iPad: Faking HTTP headers to bypass mobile sites

So. Guess what? If I go to the Hulu or the Daily Show site, I'm presented with a mobile version of their site. No, sir!

I didn't like that, so I set about hacking an existing HTTP Proxy to substitute the iPad HTTP headers with ones copied from my Mac.

The good news: it works! Well, for the more naive sites like the Daily Show at least.

The bad news: I still can't run Flash in my browser. So still no Daily Show.

Give it a whirl yourself, my fork of RabbIT is up on github.
