Content adaptation is the action of transforming content to adapt to device capabilities. Content adaptation is usually related to mobile devices that require special handling because of their limited computational power, small screen size and constrained keyboard functionality.

Content adaptation could roughly be divided to two fields:

  1. Media content adaptation that adapts media files
  2. Browsing content adaptation that adapts Web site to mobile devices.

Famous quotes containing the words adaptation and/or content:

    In youth the human body drew me and was the object of my secret and natural dreams. But body after body has taken away from me that sensual phosphorescence which my youth delighted in. Within me is no disturbing interplay now, but only the steady currents of adaptation and of sympathy.
    Haniel Long (1888–1956)

    Societies have always been shaped more by the nature of the media by which men communicate than by the content of the communication.
    Marshall McLuhan (1911–1980)
