I'm thinking your browser had some sort of setting to where it was viewing the landscape version of the site in portrait. Theres nothing really to be done about it, sorry if I got crazy with you, but don't know what else I can do to explain it has been like this for months by design.
Currently the ONLY platform that does not wrap the headlines is WP8, due to the fact ms has us on some stupid compatibility list, so its ignoring the view port.
OK, well, firstly.. Sorry for getting snippy with you... I was just getting rather frustrated with your replies.
I can guarantee you that there are no such settings changes going on with my device. Nothing at all has changed on it between one day having the wrapped headings, and the next day having the scrolling ones. I used several browsers, and they were ALL doing it one way, and are now doing it another.
This is a change at Neowin's end, not mine.

We think it has something to do with a compressed mobile css file.
We may at one time had a compressed css file on the live servers and obviously that doesn't work very well
And even though it may have looked better it didn't look the way it was intended.
Maybe an option is something to look into because tbh I found the "old" way of displaying news better also (it's not annoying enough to make this a priority)
Assuming this is something that got changed in the last 2 days, it's very likely the culprit.
To be honest, I really can't see how ANYone would rather have to manually scroll headings rather than seeing them wrap around. One gives you all the info at a glance, the other means you have to faff around scrolling the title just to see if you're interested in the topic or not.
Why not just have multiple skins, like we do for the desktop, and let the user decide which they prefer?
