How are sites adapting to cater for iPad (or other tablets)?

Quite aside from developing apps - or webapps, iPads are accounting for a significant and growing proportion of traffic to websites through the browser. To optimise a site for both what you might call PC web and for tablets, there's more to it than just offering alternatives to Flash.
For example, 'clickable' areas should be defined as larger than normal to account for 'fat fingers'; text size should be reviewed; sites should define input fields as e.g. 'search' or 'email address' so that the appropriate keyboard displays on the device.
I'd be interested to know what other rules people can think of. Also, does anyone know of sites that have actually been modified or re-designed to take account of these requirements?
