William Stanek here, continuing to talk about a scripting/programming bug that was driving me absolutely bonkers. The code bug is this:
Often when you visit web sites and are using Internet Explorer 8 on 64-bit Windows 7, you are redirected to a web page optimized for mobile browsers - and mobile browser pages aren't exactly what I call user-friendly. Most mobile browser pages provide only summary information, which is nothing like what you actually are searching for.
Here were my original examples:
- Visit www.etrade.com and get redirected to wireless.etrade.com
- Visit www.intel.com and get redirected to m.intel.com
- Visit www.sony.com and get redirected to m.sony.com
I told readers: Good luck finding anything on these mobile sites... except for frustration. And added:
The original post is here. How many webmasters responded so far and took corrective action? Out of 25 sites I bookmarked: 3. Out of the 3 listed above: 1 (www.intel.com is working).
Thanks for reading, time for me to get back to work! Hope you'll take a look at my new book Windows 7: The Definitive Guide. Also just released is my book Exchange Server 2010 Administrator's Pocket Consultant.
