New York Post Web Site blocks iPad. Not a new Strategy. Here is how to Avoid the Block

German iPad users are already used to get blocked on a major newspaper. Here is the easy work around.

When I got my iPad 2 one of the first sites I surfed to was Bild Zeitung. The biggest German newspaper is blocking though iPads and points users to thee Bild iPad app that costs monthly subscription fees. Now The New York Post did the same thing in the United States. The issue is currently the top story on Techmeme. What I use to still access the bild zeitung online, and I assume tons of other German iPad users is changing the browser referrer to a desktop browser.

Safari does not support this on the iPad, but you can download the free (and actually pretty cool) Terra browser from the app store. In the settings of the Terra browser you just need to change the Identify As option ot Firefox for instance. Now you can access the New York Post again on your iPad. Terra is neat Safari alternative. It supports for instance already tab browsing, a feature Apple is adding in iOS5.
