    It appears that AOL decided to optimize Engadget for mobile devices 6 1/2 years ago and never bothered to update to allow mobile browsers to view the desktop version of the site. Engadget done right for your cellphone!

    BGR uses WordPress, so I have no idea why the mobile version of the site appears.
