If the NYPost wasn’t total garbage anyway, I’d be upset. Hopefully the backlash from this move discourages others from copying this game plan.
The Post also works on Android Honeycomb tablets as well. Clearly, Apple isn’t going to be happy about this. David Winer writes as much:
Okay this is bad. This is breaking the web. If no one used the iPad it wouldn’t matter. But lots of people use it.
I wonder how Apple feels about this? I can’t imagine they like it. I can see the ads now. “Get an Android tablet to read the web.”
Perhaps just being able to hide the fact that I am using an iPad running Safari in the Prefs would be enough.
