I go to this website on a daily basis. It's probably the one I got to second most. I realize last week that WWDC was going on so the iPhone optimized view was disabled. My question is when is it coming g back? I really prefer it better than the reguslr one. Since it has been disabled I have found myself not viewing the website because it is a pain in my rear to zoom in and out to view stories when I am used to the iPhone optimized format.

Can anyone clue me in on when it's coming back?

The short answer is we had to do a lot of updates to keep the sight going under the WWDC load, and the iPhone version of the site is very unhappy about that. We're working hard to woo it back into full functionality -- we love it too -- and hopefully we'll have it back soon!

Thanks Rene for the Update. I really enjoy the information that I get here. I will be waiting for it to come back online. Take care

iPhone version uses less bandwidth but is incompatible with bandwidth saving caches we're using to keep the whole site up. Irony, oh so bitter...

Hi Rene,
I clicked on a story on my iphone and the page was mobile theme formated. I clicked back to the main page and the mobile theme was gone. Is there an eta for its return? I miss it so.

Mobile Version has been back up for a while now, but some users aren't getting it some times. What makes it so frustrating for them -- and us -- is that we haven't figured out why or what pattern. Intermittent problems are the hardest to track down.

It could just be that our current cache still isn't playing nicely with the iPhone version.

We're on it, and apologies for the frustration some users are experiencing :(

I just went to it on mobile Safari but didn't see the option? Where is it? And maybe the cookie settings on mobile Safari are messing it up or something?

I didn't do anything on my iPhone. But the mobile/iPhone site just started coming up for me again a week or so ago. Still coming up this morning fine as well.

I get the mobile site sometimes, but when I click to go to the blog, it reverts back to the web version. I miss the mobile version :(
