Dave Winer on iPhone web browser useability

Today’s iPhone isn’t a reading device

It’s behaving like no web browser I’ve ever seen, and it’s behaving badly. It’s breaking an implicit agreement between all platforms that co-exist on the web. We create sites that assume nothing about the device they’re being rendered on, and browsers should take care to make our text readable for users of their device. The iPhone web browser doesn’t keep that promise.
