What is a demand-side platform (DSP) and real-time bidding (RTB)?
Those days when advertisers would buy huge blocks of untargeted mobile advertising with little idea about where or when the advertisements run are numbered, or so we’re told.

Responsive Web Design (RWD) has made a huge impact as an approach to designing for mobile.
