The smart ones recognise the change that's happened and build Apps that give their iOS users the best experience to keep them coming back to their site. The dumb ones bitch about it in forums like some weird Darwinian death song.

Not sue what you're arguing here relative to this discussion...but actually, the "smart ones" are not just building for one platform, but multi-platform.

Remember when Steve Jobs said that browsing the web on the iPad is the "best web browsing experience you'll ever have" and "better than a laptop" etc? He didn't say "the smart ones ditch the web and build apps".

Apps are great, but they are not easily made by just anyone, expensive to make and maintain, and better suited to specific purposes and services, not the "open" nature of browsing and checking out people's photo galleries and home-made website publishing efforts. Not to mention, there's fierce competition for app placement on people's home screens. Clicking links in a blog or forum to someone's photo gallery will always be a better initial UX path to shared content.

Anyway, back to the meta tag... it doesn't take long to find a website where initial-scale is set to 1... the site I have open in another tab right now has it if you view source.

Looks like a very cool tablet. In many ways superior to the iPad with features such as USB and less general lock-down. We'll start seeing this and other similar devices in our web traffic logs before too long.

We don't live in an iOS-only world.
