The concept is used by a games company who’s name I can’t remember but its pretty clever and theres nothing really that can be done about it…

So this is basically a gateway and it’s not running on the local client browser. Same way there are sites that you can choose from hundreds of proxy’s to access international content or basically change your IP address. The downside is always speed! It’s a fantastic idea don’t get me wrong but, I find it hard to view HQ content on a “non-local client browser”.

This reminds me of

I tried skyfire once and it was cool for watching Flash video but it was difficult to interact with the swf.

A friend of mine, which is not in tunes with anything that happening, showed me this browser app he downloaded on his iPhone running flash sites.

It’s called CloudBrowse and it run great on iPhone and iPad. It is an iPhone app but so you won’t be able to enjoy a sharp full screen like the iPad but it works and itLs free.
