Apple I've been meaning to write this for some time, and for all the time I delayed the more poignant the point I wanted to make started to become as new news came out further solidifying my angle. When I begun writing this article the iPad had not yet been revealed, iPhone OS 4 was not on the map and Apple had not yet purchased Lala. You've probably just noticed that all of these events in fact point toward Apple embracing the web more and in this article I will point out why this is not the case because I believe Apple's agenda here is similar to something we've already seen in recent history.

I do not wish to confuse people in believing that Safari will reach 99% usage, it won’t. That’s a flaw in the article if that’s not clear enough. But I do feel that Safari on the iPhone and iPad can and will veto the direction the web wants to take and that the iPad (and what comes next) will get a large marketshare (like 25-30%) such that ignoring it is being at a loss (like ignoring Firefox support on websites now is suicide).

I merely used it to point out that not all factors are there for Safari to dictate where the internet goes. The main point of your article is definitely taken (and this article was definitely a good call). As someone else already pointed out, it should strike one as odd that Microsoft must present a browser ballot while Apple works increasingly towards singling out Safari.

Unless Apple is considering new uses for the iPad (i.e. live streaming using the webcam which probably will be in v2.0), iPad internet usage is largely going be about (newspapers, emails, blogs) and videos, and doesn't cause the internet to make changes to support it.
