    Is there anyway to disable safari from going to the mobile (aka toned down version) of websites?

    Some sites, such as Meebo, won't allow you to becuase of the lack of certain features on the iPod (Such as and "Enter" button, lack of being able to handle popups, etc)

    1) iPods DO have an Enter button.
    2) iPods CAN handle pop-ups.

    Any other lies?

    No, it has a return button.
    Meebo has in-window (but still connected) pop-ups that are movable from the browser, something that the iPod cannot handle.

    i still remember reading somewhere that you could disable the browser so that servers won't think you are running from an iPod Touch and using a mobile browser....

    anyone else know?
