mobile toucharcade!

I was just browsing TA on the touch and I hit refresh and it automatically brought me to this link http://reader.mac.com/mobile/v1/http....com%2Ffeed%2F

No forums though.

That's interesting! Opening the URL on a normal browser doesn't work, but indeed in Safari on the iDevice it gives nice short snippets of the latest 10 posts.

How can it do that? I had to manually enter the URL on my iPod. How can it know? Even in incognito mode on Chrome, it still knows.

Yeah I also manually typed the URL when I was on my iDevice. What I was trying to say that if I enter the URL on my iDevice I get the mobile page, but if I type the URL in Chrome on my laptop, it doesn't work.
And yes, websites can see with which browser you're visiting.

I think you're right Danny, the URL has the words "reader" and "feed" in it. So I guess it's simply a nicely formatted RSS feed.

Just run it off the google proxy. It mobilizes things pretty effectively.
