Okay so I have no idea why the carousel header of my current project does not respond to touch to scroll on mobile devices. The website is http://proposalenvy.com/journal. Touch anywhere within the carousel area and slide your finger up or down to see what I mean. However, if your initial touch is on the white background the page will scroll normally.
I also saw a similar issue on the Moviefone website: http://www.moviefone.com/dvd. Load that on your mobile browser and only the white background responds to touch scroll but not if your initial point of touch is on the movie posters.
