    While the Internet has become standardized and simple to use, mobile browsing can be downright frustrating due to ill-formatted pages and lack of standardized URLs, says article author Colin Gibbs. We already know this and so, Mobile Top Level Domain Ltd is addressing the standardization issue by offering the suffix .mobi, while Opera Software ASA and Novarra Inc. are offering browsers that format Internet content to fit mobile phones…;)

    And then we have the plethora of "mobile-related" sites that don't offer a mobile-friendly option. (Present company excluded, of course.)

    I am amazed how hard it can be to get an app downloaded direct to Palm sometimes. For some programs, it is impossible. (WHY MyBible has to do a Windows installer for a program with NO desktop component is beyond me....for example.)
