Apple has published a iPad Ready Websites page that highlights some of the top-shelf properties that have been optimized for viewing on the iPad. Yes, that means these sites are “Flash-free” at least to a certain degree, though as of this writing it’s questionable whether this beauty is more than skin deep.
Thereupon, listed sites include CNN, Reuters, New York Times, Vimeo, Time, Major League Baseball (Get a free MLB 2010 season preview), White House, Virgin Atlantic, Sports Illustrated, Flickr and TED — a good start and I applaud these sites for making the leap of faith required.
Still, it would be great if everyone, not just iPad users, could enjoy these standards-based, Flash-free sites. Here’s hoping we’ll be seeing a whole lot more sites getting on board and making them available to everyone…
What’s your take?
