I’d like to come back to Nik btw cause i owe him an answer (he wrote me a PM but I didn’t came back to him yet):
Tim’s cool example should look good for iPad/iPhone.
Before I’d really mind about the responsive stuff (such as I did these days), I’d mind about a second and optimized layout for the mobile devices.
Therefore I double my opinion that with the iPhone/iPad redirect-action Softpress already did a so grat job in optimizing pages for each single device.
There are a couple of different opinions in how to optimize or build a web-page for covering the need of “all devices”.
Here are a few of my (unaware) cents:
Start mobile-design thinking first. This forces to think about min-needs (content and function).
Hover, tool-tipps, image-zoom, various link-appearance and such stuff are outdated!
Strange thesis I know - but really: A touch experienced user do not expect such functions. They expect what they see - but not what they probably see later (or even never will).
A lot of those functions furthermore requires the load of huge and often various libraries. All of them can be added later to the desktop version and adding is easier than deleting.
One key feature for mobile stuff could be e.g. accordion to keep content compact.
Re-arrange all that compact stuff later to an extended desktop version. Flavor this with the outdated stuff if necessary.
And as I already mentioned in another list:
