It’s 2016 and I still come across people who use the word “web” to mean “desktop” and the word “mobile” to mean “native.”

Cannot parse.

@adactio was just in at a place where there was “touch” (m dot but not actually “m.”), “web” (desktop), “mobile” (native) & “mobile 2016.”

@adactio having a superiority complex is part of the Brighton territory, don’t you think? Or is thinking an optional extra?
