Outside of the US and want to access US-restricted content? No problem!

Vevo was recently released on the App Store, and it’s one of those apps that contain US-restricted content (namely, music videos from popular artists).

Pandora Radio is also another app that’s limited to the US – if you’re outside of the US, then you can kiss any radio-listening dreams you had goodbye.

Then there’s Steam. There’s a whole bundle of games that are just plain unavailable outside of the US (namely, the Rockstar collection), not to mention all the price-gouging that goes on if you’re outside of the US.

Frankly, I was getting sick of all this. This is the 21st century – if you put it on the internet, expect it to be accessed by the whole internet.

With Super VPN Service, you can now access all of your¬†favourite¬†US-restricted content – even if you’re not from the US!

It’s pretty cool, you should totally check out their services.

DoYouFeed.com WordPress plugin causing site lag?

Well, I figured there was something wrong when my website was taking over a full minute to load.

I used Safari’s Web Inspector to narrow it down to one file: load.php

Now, that file is a part of DoYouFeed.com’s wordpress plugin.

For the uninitiated, the DoYouFeed plugin allows wordpress users to activate a iPhone/iPod Touch friendly version of their website – using specialised User Agent calls and so forth.

Unfortunately, the plugin was making my site lag like hell – freshbytes, too – so I have disabled it for now.

If anyone knows any wordpress-friendly iPhone/iPod Touch friendly content formatters/aggregators, then get in touch with me, either via comments on this post, or the Contact page.

Ideally, I’d like something like the tumblr-optimised iPhone/iPod Touch specific version, ala Adam D’s tumblelog in iPhone format. That’s seriously ultimate.
