thinking about design
Six out of ten times that I'm forced to view an "iPhone-optimized" version of a site on my iPhone, I regret it, and desperately wish there were a "pretend I'm not safari" button!
I forget where I read it, but Steve Jobs said something to the effect of, "The mobile web sucks, and will always suck." And that's why mobile Safari was designed, from the get go, to render web pages just like on the desktop.

Well, for most sites except when you're trying to get the content to stay within the frame!
