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.

Should You Get Wear? Wearer’s Practical Observations

Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
