Access All Google Play Services from Anywhere in the World
With the recent announcement of the launch of TV shows and Magazines on Google Play, Google now offers a wide range of portable, cloud-based multimedia experience for its users including Apps, Games, Books, Music, Movies, TV shows, and Magazines. Unfortunately, access to everything beyond apps and games is limited to US-residents only. Since there does exist a world beyond the US (we have personally confirmed it, believe it or not), XDA Senior Member kishankpadiyar has shared with us a method to expand that access worldwide, as long as you have a rooted Android device and Google Play Store 3.7.11.
Update: It appears that XDA Member m.sabra originally wrote about this method a few months back when Google added Books and Movies to Play Store upon re-branding it from Android Market. You can visit this forum thread to join the original discussion.
While the method isn’t exactly short, it isn’t all that hard either. First of all, you will be required to install Market Enabler from the APK and DROIDvpn from Play Store. Then, launch DROIDvpn and register for an account. You now have everything you need to make it work. For the rest of the instructions and more details, head over to the forum thread.

Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...
The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....
This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place! When we get so involved in our...
