Can you change it in Chrome, IE, or Firefox? Without doing some hacked up shit? Can you tell your regular browser to serve up the iPhone version of the site? Not unless the website is coded that way.

true. but with the ipads higher resolution it seems like it should not WANT to be seen as a smartphone type device. it doesn't seem like it would be difficult to make it detect that a mobile version of the site is available and offer you a choice. someone will probably write an "app" for that before too long.

Hmm, that would be a nice solution hang, having the browser detect two versions. But alas, this kind of functionality is typically up to the coder of the page by implementing the option to choose the mobile/full, high/low bandwidth, flash/html version, etc...

So I have "acquired" myself one of these fancy iPads.. Fun little toy but I don't see how they ever thought it will replace laptops or computers. As per Phatz request, I put in the effort and changed it so the regular theme comes up when browsing on the device. Hope you like!

PS - did you have your kid yet ???

Haha from the late response yes I did, and sweet no more crappy look on the iPad

Yea this will never replace a pc for a IT guy etc, but for someone like me who just surfs it can do 80% of what I do on the Internet

I'm going to end up getting one to use as a 'portfolio' for my photo stuff.. A couple of guys I shoot with have one and it's a super slick way to do it. The display is so nice.

They're expecting the new iPad2 to be released in June or so, if you can hold out.
