This video is not available in your country, bypass it

Image
This video is not available in your country - When I tried to watch Chris Lynn catch in IPL 7 against RCB video in YouTube, I was not able to watch it. Then I found that the video owner has published this video only to specific countries. If a owner wants to target only USA people then he/she can select USA in geographical location. So those video can't be watched by the people outside USA.

Solution:
There are lot of solution to bypass it. One of the easiest way is using proxy. I tried using http://hidemyass.com/ proxy website and it worked for me fine. Open the proxy site and write YouTube website in the website bar. Then search for the video you want to see.

Does it violates any policy?
No, it does not violates any policies.

Firefox OS 2.0 design exposed

Image
Firefox OS 2.0 - Mozilla has said in the last version of Firefox OS mobile operating system will be a significant change in the interface areas. Recent exposure of the screenshots shows that latest Firefox OS 2.0 interface design is different from Firefox OS 1.3.

From the above screenshot you can see it has got circular icons. The translucent interface is more apparent. It is worth mentioning that the multi-tasking, notification and unlock type is very similar to Apple's iOS 7.

Firefox has added EverythingMe function to its new OS version. Mozilla has not announced the release date. But it seems that we need to wait for sometime to run Firefox 2.0 in our mobile.
