Adam,

Thanks.

Looks like About.com is not related to allabout at this point.

Ah interesting. Same story than Yahoo! they started as a co-branding and been owned by Yahoo! Japan and then now seems to be owned by Navi. Similar story than Yahoo! and Yahoo! Japan. Thanks Adam.

So we didn't receive any answers to the previous contact aka Comment #1

Let's see. 
Windows Phone 8 IE 10 receives Desktop version too.

When faking Chrome Mobile 30 Android 4.4, we are directed to which is a perfectly working version on Firefox OS.
http://touch.allabout.co.jp/?spref=

On Firefox OS, we still receive the desktop version. This is not fixed. The script in the home page has not changed yet.

They just need to add 
    (navigator.userAgent.match(/Mobi/i))
in 
     if( (navigator.userAgent.match(/iPhone/i)) 
      || (navigator.userAgent.match(/Android(.+)?Mobile/i)) 
      || (navigator.userAgent.match(/BlackBerry/i)) 
      || (navigator.userAgent.match(/Tizen/i)) )
to improve a lot things.

They would also catch things like iPod Touch, that they don't catch right now, and also IE Mobile users.

We need to find a direct contact there.

Trying to establish contact. Not many traces of Japanese engineers on linkedin working for allabout.

There is an ex-employee, a bit of a shot in the dark, but let's try.
