Today my friend emailed me a link to an article on TheVerge. Unfortunately my friend had been browsing on his smart phone and linked the mobile specific URL. When I opened the article on my iMac I was greeted with a 450x300 pixel image stretched to over 400% its natural width. For a less painful user experience TheVerge should redirect users using non mobile devices to the standard site. If you're looking for an easy to use server-side browser detection library I highly recommend Jon Ursenbach's MobileESP fork.
