Scripting News: The NY Post, the iPad and the web
Another thing I find really annoying is that wordpress.com shows me something vastly different when I look at one of their sites when I come on an iPad. It’s the stupid trend du jour. Everyone thinks that everyone reading on the iPad wants Flipboard. If I wanted it, I would read the web using Flipboard.
The thing is this — the iPad has a perfectly functional web browser. It isn’t a “mobile” web browser. It has a full-size screen. It doesn’t need any accomodations to be readable, it is readable as-is.
Agreed. The whole point of Safari on the iPad is to be able to hold desktop web pages in your hands, not to be spoon-fed scaled-down sites.
