context needed[edit]

I feel like the "made necessary by" bit needs a "say's who". But the bigger issue is that this page is entirely without the context of the framework's relation to the larger question of mobile approaches. Responsive design is the elephant in the room. Maybe a subsection devoted to comparing jQuery Mobile to media-query-driven responsive design which contains information about when each might be more appropriate would help out. It seems like at this date that responsive css is frequently more cost-effective than maintaining separate sites... but not always. It would be good to outline some of the use cases for when people find a separate site (driven by, for example, jQuery Mobile) of use. -- (talk) 16:10, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

One good exercise is to listen to old footage of IBM extolling OS/2 while Microsoft extolled NT while who held the rights to unix ?
