I’m just here with a quick little post as a bit of a public service announcement – I feel I need to tell you about one of my favourite ever things on the internet because I hope it’ll brighten your life a little like it’s brightened mine – Hola Better Internet.
Hola! is vpn and media player site that lets you browse the internet on proxy servers as if you were somewhere else in the world. I use it through a Chrome plug-in to access all sorts of sites – mostly to watch stuff on American Netflix or Hulu and I think it’s just awesome because Netflix in the US has some much better shows and movies that we get here. It also means that Jim can watch shows on the BBC iplayer and 4oD and the likes from his hotel room in India too!
But it has lead me to realise something, Americans, your TV adverts are just awful, and mostly for phone companies, or Sour Patch Kids. And there are so many of them. I really don’t know how you cope……but I have found out you have wifi cars and we don’t yet!
One word of warning though, switch it off when you’re shopping or you’ll get frustrated with the fact that sites never show you the price in the correct currency!
