking moves and highly relevant, but as so often happens accessibility is being forgotten. The first thing that will jump to most peoples minds is the image of a blind person but for many users mobile devices are actually wonderfully accessible to the blind but are next to unusable for people with physical disabilities. I intend to look at how many well known design conventions for desktop are inverted for mobile, how Fitts law has been turned on its head and show how a basic understanding of ergonomics is now massively important and will change design conventions over the coming years, and I will discuss how these aspects dont just affect disabled users, they affect every single user of mobile devices.
