iDevice optimized front page solution

I found this link long time ago, lost it and now found it again. This is my solution for faster loading of this great, addicting, etc site on your mobile! :P

http://www.google.com/gwt/n

I'm sorry, I have no idea who to give credit for the link.

This is the generated result for the front page:

http://www.google.com/gwt/n?u=http%3...oucharcade.com

Looks good and pictures fit nice. What sucks is that you can't stay logged in to the forums for long. Also noticed that links on the new games and price drops don't work.

I like this better than an RSS feed. Those tend to delay...

Why don't they just use the ON THIS SITE solutions for the front page AND the forums I mentioned in my thread.

I know this topic has been brought up before, however I would like to make a direct suggestion. By the look of things (and the images stored in wpcontent) this site uses WordPress. If this is the case, you should download and install the WPtouch plugin. For more info on the plugin go to http://www.bravenewcode.com/wptouch, and for an example go to http://chris.pirillo.com (on your iPod or iPhone).
EDIT: For the forums, I have found a plugin that would work. There is a demo at http://www.elforro.com/, and I will add a link later to download.
EDIT 2: Link is http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=171947

That would be nice. This site should have been entirely optimized from the beginning. Ohh well... no hard feelings... k?
