I'm still squarely in the camp where I prefer the freedom, space, and usability of the desktop vs mobile unless you're really doing something highly mobile specific with geo location and activities (maps, Pokemon Go). But for things like chats or web pages, desktops are so much easier and faster to use.
Is the mobile web better than the "regular" web?

Google's AMP optimizes for mobile, meaning that AMP articles and pages should load much faster than normal pages.

Also: Many startups launch mobile-online web-base services.

Some social services, such as messaging services (Snapchat, Allo, Confide, etc.) are mobile only.

These are reasons why the mobile web is better than the "regular" web.

Are there any advantages to the "regular" web over the mobile web?

I wish @slackhq's threading system felt a little more comfortable and intuitive to use. I like it, but initiating it via having to hover and then carefully target the thread icon is a bit tedious. It would be nice to just be able to write directly under the post in question, and even better, if you're replying to the most resent post showing on your screen, have an option to reply in thread instead of a new post.

Dear @twitter, changing the reply icon to one that looks like a conversation icon doesn't automatically make twitter a great platform for conversations.

From personal storage, to cloud storage, back to personal storage. The internet is cyclic. And the price probably isn't too bad if you want to handle all the logistics yourself.

Mmmmm, this is finally getting interesting and competitive. The better Google can match Apple with it's supply chain, the better off we'll all be regardless of if you're in the Google or Apple camp.

Btw, which are you in?

Hmm, with @VueJS, new Vue({ el: '.someclass', component { TestComponent }}); will assign a Vue root to an element with the class 'someclass' on it, but only for the first one it finds, not for the full array of them that may be on a page. A little quirky and not working as one could expect, but I guess that's only if you think of 'el:' as a selector instead of a loose string representation...

Retweeted a post showing a screenshot for iOS 11 and wrote 10 instead. Sadly, it made no difference.

Iterating Design

Like code, you really need to iterate your design. It may feel like you should completely design everything up front and then code to it, but often times design can change and evolve over time especially when other eyes start to help out. It's both similar to coding and a bit different. More communal and sometimes more subjective rather than objective. But either way, it will evolve, so make sure you're taking that into account as you sit down to design something.
