Have you ever wished that you could
getPercentRemaining() to find out the battery charge left in a users device, or
getProtocolRateTx() to find out about the connectivity of a device?
These are some of the methods available in the Intel Web 2.0 Technology Development Kit (TDK).
Imagine if your Web 2.0 application could be aware of the platform it is running on and its environment. It could, for example, leverage multi-core power to provide more immersive user interfaces, postpone certain tasks during low power situations, avoid network traffic over low bandwidth/high latency connections, etc.
I have to admit… I wouldn’t have guessed that this would be the next API out of Intel!
