iPhone Irony

Does anyone else find it a bit ironic that neither AT&T nor Apple have iPhone-optimized versions of their web sites? Or am I the only one wondering why the iPhone’s exclusive suppliers don’t optimize their own sites for the iPhone?

    Apple’s site is viewable in the iPhone. And AT&T hates it’s customers.

    I rest my case.

    Sure, Apple’s site is viewable in the iPhone, but it’s clearly not optimized for viewing on the iPhone, nor is AT&T’s site.

    Apple’s point is that the iPhone can display unoptimized web sites gracefully.

    Understood. My point is that while the iPhone does a great job of displaying unoptimized web sites–far better than any mobile device I’ve used thus far–the mobile browsing experience is still further enhanced when the site is optimized for mobile usage.

    Hi Scott,

    Great your job with this site, it’s really fantastic for Windows-Linux integration. Thanks and encourage me to follow your steps!

    About Apple’s irony, think it’s a bit sad, but in Spain it says that “in blacksmith’s house wood spoon” (think you understand).
