Bypass Unifi blocking and censoring using a DNS switch or VPN connection


If you’re on Unifi you might have noticed that some sites are blocked and it’s due to government directives to block these sites.  Now that goes against what the Government of Malaysia promised it’s stakeholders during the advent of the MsC, in which it promised to not censor the internet. If you remember, somewhere in August 2008, the government issued a similar directive to...

SKMM on my Unifi Downtime


Did you know Malaysia has a Multimedia and Communication Commission that oversees the quality of service for telecommunications companies including the broadband services they provide.

Steve Jobs has responded to many emails personally and so has his successor Tim Cook. There have even been reports of Palm’s CEO responding to customer...

Unifi sucks: Here’s why


Last year I moved into my new place, and had to apply for Yes! broadband because my place wasn’t Unifi ready yet. I blogged about how much I enjoyed the Yes! experience and even recommended it to most friends and family.
