can an IPAD UI function as a desktop UI

Hi all, I'm a UI asked by a client to create a UI for Ipad and a Web App with the same functionality and workflows. I've been asked by engineers to keep the UI the same on the ipad and desktop web app. I'm wondering if anyone knows of research on this subject, can an Ipad UI function just as well as a desktop UI?

Deciding whether to use a "Show n items per page" control

Hi all,

How do you decide whether to include a means to control how many list
items to display?

In an earlier thread (http://www.ixda.org/discuss.php?post=46070),
someone pointed to 37Signals' "Getting Real," in which they
suggest that preferences like these are a cop-out, a little decision
that one shouldn't force on the user.
